Iain Tonkin -

An Australian, self-taught mixed media artist, born in South Australia in 1981.

Growing up, I lived in Western Australia, Queensland and Papua New Guinea.

My art journey started in 1988. The first artwork I can recall creating was on the outside wall of a portable classroom at my school which was titled “Rural-Mural”.

The media I currently work in includes acrylic paint and pastels. My main interests lie in community art projects.

Current projects include: Communities in Action, for Charles Sturt Council.
