Hey, I'm Hayley, an 18 year old Australian artist. I've always been attracted to things with no boundaries. Some things cannot be expressed in words - things too important or too subtle, like a gaze or a touch or a sound. But art can capture feeling in a way nothing else can. That is why I am drawn to painting (of course), but also music, sculpture and photography (even though I'm no good at photography). There is so much to thank for the beauty that this world was given, and so much to explore.
I learnt to paint from a private teacher. From then, I taught myself anatomy and began painting portraits. Recently I have been inspired by film photography, and more modern artists, though I still try to capture likeness through technique.
