Hey, I’m Makayla. I don’t have much experience with painting, but when I do paint, I tend to create large scale abstract expressionist pieces. Some of my favourite painters are Joan Mitchell, Adolph Gottlieb, and Mark Tobey. Although I really enjoy painting, I am much more passionate about photography. My work is usually strongly influenced by the natural world, and trying to capture the overlooked beauty in it. Most of my recent work has been strangely inspired by dead insects. Here’s a link to a really interesting series by one of my favourite photographers, http://www.catherinechalmers.com/the-leafcutters/photography/antworks-in-progress/
