My new murals at the Northern Beaches Hospital


Something I have been working really hard on this year were these mural illustrations. It was super lovely to go visit my murals at Northern Beaches Paediatrics clinic before it opened at the new Northern Beaches hospital in Sydney. The theme for my brief was Australian native foliage and flowers made large along with Australian native animals and insects. I sketched and painted a lot of wattle, banksia flowers and leaves, native fan palms, bottle brush flowers, macadamia leaves, gum leaves and blossoms, Blue Ulysses butterfly, dragonfly, ladybugs, birds - Rainbow lorikeets, Kookaburras, Major Mitchell Cockatoos, a Yellow Robin, green tree frogs, mushrooms, echidna and Australian native marsupials. If you want to see some of my process for the mural you can take a look at my instagram images, you will see some of my sketches and watercolour paintings on there. The artworks were scanned, cleaned up, drawn over digitally, put together in their layouts and printed onto vinyl, which was then applied to the walls of the clinic. I incorporated some of the Blue Pantone colours from their logo design into the mural as well, most notably in the wattle leaves, banksia leaves and the kookaburra feathers. I hope the families who visit the clinic love it as much as I loved painting it!
