I thought i’d share with you how i work with reference images to create my paintings ✨i typically have between 2-6 reference images that i take different elements from and combine them into my own creation. i use faces as references but i never copy them directly. these are the two main references i used for hiari. (there were a few other jewellery ones too). 💘

Yooralla
18” x 24”
for sale 🖤❤️💛
acrylic on gessoed panelboard
varnished w golden msa uv protective.
this painting continues over the edges of the canvas for a tidy finish.
yooralla is an artist and the art.
a teacher and the student.
her fierce eyes tell her story- her pride for her culture, country and people is unmistakable.
she exudes a warmth and harshness all at once.
i would encourage you not to get on the wrong side of her.
dm me for any further information on yooralla. she will be on display in byron bay in a few weeks time 🙏🏼

‘matśes woman’
24” x 36”
acrylic on panelboard
for sale
this painting was referenced by multiple photographs for style. the face portion for this was heavily referenced by an alicia fox photograph. visit her website www.aliciafoxphotgraphy.com she’s incredible!!!! i have tried to honour her work and make it my own. ——————————-this piece is all about colour and simplicity. both in style and in ideal. people keep asking me why i am so drawn to paint indigenous people and i don’t know what to say. they draw me in. their natural beauty, their raw unpretence. is it their genuine connection and understanding of mother earth i am trying to document? perhaps i am trying to share that nature and self identity are what make you beautiful, or maybe i am trying to transport myself and you to see and gain understanding of this persons life and share connection that we are all human. we are all equal. i can’t answer the question fully yet. i’m still trying to understand it myself. but i’ll keep painting until i understand. maybe you have some ideas of what you think that you could share with me?.

Nandar
24” x 36”
acrylic on gessoed panelboard
for sale

a burmese woman takes a moment for herself ✨

i don’t know what to write about this piece. she makes me feel quiet. and small. she is so human. not with the distribution of paint but with her mannerisms. she self consciously fixes her hair. i am with her standing on the dirt. i can smell her sweet bidi. she’s tired but she has energy.
it has been so much fun building nandar, i feel like i have grown a lot in my practise through her and my style is just starting to take shape.
i hope you can feel her story
