About

ABOUT THE ARTIST

Di Cox’s artistic spirit has been shaped by her idyllic childhood growing up on a north Queensland farm and subsequent move to Brisbane to pursue a career in health. Whilst art has always been central to her core, in 2010 she began a path that led her, under the guidance of many Brisbane teachers, to become a respected local artist. Her art celebrates colour, a defining characteristic of her work, and she thrives on the challenge to constantly evolve as an artist.

Giving back to the community is a matter dear to Di’s heart: currently Di is the Secretary for Art West Community Gallery, a group driven to find a creative community space for artists in the Western Suburbs of Brisbane.

ARTIST STATEMENT
"A country girl at heart, I revel in creatively that is not restricted by boundaries. I adore the freedom of semi-abstract work, the ability to respond innately to paint on the canvas, which instinctively evolves into a unique and personal creation."

"Art for me is an experience. I cannot say it any better than American Author Thomas Merton: I love that “…art enables us to find ourselves and lose ourselves at the same time".”
