Pale Headed Rosella

Erica Evans

Exhibiting Artist

My life has always been dominated by a love of nature and animals in general. Also the experience of travelling extensively around Australia has left me with a love of all the colours of the many landscapes and the beauty and diversity of the creatures that live in this beautiful country.

I live in the hinterland of the Sunshine Coast. My view of the surrounding landscape is dominated by the tall, green shady trees and I love the majesty of these forests and appreciate the diversity of the flora and birds and creatures that they support.

Birds are my favourite subjects and I am currently working on a series of local birds. I find inspiration from observing birds whether around my home or whilst travelling. Their songs and “busyness” remind me that we all share the common task of survival. I look upon them as “companions” as they are always there, living their lives beside us and I can’t imagine a world without them.

I like to experiment with all mediums but most of my present work is in acrylics on canvas. My subjects have been chosen from my own personal encounters and photographs. In the case of birds, I generally like to paint them as close to real life size as possible and like to experiment with different backgrounds from traditional to a more abstract style depending on how I feel about the painting at the time.

My journey as a painter has led me to continue to strive to develop my skills and I find the constant learning is one of the reasons why I feel making art is so interesting.

In 2009 I completed a Diploma of Fine Art at the TAFE Noosa Campus, have exhibited in group exhibitions and won several awards including Best in Show at the Noosa Regional Gallery Taste of Art Exhibition in 2015.

As an artist my goal is to share my interpretation of the beauty and value of our Australian creatures with the viewer.
