I am deeply in love with the natural world and Ukrainian folk art. Through my practice, which primarily involves drawing and printmaking, I am exploring the interconnectedness between these two beautiful phenomenons.

Salmon Gums

A combination of drawing, printmaking and collage. This is my definition of the Salmon Gum tree. I enjoyed driving past these wonderful trees in Western Australia.

Motif Exhausted

I love feathers. So I drew one of them. Over and over. Motif Exhausted was part of a body of work exploring pattern in nature.

Після України (After Ukraine)

Through the processes of drawing and screen printing, I have created patterns sourced from images taken during my trip to Ukraine. I am interested in the influence of the environment and tradition in Ukrainian folk art.
