Hi there! Thank you so much for taking the time to visit my website. My name is Gemma Stylz & I was born in Lambeth London In 1982. Currently based in rural NSW, Australia, I have been drawing since I can remember and am passionate about the life and career I have pursued in the arts. I work in a wide range of mediums with preferences in Acrylics and Oils, have an extensive range of work on paper in traditional pencil mediums and use photoshop, procreate and Clip studio to paint in digital mediums, so I am proud to be able to offer a diverse service personally adapted to your specifications.

 

Specialising in figurative illustration, wildlife and portraiture with detailed embellishments, the style of designs across this site have been established from 16 years as a custom tattoo artist, working and studying at seminars in New Zealand, Japan, Canada, the USA, Australia and the UK. After recently owning and operating Great Lakes Studio in NSW, I have semi retired from tattooing to focus on producing fine art and being able to be dedicated to my freelance illustration services.

 

Back in the UK, I completed two Higher National Diplomas in Fine Art and Illustration with merits and distinctions at Northbrook College, graduating in 2006. Current known works and are held in private collections internationally and I thrive in consistently exceeding clients expectations worldwide. 

Gemma Stylz (formerly Pallat) is currently resident artist and proprietor at Great Lakes Studio in NSW Australia, where she is committed to working on new pieces daily and curates regular solo and joint exhibitions.
