fine artist, tutor and art judge

I remember always being passionate about drawing, from childhood right through to now. I always knew, deep down, that being a pencil artist was my career path. Even as a youngster, I was never prolific ever, but would spend many hours absorbed totally, drawing a carefully considered work with lots of detailand . Pencils have always been my chosen medium, even though I learnt all other mediums. I thoroughly enjoy the feeling of using pencil and the effects created by pencil and can happily spend many hours with a pencil in hand. At university, I studied all forms of 2D and 3D art, but majored in printmaking, etching and lithography – both being a form of drawing. Graduating with a Diploma of Visual Arts and a Graduate Diploma of Visual Arts…

blue wrens

MATERIALS • Fabriano Artistico Hot Press 300gsm paper • Faber Castell Series 9000 greyleads in F, HB and 2B • Faber Castell Polychromos colour pencils in Dark Sepia, Prussian Blue, Sky Blue. • Violet, Rose carmine) and Brown Ochre • Light Violet, Grey Green, Light Blue and Terracotta. • Derwent Artists colour pencils in Sky Blue and Blue Grey • Knitting needle STEP ONE Fairy wrens are very social birds and spend a lot of time on the ground, so the theme of this image is the welcoming of one bird to a new group against the complex backdrop of the floor debris. All my works are carefully designed, including all the background details, negative spaces and the amount of colour to greylead. The latter is kept in my mind rather than put into the initial drawing. I like…

artist’s hints and tips

• Pencil is a wonderful medium to use, you can pick it up and draw for a short time with no cleaning up or preparation needed. This is very handy when you have lots of interruptions in the studio. • I use a hot press paper that is a pale cream colour (Fabriano Artistico 300gsm) as the smooth surface takes lots of layers of pencil and doesn’t disrupt any of the detail. • Keep your paper and work clean, use a piece of paper under your hand at all times and I wear a pair of white cotton gloves that have the thumb and first two fingers removed. This keeps any grease from your hand away from the paper. • Keep your pencils very sharp and use only light pressure, allowing the pencil…

relocation

I was born in Bryn Mawr, Pennsylvania (USA) in 1974. These days I live in the Brisbane suburb of Yeronga. I moved to Brisbane in December 2007 with my husband Eric, who is a marine biologist at the University of Queensland. I have a small studio below our home that is actually a converted garage space. I work in the studio at least three days a week. I also work three days a week as a research assistant in the School of Geography, Planning and Environmental Management at the University of Queensland. I have always been involved in art classes, starting from when I was a young child. While at University, I decided to study ecology and environmental science rather than fine art. Throughout this time, I continued enrolling in art classes…

who needs trees?

MATERIALS • Ampersand Claybord (smooth white). • Black waterproof acrylic or India ink. • Acrylic round brushes with sharp points (Numbers 2 and 6). • White cotton gloves (available at the grocery store). • A sheet of tracing paper. • Craft knife with several Number 11 blades and a sharpening stone. • Waterproof pigment pens (Numbers 005 and 01). Claybord is made up of a hard panel that has been coated with a fine layer of smooth clay. When I work on white Claybord, I like to combine painting, drawing and scratching to create a piece with a unique style and texture. I created this piece ‘Who Needs Trees?’ for an environmental art exhibit and it exemplifies why I love this technique … I can create very realistic looking animals and place them in highly unlikely settings, and…

master hints and tips

• Work out your drawing completely before beginning – it is extremely difficult to fix a big mistake neatly on Claybord. • Claybord is great for highlights and shadows. Identify the light source and shadows for your subject before you begin. • Be sure your blade is always very sharp. A dull blade will not cut through the clay smoothly. I keep a sharpening stone nearby and discard any blades with broken tips. • Your scratches should follow the direction of the fur or feathers and the shape of the body to help add to the feeling of volume and roundness. • Do not start scratching if you have wet ink on the Claybord, as the clay ‘dust’ will adhere to the wet ink and your washes will appear dirty and feel grainy.…
