Hayley June Walker, also known by her street-art name as Sketch, is a Melbourne born painter and street artist based in Australia but regularly travels internationally with her art. Heavily influenced by the urban scene growing up, it has become a very prominent part of her work to date. Fascinated also in the human form, portraiture and playful horizon-panorama, Hayley's psychological linear style and explosive colour use is induced by the fascination to paint from the subconscious mind but also capture imagery both aesthetically pleasing and emotive to the viewer.
Working from Australia, Hayley's canvases and murals can be viewed in Australia, London, Holland, Germany, Brazil and New York.
