Fine art prints of my work and others:
I have been tattooing professionally since 2005, and making art since I was old enough to hold a crayon. I enjoy exploring different media and artistic disciplines, but my obsession with precision and detail remain constant throughout them all. Thematically I am drawn to all motifs from nature, but particularly plants, and particularly those with herbal, medicinal or magical properties. I started taking botanical illustration classes with the wonderful Mali Moir in 2009, and this has had a strong influence on my tattooing. I also love imagery of a religious, folkloric or mythological nature and am particularly fond of Buddhist themes and European fairytales. Aesthetically my work is inspired by natural history illustrations, Baroque still lifes, Tibetan thangka paintings and 19th Century book illustrations.
I work from my own private studio, Artemisia Custom Tattooing, in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges, in a shop that I share with my husband's business, Shaun C. Duncan Custom Framing and Fine Art Printing. When I'm not tattooing or painting I enjoy long walks in the mountains, belly dancing, reading and spending time with my husband Shaun and our three gorgeous children Miles, Audrey and Lester. Shaun and I also run Lepus Luna, producing limited edition fine art prints of work by myself and others.
