Marissa Gunning self-portraitWhether it be frogs swimming in milk or bats playing guitar, Marissa Gunning always enjoys the challenge of transforming ideas into characters. The love of drawing began in childhood with finger painting yoghurt, spiral geometry and her father telling her to go count the ants on the back fence. Her European heritage, Illawarra coast life, fascination with bugs and nature and a quirky sense of humour are all entwined and create havoc with her imagination. Marissa spends many moments discovering crazy faces in clouds with her three dynamic daughters.
