ARTIST . ANIMATOR . SNAIL ENTHUSIAST

Inspired by a passion for animals and a love of native flora, Mia is a Melbourne based artist and illustrator whose work playfully brings our awareness back into the natural world. She works mainly with watercolours, pencil, pen and acrylic, and is always experimenting with new ways to connect with her environment. Her work is gentle and warm, using a calming palette and intricate detail. Mia finds great joy in capturing all she sees around her and finds her two pet snails Humphrey and Lauren to be the most dependable life models.
