During my development as an artist over the past twenty years, I have come to understand my art-making process as both an exploration of medium, and as a vehicle for self-discovery.
Densely layered and visually dramatic paintings, larger-than-life drawings, and multimedia works all combine to illustrate the spirit and necessity of art making in my life.
My art studies include a Diploma of Visual Arts (Swinburne TAFE) and a Bachelor of Visual Arts ( La Trobe University), where I was included on the Dean’s Honour List in my first year there. I has also studied Transpersonal Art Therapy with Phoenix Institute (Melbourne), and hold a 200 hour yoga teaching certificate from the Australasian Yoga Institute.
I have held many solo and group exhibitions since 2005. I have also been a finalist in many art prizes, including the Stanthorpe Art Prize, the Swan Hill Drawing and Print prize, the Clifton Art Prize and the Susan Moorhead Art Award.
Currently I am developing new large scale drawings and small oil paintings of surreal worlds, fulltime from my regional Victorian studio.
“Connie’s work has an energy that is deeply apparent, with her story-telling existing in a harmonious balance between texture, form and colour.” – A.Locke.
