Eating Strawberries started her art in 1997 whilst still in primary school, when she entered the Australian Red Cross competition, with a drawing depicting the kind of work the red cross do, and won the state wide award for Victoria, Australia. From there she continued to practice and explore art as much as she could with the limited access she had to the art world.
She won her fist camera, a Minolta, in 2000, from the state “Water for Life challenge” in Victoria, Australia, which promoted the use of saving water, and from there a love of photography was born.
Artist Eating Strawberries’ first work under her professional name, was a poem called “Gothic Promise” which captured the eyes of some established artists on the internet in January 2010, which lead to a rapid increase in artistic exposure.
Strawberries, now an established artist, specializes in fine-art alt fashion portrait photography, Gothic and grunge digital photo manipulations, and drawings, along side her poetry and Gothic short stories. She bases her work on her love for the Gothic sub-culture, Music, cinema and theater, and as any artist does, her own life experiences.
Her work has been featured on numerous occasions, including being published in the Earth Monster Initiative Blog, Touched by Fire Art Bog, online magazine; “The Pink Panther” , digitalis magazine and Milk Magazine,.
People and personalities fascinate Strawberries, and she is curious about emotions and memories, and how someone can be so affected by an idea. There is strong focus a lot on people and portraiture because of a fascination with psychology; what people think, what people feel, their secrets, their desires, their hate and their fear.Strawberries’ work has been previously exhibited in many group art shows, “Exhibition 2010” and “Exhibition 2011” in Morwell, Victoria, Australia,“Counterfeits; the end/the beginning” Churchill, Victoria, 2011, “Art takes Times Square” New York, 2012, “The Macquarie Photography prize finalists” Dubbo, 2012 ,“The exquisite forest”, London, 2012“ Snap to Grid”, LACDA (Los Angeles center for digital art), 2013and “Electron saloon”, LACDA (Los Angeles center for digital art), 2013.
Her first solo show was on November 5th 2011, in Briagolong, Victoria, Australia, titled, “Animal Kingdom”, her second solo show was in Febuary 2012, called “Mental Monsters.” A third show in July 2012 utilized the art of leaving behind, with “The Great Australian East Coast Exhibition”.
She has participated in Artists Wanted:Open Call 2010, 3rd Ward: Open Call 2010, Artists Wanted: Exposure 2010, Artists Wanted: Self 2011, 3rd Ward Focus Project 2011, Australian Head On Portrait Prize, Artists Wanted: One Life and Artists Wanted: Exposure 2011, Artists Wanted: Art Takes Times Square 2012 and 2013, The Macquarie Photography prize 2012 and 2013
She uses a 2012 model Pentax K-30, a Nikon D3000, a 2005 model Pentax *ist DL and 2009 model Fujifinepix S8100 fd for her photographs, and Photoshop Elements 7 for her post work.
Strawberries currently resides in Gippsland, rural Victoria, Australia, and has studied a bachelor of visual and media art at Monash University, and a certificate in Greek and Roman mythology from the University of Pennsylvania.

Aye you are correct, it had been a long day, I always find this a disturbing style to write in, kinda about yourself but your not there, but looking in.
