Deirdre Moran

Artist Statement I was born and grew up on the Gold Coast and very early in life developed an affinity for the ocean. This is evident in my seascapes and fascination with water and light. Throughout my lifelong career as a nurse – I have never lost the passion for painting – in fact it sustained me through many of life’s stressful events! Now, recently retired to Coochiemudlo Island, I am surrounded by a beautiful environment and the bay at…

Artist Statement Our world is a fascinating place. Sitting and trying to capture some of the sights and beautyon paper (or canvas) is an absorbing and challenging endeavour—but I love it. I have been lucky enough to do this in pencil and acrylic (at school), in oil paint and pastels (in Melbourne), and in watercolours since moving to the Tweed/Gold Coast region. From my high school art teachers to Patrick Moss, John Lovett, Greg Allen, Charles Reid and Judith White,…

Christine Earthrowl I began watercolour painting about 11 years ago while working in the bush with my geologist partner in the Northern Territory. I had only lived in towns beforehand and couldn’t believe the beauty of the native bush in particular the colourful and textured bark of the local eucalypts and other native plants. As a way of expressing my wonder and awe I started painting some of these barks and flowers in watercolour to allow others to see and…

I’ve always had a love for Art, which started in my early childhood years with chalk drawings on just about anything, concrete pathways, walls no flat surface was safe. It wasn’t until my senior years at high school when I discovered oil paints that I realised that painting was going to play such a big part in my life.  I started with landscapes and seascapes around the Gold Coast, however with no formal training I relied on the techniques of…

I never tire of nature’s intricate tapestry, tone, colour, texture, light and shade in everything I see. I am also very tactile and enjoy the experience of touch, whether it is a little animal, a bird, fine mosses or massive forest trees, each is a unique experience. I do hope you are able to experience the multi sensory experience I try to achieve in my painting. I began painting in 1980 studying with various tutors over the years in colour…
