Last updated June 17, 2024


Drawing is central to Pike’s practice. Studying a Painting and Drawing Major at the College of Fine Arts (now UNSW Art & Design), she focused primarily on drawing, but the realities of the local market led her to develop painting.  She loves the joy of drawing, and exploring the ‘poetic dimensions’ of paper and a variety of materials – pen, crayon, gouache and texta.
