Daniel McGovern was born on the North Coast of New South Wales, before moving to the Gold Coast in the mid-90s. Growing up amongst the beauty of the Australian elements, flora and fauna had a strong effect on Daniel's creativity and regard for nature.
But Daniel's lived experience has taken him to places where he has been far removed from his inspirations. Having been removed from inspirations has fuelled in Daniel a love of nature and the creative process. Daniel is pleased to share a unique and passionate view of his creative process.
"This photo was taken in the mountainous region of Springbrook, Gold Coast, as groups of feathered friends gathered for afternoon seed. On reflection, it depicts the often shy crimson rosella posing amongst the foliage. It reminds me that these species occupy the most lush and unspoilt valleys and forests of the region. They echo the words and stories of the way things have been for many generations, coming to me to inspire dreaming and joy, despite the fallibility of life; of me."
