Bundaberg artist Peta Burrows has a knack for creativity that has gone global with her intuitive-mixed media artwork now selling in New York.
Peta, 44, started painting and creating artwork three years ago hoping to inspire others locally, but her colourful artwork has now reached further afar with Peta saying it was a pleasant surprise.
“I had a lady contact me through a website I share my work on and asked me if I’d be willing to sell some art through her shop in New York,” Peta said.
“I’m extremely excited that my work is being seen in other countries. I’m also working with a company in Michigan to design some polymer stamps.”
Peta said motivation to create beautiful illustrative artwork came easily.
“I am an intuitive mixed media artist focusing on inspiring others through my art; I make prints, wood pieces, notebooks, stickers mugs and children’s decor.
“I make wooden pieces including goddesses, earthly shapes, mixed media including illustrative art.”
Peta said her artwork was influenced by her own experiences as well as people and nature.
“I love that my work touches people,” she said.
“To see the way my work can inspire others, to make them feel they are not alone and that we are all in this together, makes me happy.”
Filled with inspirational quotes, Peta’s artwork can be transformed into a variety of items including desktop calendars, notebooks, and stickers.
