I've studied International Relations and Diplomacy, but i'm actually interested in economy and social studies. There is something in art that somehow explains a lot that's happening in the world right now, and i seek to uncover it. Feel free to contact me at nikola.milosevic777@gmail.com

She received her Certificate 4 Visual Arts from Tewantin TAFE, Queensland, in 2013, her Diploma in Visual Arts from the same institution in 2014, and her Advanced Diploma in Visual Arts from Nambour TAFE, Queensland, in 2014. Inspiration comes from life in wilderness, with birds being the favorite. Dots are dominant in Paxton’s work, as well as repetition of patterns and shapes. She has an obsession with dots, and sees them everywhere. The work is about the connecting the artist with the world she inhabits. In the same time, it is her vision of reality and her imagination in action.

Paxton grew up on the Murray River in Mildura, Victoria. Those early days, full of exploration of the banks of the river birthed her adoration for nature. Animals in their natural surroundings were the original inspiration, and still are dominant theme in her artworks. She didn’t start painting until destiny interfered and she moved to Yaroomba Beach, where she finally had enough time to paint. Like with all true artists, first stroke of the brush awakes obsession, and every single piece of Paxton’s work have a part of her embedded deeply inside.
