Mea'eshana PhoenixFire

Known simply as Mea or Meakitty to her friends, is an Adelaide based digital artist. Born in 1981 she's been drawing since she was able to hold her first crayon, and her means and methods have only grown and evolved with her. From chalk to paint to digital art, she's willing to explore all mediums and see what fantastic creations she can come up.

Schooled in art right up to year 12 in 2000, she then proceeded on to University where she studied for a Bachelor of Visual Arts in 2004. Majoring in Digital Art and minoring in Ceramics, Print-making and painting. Though she also challenged herself to explore other subjects such as life drawing and computer technology for more than just artistic purposes.

Since then she's dedicated a large portion of her life to exploring and expanding her mediums and now makes expressive art in many forms including mixed media, traditional painting (primarily acrylic on canvas board), polymer clay, resin and more.

Since 2001 she's been creating websites and graphic arts for her business, Weird Dreams Ink, so you'll notice a lot of her branding on her work. But all of it comes from the heart and imagination as well. Much of it is currently based on the "Manga" style of art, or the Animation style such as companies like Disney would create. Clean and simple in looks but detailed in design, always as intricate and yet delicate, and able to be appreciated by all ages and walks of life.

Currently her primary passion is Anthropomorphic art; creating fantasy creatures with human characteristics. Some of this inspiration comes from her current involvement in the "Furry Fandom" where other like-minded people share her passion for animals and nature, as well as art in all it's forms.

Though not particularly interested in showcasing her art in a formal setting, Mea's always available to commission for either web design or graphic arts, character design or illustrations.

Meet the Kitties

One of Mea's biggest passions is her cats. Rescued, often at a very young age, she's always willing to take in a stray until they find a new home, or become a member of the family. You'll probably see these guys featured in photos, or appearing on her Twitch streams at random.
