Australian Summer

Description : Australian gum leaves are one of my favourite subjects to paint, and I simply can't resist using a free approach to my colour palette, often allowing the weather or my mood to dictate the colours used. The background is left unpainted, so the natural linen fibers show through. The natural brown weave is the perfect backdrop against oranges and pinks and I think this painting really pops! As an artist, I draw inspiration from nature, the seasons, the indigenous landscape, and from Australian artists such as Streeton, McCubbin, Whiteley, Gleeson and the marvelous Russian master Marc Chagall. There are also so many upcoming and emerging Australian artists which continue to inspire me daily. I am a prolific artist artist working full time from my studio in central Victoria, with much of my art being held in private collections around Australia, as well as exhibiting in local galleries and at the Victorian Artists Society in Melbourne. All of my paintings are packed with the greatest care. Best, Eve x

I was born into a highly creative family where live music, book signings and art exhibitions seemed to be a normal part of a child’s everyday life and upbringing. It was only natural that I eventually pick up the palette knife and put pigment to canvas. Today, I live entirely off-grid in a quirky house and garden, with my hubby and two dogs, on rambling acreage of bush, dust and stone. My days are spent at my art studio among gum trees, kookaburras, wallabies, and koalas (and the odd snake!).

You will rarely see me paint a landscape in the traditional sense. Instead, I prefer to get up close and personal with my subject, study its form and colour, its character and its flaws, and translate this impression into something new: cropped, colourful, suggestive, and alive.

So please, sit back, browse through my portfolio, and maybe one of my paintings will find its new home.
