Panda Philosophy

Tell us about you?
Bernadette is an English Illustrator, Part-time Philosopher and Pianist who moved to Melbourne in 2013. She grew up in a biracial family and was really lucky as a kid to travel and live in Asia and the Middle East for 10 years with her parents and little sister. After successfully managing to avoid learning how to draw digitally for 10 years, 2020 had other ideas and forced Bernadette to sit down and finally pick up her Wacom pen. @Panda_Philosophy are her training wheels. Watch her wobble and then glide.

What influences you?
Alan Watts and Olafur Arnalds. Alan Watts was an alarmingly enlightened British Philosopher from the 1970s whose archive of lectures were a great source of comfort for me in 2020.
What Motivates you as an Artist? 
Panda Philosophy is a visual journey map of my explorations into Taoist philosophy whilst under Melbourne’s Lockdown. I reinterpret the lessons of Taoism into fun relatable drawings of pandas that everyone can enjoy ✨🐼✨
What are you working on at the moment?
I've been exploring my 2 creative languages in Lockdown; Music and Art. Panda Philosophy is the visual half of my experiences. Satellitefingers is the Neo Classical Musical half. ☯️ Follow @satellitefingers for incoming signals ✨🛰🎶
