Artist, Susan McAvoy has been painting for more than 20 years.
She started off painting landscapes and coastal scenes in oils as well as creating many collages and works of art
using mixed media.
More recently she has been painting using acrylic mediums to create large blooms on canvas of peonies and roses greatly inspired by her love of nature and her garden at Warncoort where she grows many of her favourite flowers.
Her work involves mixing mediums with her paints to achieve vibrant colours and to gently blend petals creating lots
of light and softness to her flowers.
On choosing the right subjects; she looks for interesting textures and angles of flowers; capturing lots of light and depth of colours.
When Springtime comes around every year there are so many ideas in the garden and not enough time to paint them all.
Susan has sold and exhibited her work in the Geelong and Ballarat regions as well as at local exhibitions
and artists’ trails in the Otways and Surf Coast.
