My name is Levi, I am a Brisbane emerging outsider artist and illustrator. I am a twin and proud to be from a family lineage of artisans. As I can remember I have been making art with different media to express my feelings toward life experiences and my imaginings. I use humour and quirkiness to illustrate my personal and family life; the good. the bad and the confusing. While art helps me to express myself and recount experiences, it also illustrates my life as a female emerging artist with a disability, which in turn, hopefully creates an awareness of Outsider Art to the public and others in similar situations.
I enjoy experimenting with various media but i am keen on illustrating as i feel it is a perfect way for me to develop an, art and disability awareness, and how they work together to helps me and also helps to show other disadvantaged people how art could help them as a therapy, purpose and motivation as it helped me. Art plays an important role in my life.
As an emerging artist i am excited about my future art development as an exhibiting artist /illustrator and author. I am working on a series of autobiographical picture books that I plan to publish; which will illustrate my life and different characters,
