Bobbi McCain has been working in pyrography for six years and lives in the Margaret River region of Western Australia. She mainly draws inspiration from nature but during the past year she has been studying the art of tattooing, and now her style is evolving again, which it continuously has, and which she feels art should do, if you feel the pull. Bobbi mainly likes to use the stunning local woods, and sources wood such as marri and tuart. She says that readily available wood like ply, chopping boards, wooden spoons and keepsakes can be a great starting point as a canvas for creative designs. www.afyredesign.com
