About

Sabina’s 'coastal abstract' paintings are inspired by the coastal lifestyle which Sabina experiences living on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria, Australia. With camera in hand, Sabina's photographic passion of capturing the raw beauty Mother Nature creates over time, rusted metals, peeling paint, anything weathered. All come together once back in the studio, creating a style which brings the viewer an adventure in texture, hints of mixed media, a horizon made with genuine music sheets, typography, and of course numbers; which are inspired from Sabina’s vast manufacturing background, as well as the numbers which she comes across throughout her day.

As with all Sabina’s work, inspiration is key, the palette of hues across her artworks come from her surroundings and the day’s events in which she is creating in. From a walk along the beach, flowers in her garden, to a person’s shirt or a car passing by. The hidden gems of texture are inspired by the netting on a pier, or off the side of a boat which Sabina comes across on her many walks. The music sheets bring Sabina back to her childhood with her Mother, who loved playing the piano, to what we all love most about the beach... the beautiful sound of the waves... life is Sabina’s inspiration. Self taught Sabina has nurtured her independence and artistic freedom and creates spontaneously from within: expressing a feeling, a memory or an impression. Sabina is not restricted by uniform techniques, but is free to express herself fully resulting in pieces that arouse and captivate the viewer.

This free spirit style also embodies Sabina’s one of a kind figurative pastel drawings. Done all by hand, Sabina works the pastel into the paper creating an adventure in colour and energy. The numbers which you will find throughout Sabina's figurative works are based on Sabina’s mood, the energy of the model, and overall feel of the day. As well as numbers, Sabina also enjoys using letters and swirls to represent the energy of life we generate from within, even when standing still. As with all Sabina’s work, inspiration is key, the palette of hues across her figurative works come from Sabina’s drive along the esplanade to life drawing, to a person’s shirt or a prop the model brought in.

Sabina, American born, now lives and creates here on the Mornington Peninsula of Victoria, Australia, as a full time artist. Being an only child to European Immigrants, Sabina's zest for life, adventure, and being yourself, can be experienced through her art.

"My Mother always encouraged me to be my own person;
I share this with you through my art."
