Highly acclaimed artist Andrew Hewkin joins us in the latest edition of The Lark Magazine for our Meet the Artist feature.

The Lark Magazine exists as a celebration of creators, from manifold backgrounds and stages of life. In its short life span, The Lark has been most fortunate to feature some very talented artists. Issue 2 of The Lark- A Magazine For Children, proudly features artworks from the following creative beings.
London, United Kingdom.
Andrew Hewkin is a London artist who has been painting for over 40 years. In 1973 Andrew Hewkin won the John Minton Travelling Scholarship, and thus began his deep connection with painting the world he saw as he travelled. Andrew’s creative odyssey has allowed him to experience a stunning diversity of landscapes, cultures and social settings. From London galleries, where he has exhibited consistently since 1974, to remote Islands, colourful urban settings to serene natural landscapes, Andrew is a painter who is always in life. Andrew has been a highly acclaimed artist since early in his career, the breadth of his works profound, with many enlightening the walls of well-known identities. Here is a being who was born to paint, and has dedicated his life to this great love.
Andrew features in our Meet the Artist segment in the current Issue of The Lark Magazine.
Meet the Artist is designed to inspire children who have a calling towards the artistic to follow this path, despite, and because of, a world where the artistic may have fallen in the wake of materialism.
Andrew gave his permission for The Lark Magazine, to feature his painting, Free Flight, and in doing so enlightened our pages as well.

Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.
“Melbourne based artist Zoe Mullins, has developed a practice which looks into the delicate patterns and forms found in nature, in a way which seeks to draw attention to the intricacies and inherent beauty present in our environment and in the internal structures of the organic. Now as a fine artist working predominantly in oils, her style has evolved through experimenting with a variety of mediums, techniques and subject matter. The works place an emphasis on tonality, simplicity and balance and are imbued with the symbolic in their detail of various amalgamations and abstractions of nature. The character of the work lends itself to a transparency of interpretation.
Having complete a Bachelor of Fine Arts and the V.C.A in 2012, Zoe has since exhibited in selected Melbourne Galleries. Her work is also part of several private collections.”

South East Queensland, Australia.
Leonie first began making work in 1993 under the tutelage of the artist Roland Weight. Developing her creative exploration of the world through an academic application, Leonie went on to study at the University of Queensland. She has a First Class Honours Degree in Philosophy, and has conducted Post-graduate research into Aesthetics and The Metaphysics of Form. After a break of ten years, Leonie has resumed making works, and has done so prolifically. Her work centres on the devotional, and covers multitudinous aspects of this fascinating and beautiful subject.
In speaking of her work, Leonie says:
“From a formal perspective, my drawings combine elements of gestural, tonal and contour drawing techniques, using natural marks and figure describing line work.
The human subject, in states of spiritual exaltation, expansion and contraction, has been the primary object of fascination for me. At its most satisfying, I consider art making a devotional practice.
I am interested in drawing as a process for revealing levels of consciousness beyond/beneath conscious awareness. I also view drawing as a means of imbibing information directly from artistic predecessors through, for example, drawing from the masters.
I maintain an energetic art practice in south-east Queensland where I live with my family.”
The Lark was blessed with a devotional work of Leonie’s titled “For the sun must also rise in you” which features alongside The Lark’s History of Storytelling, in Issue 2 of The Lark Magazine.
