Description : Athena was a paid model at The-Art-Room back in 2015. She sat for three saturday afternoon sessions. The linen over hard wood stretcher bars will last a lot longer than canvas bought off the shelf which will tend to warp over time.

I have been painting for about ten years now, I started by attending Life Drawing sessions at The-Art-Room in Footscray, Melbourne.  Then I did some courses such as Drawing for Beginners and Painting for Beginners with Erika Gofton, I ventured into Portrait painting with Celeste Chandler who I love as a teacher and a human being.  I did many other courses and learned and kept growing my art skills.  I did regular Open Studio sessions at the Footrcray Arts Centre with Darian Pullen, as well as with Erika at The-Art-Room, both supported me with various paintings.  My main medium at this early stage was oil on linen, however, I have also tried Pastels, charcoal, ink, acrylic paints, lino-cut printing and paper stuck onto hardwood board.  Thanks for enjoying and loving my art creations.  I am currently ta studnet at RMIT Fine Art and I am focussing on video/moving image as well as sound art.  And I still attend many classes at The Art Room where I investigate painting, portraiture and classical art techniques.  2016 I spent travelling round Australia in my car with a tent and two dogs, wow, what a great way to find yourself and enjoy yourself.  2017 I went overseas with RMIT to Venice Biennale, Berlin, kassel Documenta 14, Paris, and Arles PHotography Festival.  As well I went on my own to Barcelona and Madrid where I saw Picasso's famous Guernica, which is really magnificent.  I am a lucky, lucky person, so get into art, you can do anything and even express your opinions and ideas....
