mainly focusing on pet portraits moving from graphite to pastel and past few months acrylic paints taken to it like a duck in water and even more so in high demand ! and having two pieces of artwork over in the uk
recently opened up a art studio in Dimboola Victoria called fur-everlasting creations art studio and have various styles of art on display my own works and that of my mothers Annette Nichols. and currently have 6 students taking lessons there by me.
my style of work ,theme is African wildlife and equine art and I also make metal sculptures using old farm materials .
ive grown up with art in the family being inspired by my mothers works learning some of her techniques and also another pet portrait artist amy naef who gave me a huge insight into art and building confidence in my own works
