LAURA LUKE - ILLUSTRATOR
"The ocean has encapsulated me with her rhythmic flow, I find myself in awe of her restorative touch that gifts me with the courage to boldly waltz the earth with an open heart.
Growing up as a curious little detective, I was eagerly drawn to the rock pools of my hometown. Peering into the rippled windows, I was captivated by the intricate existence that seemed to dance so effortlessly below the surface.
I longed to join this dance…"
Positive Change for Marine Life is incredibly excited to introduce our first Collaborative Artist, Laura Luke. Laura resides in Byron Bay and is an incredible illustrator who will be supporting us through the creation of limited edition artworks specially commissioned by Positive Change for Marine Life. All one-off pieces will have limited edition prints numbered and signed by Laura for release via this website. Proceeds will go toward helping us to continue our vital work in Australia and internationally.
"My visual commentary portrays my profound fascination for the human condition whilst fueling my sense of connectedness to others and the natural world. The beautiful creatures that roam our earth are my central focus of exploration. I illustrate animals to personify and illuminate the very nature of human existence."
"I believe art can play a vital role in conservation and activism through its power to evoke curiosity and engage society with political and cultural dimensions which challenge the status quo.
I feel blessed to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Positive Change for Marine Life to form a collective narrative. Their vision for marine conservation and a sustainable future goes beyond their passion; it’s a platform for change that whole-heartedly embodies their core beliefs by providing accessible information to educate and empower the greater community.
I believe in Positive Change for Marine Life and the human capacity to create positive change as we strive toward a more sustainable future."
