From the Palette: Artist Bio

The Art of Deirdre Edwards is situated within a diverse arts community in Broken Hill NSW Australia. As a fulltime artist i now live between my two homes in Broken Hill and Moonta Bay South Australia.

My work as a visual Artist portrays an essence of "self" in relation to my existence in the landscape. I seek to express an inner vision created from memories, thoughts, experiences and the connection I have with my environment. A love of all art has inspired me all my life and within my memories I draw on the obscure details within a subject unifying abstract metaphors with traditional realistic impressions.

Catering for the investor my aim is to ensure works are individual with each painting being unique. The same applies to all my etchings, which are artists proofs, unique states & edition variable etchings. Some screen printing work is catered for in small runs.

Specialising in mixed mediums, My artworks vary to include watercolour, acrylics, inks and oils to achieve a desired effect. Techniques with thin washes against contrasting textures create vibrant imagery reflecting the colours of the region. Supports are varied with techniques being applied to paper, canvas, unprimed canvas and canvas board.

I have won numerous awards and accolades over 40 years of painting and exhibiting.

The sought after style of my paintings has been pursued by collectors nationally and internationally including the Shuniak Private Collection now a public Gallery in Canada .
