About

Gemma Stylz was born in London in 1982 and has been creating colourful illustrations since early childhood.

Whilst her early inspirations came from Disney and anime, a few of her current influences include the surrealist illustrator James Jean, hyper realism artist Joel Rea and Japanese artist Ozabu.

Her speciality is figurative illustration and portraiture with detailed embellishments, often with a juxtaposed contrast of delicate feminine imagery and macabre elements. She works in and on a wide range of mediums with preferences in acrylics and oils in addition to an extensive range of work on paper in traditional pencil mediums and coloured markers.

Known works are held in private collections internationally in Australia, New Zealand, Japan, Canada, the USA and the UK.
Recent exhibitions include Sydney's annual 'Cranium' exhibition, solo show 'Satori' at Tora Sumi in Balmain and group exhibition 'coelescance' at Gloucester gallery NSW

Gemma has completed two Higher National Diplomas in Fine Art and Illustration with merits and distinctions and is currently resident artist and proprietor at the Great Lakes Studio in NSW Australia, where she works on new pieces daily and holds regular solo and joint exhibitions.
