Got My Eye On You
I had taken many reference photos from my visit to the Australian Wildlife Walk-about Park in New South Wales but I had to take just one more! A sleepy koala captivated and enchanted me with his engaging one-eyed stare. This was my inspiration.
Before I start a piece the eyes are what I notice first. They mesmerize me. These beautiful creatures are calling me to express that they are not just mere commodities; to be exploited, used or forgotten. The technique of scratchboard enables me to capture the unique detail of my subjects that brings them to life.
