Arwen is a photographer and creative artist from Hobart, Tasmania. While she has worked in various creative modalities, including ceramics, visual arts and dance, nature photography has been her primary mode of artistic expression for the past five years. With photography, she combines her creative ideas with a love of wild places, light and pattern. She seeks to represent emotional responses to place, landscape and natural phenomena, thereby evoking a response in the viewer. Arwen has a particular interest in macro and night photography: both illuminate worlds that we do not often stop to immerse in and appreciate. Through her photographs, she aims to portray the unique beauty of the Tasmanian wilderness and to raise awareness of its need for protection. Arwen recently held a joint exhibition with multi-media artist Andrea Breen titled Celestial Listening (Sidespace Gallery, Salamanca Arts Centre, April 2014) and has had photographs exhibited in various other exhibitions, including the Weld Echo, Love the Tarkine and Kingborough Art Prize. Arwen also works as an arts and play therapist, having graduated with a Masters of Creative Arts Therapy in 2009.
