ILLUSTRATION & MURALS
ABSTRACT ART PRINTS
I created this art print series with a process I usually use for my mural designs. Initially I create a whole bunch of cut outs from coloured paper. Once I have a feel for the composition I am after, I scan the elements and refine the layout and colour palette digitally. Finally I add hand drawn marks, texture and shadows to create depth. Enjoy!
KOWHAI ART PRINTS
My happy place is the New Zealand bush. I love to spend my spare time in nature, it is the ultimate reset after a busy week. This sets the scene for the inspiration and the unique Kowhai flower is the star of the show. Both native to New Zealand and immensely beautiful! The colour palette includes warm Kowhai yellow tones which are complimented by olive, moss and lichen toned greens.
