From Then Until Now

a brief history of 40+ years

 

 

My artistic wanderings began 1974, when as a single mother, I first began life drawing at the Beaumaris Art Group. Then from around 1985, I began to paint, sell my work, exhibit and participate in art shows.

 

Since then, I have been fortunate to have been awarded over 45 prizes and commendations, and have sold many hundreds of paintings.

 

To date I have had 4 solos, a two man show with another artist, and been in numerous group shows.

 

As many artists do, I have collected works that are either favourites, or just not been out on show elsewhere often, or at all.

 

I am downsizing, and would love some of these to go to new homes where they might be loved as much as I have them.

 

My early life drawings are unframed, and can be purchased, rolled up and taken today. Some have the patina of nearly 40 years, but have stood the test of time and would look great framed with some of the rough edges and light fading left.

 

I love these drawings, and have culled heavily to present, in my opinion, the best I have done.

 

My other works show the directions I have taken over the years. Some are absent, as they are all sold, but there are enough to entertain you today.

 

I began in watercolour in 1985, then moved into acrylics, as my small house and family didn’t need the rich aroma of oil paints.

 

My first solo show in 1990, was set around the fishing world at Bermagui, and was almost a sellout.

 

Then I began a series of animal paintings and kept the few favourites you see here.

 

I also took up pastels, and did animal portrait commissions for many years.

 

I did a series of rhododendrons in pastel around 1998, all have which have sold, bar the one you see here, and one at home.

 

In 2001, I had my studio built and became besotted by oils. You see them here in my rusting junk machinery paintings.

 

Around 1998, I had become intrigued by the possibilities of Photoshop, and spent many evenings with a large ‘How To’ book understanding how to push images around and create new ones.

 

I did a cartooning workshop in Warragul around that time as well. I also took up riding a Harley Davidson, which I really loved. You can see the results of the three combined in my series of biker Xmas cards, and a printed t-shirt.

 

Finally, in 2012, I was entranced by the possibilities of the digital painting program, Artrage, and worked hard to master it. The next year, I was asked by the developers to be a beta tester of their upgrade, and have just completed a second before they release it in early 2017. I have also tutored online via their forum.

 

Of course, I had to find a way to make use of this new skill, so bought a quality printer to print my smaller works for sale at the local Warragul Arts Market. A collection of these are here today.

 

They sold like hotcakes, and it was great fun chatting with everyone, but unfortunately my health took a turn for the worse, and I couldn’t continue. Now back on my feet again, I would love to get back into it again.

 

There are not many digital sections in art shows, but local Hill End had one last year, and I won that with the ‘Mallacoota Eagle’ you see here. It was great to be able to show and sell framed digital works in a more formal situation.

 

Last year I tried scratchboard, and loved that as well. The Ibis you see here is about the 4th I did, and got a highly commended at a Berwick Art show in 2015. I enjoy this as it can be very peaceful scratching away tiny little lines, like embroidery!

 

I plan now to get into portraits in oil, as I have incorporated faces into my life drawing over the years, and now playing around digitally.
