Full of resplendent color and intricate background patterns, my mixed media paintings embody a spirit of whimsy incorporating color, shape and depth. The work is inspired by the natural world, color, folk art, design and drawing. I contradict my achromatic, rainy exterior environment through an intense interplay of color. Each piece reveals an inner world of sumptuous complexity via a transparent veil of encaustic medium.
FOR CREATIVE INSPIRATION
In partnership with our friends at Optus, we present the third in a three part Lost At E Minor video series that puts the spotlight on some young, handpicked Australian creatives, doing inspirational things within their chosen fields. Episode Three features 16-year old Melbourne-based producer, Gab Strum (aka Japanese Wallpaper), who has racked up thousands of plays over the past year or so via a number of well-blogged remixes ranging from City Calm Down and The Townhouses to bootlegs of The xx and Bon Iver.
