Why did you choose this picture?
I chose this picture because this is my most recent artwork and I’m pretty proud of it. It also demonstrates where I want to go with my art in the future.
Where did the idea for this art come from?
I’m a sucker for a good pun, so I thought, why not combine my love of puns with my love of realism and create a surreal, punny eyeball!!
What does this art mean to you?
This drawing shows off a bit of my light-hearted personality that people don’t always get to see due to my quiet nature. It also signifies the start of some new experimentation with surrealism and challenging my creativity.
What can you tell us about yourself?
I’m a 17 year old, girl from Australia. My love of art has really grown over the past 3 years while I have struggled with chronic health conditions. Despite the tough times, I’ve continued with my art, thriving and achieving more than I ever could have imagined! Art is really what motivates me to get out of the bed in the morning. It’s the thing that excites me and inspires me!
What more can you tell us about your art?
I have just launched my website
colourofoctober.com.au , which is an outlet I have been working on for the past year. On this site I hope to raise awareness for chronic pain in young people through my artwork, photography, and blog posts. I’ve also started to accept commissions to create custom pieces for clients this year! To be earning money from what I love doing is a dream!
If you are interested in having an artwork created, you can contact me via email: firstname.lastname@example.org or head to my facebook @colourofoctober, and send me a message!
