"Growing up on farms I was always intimately connected to the landscape and life cycles. I liked nothing better than being alone in the paddocks in which we raised our sheep completely immersed in the landscape. My parents were (and still are) big on self-sufficiency which meant my mother had a massive veggie patch to feed the six of us. A childhood spent in close proximity to nature with an abundant garden has had an ongoing influence on thematic concerns and interests in my studio practice. I continue to find enormous inspiration in the natural world, whether it be the shape of a flower, the lines of mountain range, or the busyness and energy to be found in a spring suburban garden. I like to create work that quietly celebrates our natural world."
Greta has a diverse arts practice, working across portraiture, still life, landscape and abstraction genres. A prolific artist, she enjoys using acrylic, oils, inks, pens, oil pastels, pastels, watercolour, charcoal and graphite.
Central to her practice is the exploration of human psychological responses to nature using the physicality of paint. With over 20 years experience, Greta has a very thorough understanding of formal art elements, techniques, and art history resulting in highly resolved artworks with multiple meanings. Colour and brushwork is expressively used to convey Greta's love and fascination with our environment, resulting in works with a rich surface.
Greta's work has been exhibited frequently in group and solo shows, and her work has been consistently collected by discerning buyers as clients enjoy her bright and energetic paintings.
