About Me & Contact Details

Melbourne artist and illustrator, Nadia Turner works in several mediums, including acrylic on wood and canvas, ink and watercolor, paper and textile collage. Her influences stream from many areas, from the art of the surrealists, especially that of Remedios Varo and Leonora Carrington, the Pre-Raphaelites, traditional folk art, various children’s books and of course, ancient myth, symbolism and legends. “I am fascinated by other worlds and other cultures. In my work I am trying to capture a moment in a characters life and evoke a sense of otherworldliness. Just like when you look at an old photograph, I want you to wonder….. who are these creatures?……what worlds do they live in?…and what are their dreams?”


And why the name Wayward Harper?

Well, I’ve played the celtic harp since I was about 13 or so and this was the name I used that just stuck. Music is an integral part of my life and while I haven’t played as much as I’d like over the last few years, this is something I yearn to get back to. So I keep this name as a reminder of who I want to be and where I want to return to in my creative life :)
