Wild Magic brings together works by Annelise Triulcio and Tabitha Harmer who share a work space at The Art Factory supported studio in Wagga Wagga. The works that Tabitha and Annelise create are heavily character and story based with many thoughts and ideas integral to their creation.

Annelise’s portraits are recreated from sketches she has drawn in the past. The ideas for her characters are influenced from many different anime and cartoons. The characters have whimsical and mystical attributes reflecting the context of their back story. Tabitha’s works are inspired by a series of novels based on a clan of wild warrior cats. Tabitha has visually interpreted these characters issuing the colours she sees in their personalities to their physical colours on the works.

Annelise featured illustrations at Halfway Print Festival 2020 and exhibited in Inside Cinema vs Parallel Universe at Griffith Regional Gallery (2020). 

Tabitha Harmer is a writer, painter and illustrator who creates stories and contextualised images.
