Jodie Fiala is an Australian illustrator. 

Drawing inspirations from nature and the female form, she creates delicately rendered portraits of ethereal females floating in tranquil spaces of flora and fauna. She is stirred by the botanical details she finds in the Tasmanian wilderness where she now lives and works.

Growing up in a family of mixed heritage, rich in inspiration and culture instilled in her an appreciation and fascination for Chinese painting and its traditional aesthetics, which has influenced her intricate style and mediums she works with today.

With every subject she creates she seeks not to objectify but rather empower through beauty and strength.

After completing a Bachelor of Visual Arts degree at Monash University in Melbourne (Painting Major), she became a freelance illustrator several years later splitting her time doing private commissions, logo designs for small businesses and growing her portfolio.
