Biography

Trish started painting about 20 years ago and over the years developed her own realist impressionist style, using her preferred oil and acrylic mediums.

She has further refined her skills by attending many workshops and demonstrations by well-known Australian Artists who have given her guidance and inspiration.

She loves to get outdoors at every opportunity to paint the beautiful landscapes surrounding her and enjoys painting trips away with fellow artist friends.

Trish is currently a member of the Oatley 101 Art Society, the Combined Art Societies of Sydney and the Blackheath Art Society and has been exhibiting her work through these Art Societies for several years.

She also exhibits at The Royal Easter Show, Art of Sydney and many smaller exhibitions and has won several awards including; First, Highly Commended, Commended and Finalist. Trish has been very successful at selling her work at various exhibitions and through OzArt Finder.

An exquisite little work”.
