Original Gouache Painting on thick textured, bright white watercolour paper. Unframed.

This large original painting features a handsome ginger monkey in a tropical jungle of frangipanis, palms, umbrella plants, cedar vine and mother in law's tongue in varying hues of teal/ sea blue.

I paint for pure pleasure and paint subjects that make me happy; things I'd like to look at or see on my own walls. Although we don't have wild Monkeys here in Australia, I still love to include them in my work because they are fabulous. This painting is highly detailed with very intricate line work and would make a beautiful bold statement to any wall. (Especially if you have a ginger Monkey already in your life).

My current paintings are inspired by old animal and plant engravings, and the crazy mix of tropical plant species growing wild in my neighbours’ front gardens. I live in the inner city of Sydney and my surroundings are a mix of victorian terrace houses and lots of amazing bird and plant life. My style is two dimensional and print like, which has much to do with my textile and graphic design background.

I’m a colour junkie and I love working in limited and interesting colour combinations. For this gouache painting I have mixed the paint into a more opaque consistency, and used acrylic too in parts to give a flat screen print feel to the piece. Colour, shape and line are the heroes, and the white line work gives my work it’s unique Australian flavour. I use premium quality light fast gouache paints and professional watercolour paper. I recommend professional framing using archival matt board and glass to protect your investment for many years to come.

All work is sold unframed and is carefully wrapped and rolled into a cardboard tube for safe shipping.
