Feminist Visual Artist – Paintings, Mixed Media and Etchings

Commission continued

The pace of the process slowed by not drying quickly over winter put me just over half way. At this stage I’ve blocked in each area leaving out the final gestures and touches of line and colour and texture.

Next step is an intensification of elements, more impasto buildup but keeping glazed passages and oil stick lines.

I have been producing oil paintings, mixed media, prints (etching), digital prints and drawings for many years travelling to the Australian outback and overseas for inspiration and further education. My formal education consists of a PhD in painting and a BA in printmaking and my artwork is represented in public and private collections. My purpose and ongoing challenge is to create a gender-balanced and environment-focused iconography within the Western canon of European oil painting. These themes find expression within imagery about time, memory and identity as well as in geomorphology of evolutionary and environmental significance.
