Blast from the past! Looking back at my early artworks

The other night I was looking through my old sketch books and it was crazy to see how far I’ve come with my art. Especially when I could remember doing the old work and how I felt about it at the time or what inspired me. I took a few photos on my trusty mobile phone (so not the best photos I’m afraid) and … Read More Blast from the past! Looking back at my early artworks

Faery Spotting

I like to go faery spotting sometimes. The trick is knowing how to find them.. instead of looking around a tree, or in a tree, look at the tree. Look closely at the bark and the texture. Soon enough, you’re likely to see a face looking right back at you. This fella was spotted in Thailand. I was looking through my sister’s photos and … Read More Faery Spotting

Time of the Faeries

The very talented Joseph and Donny Ha Corsentino are the amazing artists behind ‘Time of the Faeries,’ which is the original source of inspiration for my own ‘Faery Photos’. (And to my mum’s horror,  my tattoo!) Geez, it’s only a tiny one mum! Hehe.. anyways, Time of the Faeries is a picture book about the faeries, angels and darklings returning to earth. It is, of course, full of amazing photographs … Read More Time of the Faeries

I heart Kirsty Mitchell Photography

I can’t remember exactly how I discovered the beautiful work of Kirsty Mitchell, but I’m so glad I did. Her photography is just breathtaking, especially her ‘Wonderland’ series.
