at Burrinja Cultural Centre on Sunday 5th August

Realist portrait painting by Australian female artists.

Women Painting Women is a major exhibition of portraiture oil painting and features recent works by Sally Ryan (NSW), Megan Roodenrys (SA), Dagmar Cyrulla, Vicki Sullivan, Fiona Bilbrough, Raelene Sharp and Heather Ellis (all VIC).

Giving insights into the relationships between the artists and their sitters (among these Yorta-Yorta soprano Deborah Cheetham, actress Sigrid Thornton, domestic violence campaigner Rosie Batty and labour senator Penny Wong), the works touch on a variety of contemporary themes while revealing personal stories of reward and loss.

Taking its inspiration from the realist painting movement in the United States, the exhibition celebrates the talent of female portrait artists and the women who sit for them, and is the second instalment at Burrinja after its successful show in 2016.

“This exhibition uniquely honours the female spirit – of realist painters and their sitters” – artist Vicki Sullivan

Join us for a live portrait painting demonstration by Vicki Sullivan in the gallery on Sunday 5 August from 11 to 4 pm

MARCH 2018
I’m feeling delighted to be invited by the Victorian artists Society to exhibit three of my Flower paintings at the Melbourne Flower and Garden Show in the Great hall of flowers.
The painting below is Peonies in Spring, h 35cm x w 45cm and is one of the paintings I will be showing.
This was painted from life in my studio, Peonies are one of my favourite flowers and I am trying {with not a lot of success} to grow them in my garden.
