The untamed wilderness of Tasmania, which is so rich in flora and fauna continues to inspire me. I take great delight in observing and documenting the magnificent beauty of the natural world. This long held passion for the wilderness informs all of my creative work; whether illustration, graphic design or printmaking.
I hope that through my creative practice, I can show people the sublime beauty that nature has within this world and the endless wonders of a creative mind. - Beth-Emily 2010
Beth-Emily's approach to observing or cataloging forms in nature is not scientific. Nor does Beth-Emily attempt to accurately depict or replicate the real-life subjects that she studies. Instead, Beth-Emily works by finding the unique idiosyncrasies that exist in a subject and applies these characteristics to her artworks by combining them with imagery created by her imagination.
In effect, Beth-Emily creates a hybrid of sorts, which ultimately bridge the two realms of the physical world and the world of the imagination, through the vehicle of illustration and design.
