Artist Statement

 A warming invitation to art lovers to come and enjoy the garden…

 I am an emerging Australian artist. The works on show are paintings and a large outdoor mosaic inspired by my garden.  My late husband and I loved our garden and we lovingly nurtured it together and took pride in watching it grow into what it is today. It is full of roses, lavender, lisianthus, agapanthus, cherry blossoms, irises, magnolias and fruit trees.

All year round it continues to influence my work with its array of colour and beautiful fragrances. The paintings are developed by firstly letting the colour flow and take its own characteristic, then using different mediums to push or pull colour and form to the foreground, middle ground and background.

Some of the works also feature a three dimensional textural effect created by thick impastos.  I feel they have a beautiful softness about them with a semi abstract composition. All that is missing is the fragrance!

At the opening of my exhibition I will be raffling off one of the paintings in memory of my late husband, Richard Braim, with all proceeds going to Peter MacCallum Cancer Foundation. This will be a great opportunity for someone to purchase a special painting, which will benefit a very important cause.

Exhibition on display until 15th December 2015

Kinross Arts Centre and the Manse Gallery Café; Tel 03 9829 0340

8.30 am until 3.30 pm Monday to Friday
