Katoomba based visual artist Skye O’Shea combines her exploration of the subtleties of female
forms with the subcultures that entrance such women. Her work crosses an array of media and
stylistic genres from more traditional nudes to comic book illustrations and airbrushed Suicide
Girls. She first began exhibiting her work solo in 2004 and has since held shows in Singapore,
Melbourne and Sydney. To view her works visit: http://skyeoshea.net/
