A Little Wren Told Me

Since I was a child, I have been fascinated by birdlife and have been drawing and painting them from a young age.

I am from a long line of bird lovers. I grew up on farms in Victoria and Tasmania, which my parents revegetated, bringing in abundant native birds. As a child, I would often ask my grandparents how they knew something to which they would reply “A little bird told me,” indicating towards a nearby wren. These memories became the inspiration to the name ‘A Little Wren Told Me’.

I am mostly self-taught, with encouragement from my high school teacher who embraced my art and helped me develop my natural style, choosing oil paints as my medium in my teenage years to paint realistic artworks of birds and landscapes. An injury that developed into a disability affecting my upper body led me to develop my new style, using pen and Faber Castell colour pencils to draw cute birds with a slightly comic façade.
