Based in the vibrant centre of Hawksburn Village in Melbourne/Naarm, her light-filled studio overlooks the city, and is filled with the hum of life and human activity that drifts in through the windows from below. She is currently working towards her next solo exhibition at Handmark Gallery, Hobart in November, which will present artworks that explore the energy and interplay between the human and natural world.
“The studio is a haven for the genesis of ideas. There’s an energy that suffuses the air: the smell of paint and turpentine, and the sound of music and voices filtering up from the street elicits feelings of excitement as I take my works from the point of inception through an evolutionary process defined by vivid colour.” – Anna Fitzpatrick
