Nadia Turner is an Australian Illustrator and Artist who creates wayward wonders out of a little studio up in the Dandenong Ranges just outside of Melbourne, Australia. She works in several mediums, including acrylic on wood and canvas, ink and watercolour, paper and textile collage. Her influences stream from many areas, from the art of the surrealists, especially that of Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington, the Pre-Raphaelites, traditional folk art, various children’s books and of course, ancient myth, symbolism and legends. “I am fascinated by other worlds and other cultures. In my work I am trying to capture a moment in a character’s life and evoke a sense of otherworldliness. Just like when you look at an old photograph, I want you to wonder…. who are these creatures…what worlds do they live in…and what are their dreams?” Nadia is trying to bring a little bit more magic back into the world. www.waywardharper.com
