Insecurity (red-eyed Green Tree Frog)

Description : This beautiful South American Red-Eyed Green Tree Frog is perched on a seed pod of a plant. Sitting there carefully, you can see its insecurity as it is looking out for danger or threats all around it. Red-eyed Green tree frogs are not poisonous they rely on the colour of their skin to camouflage and blend in to their surroundings, when startled they open their eyes and the bright hue of red of their eyes is meant to startle the predator giving them precious time needed to flee.

I am an Australian wildlife artist based in the Hunter Valley. I love painting detailed birds, animals and flowers. I am fascinated with the spectacular beauty that surrounds us everyday. My favourite mediums to paint in are watercolours and soft pastels. 

I have only been an artist for around four years, I have always had a love of art and an appreciation for art but never considered that I might possibly have the talent to try. My Nan is an Artist so I have always been surrounded by art and have always appreciated the beauty that surrounds us. One day, out of the blue I decided to try to learn, I started teaching myself through art books, and youtube videos, and I became hooked. I decided that it didn't matter if I was the worst artist in the world, I found my passion for creating art and I would paint for me, for the joy of creating art. Since then I have taken some online paid courses and I continue to devour art books and youtube videos as well as discovering through trial and error my own styles and methods. I first started in coloured pencils for about 6 months, then moved on to watercolour painting in which I found a love of the fluidy of paint, and have been painting ever since. After a shoulder injury in November 2016 I was devasted that I was unable to paint watercolours as I had limited movement in the shoulder of my painting arm, so in a desperate bid to keep creating art I turned to soft pastel and discovered a wonderous passion for pastel. I truly adore them, I love the softness, the ability to create depth through layering, the quickness of the medium and the ability to achieve minute details or to suggest soft out of focus suggestions. I am still trying to improve my shoulder and am hoping one day soon I can return to watercolours but I adore soft pastel and I will always have a passion for creating in these mediums, I have also returned to creating in coloured pencils and I love this medium as well. As long as I am creating I am happy. I have found it is a wonderful way to cope with long term health issues, creating art helps me tune out the pain, and gives me a sense of self worth.
