"A perfect jewel can be revealed by shining light in the darkness" Bernadette Jordan, Artist

Known as the Torchlight Artist, Bernadette Jordan is an internationally exhibiting and selling Australian painter, currently showing in New Orleans, USA & Bayside Melbourne, Victoria, Australia.

An unexpected event gave Bernadette the inspiration for her current ‘Out of the Shadows’ floral series when a cold winter’s storm caused a power blackout in her neighbourhood.

In reaching for the household torch Jordan discovered how magical her flower subjects looked in this light. “The blackout turned out to be a blessing in disguise, the light effect brought out colours and shapes you just don’t see in the daylight.” said Ms Jordan.

Combining her meditation and paintings skills, her intention for every painting is the same - for the viewer to be effected visually, physically and even spiritually and this is a gift she is honoured to be able to share with the world.
