Rosemary Harris-Arnott is inspired by nature and influenced by her life on the land, with her works wild and inspired renderings of the natural world.
The artist – who also paints beautiful found nests – will be showing her works at Riverlee Studio, Winchelsea with fellow artist friends during the 2019 Surf Coast Arts Trail on 10 and 11 August.
“I grew up on a dairy farm, so I’ve always loved being outdoors and painting areas where I’ve ridden horses,” she said. “I’m also inspired by landscapes, such as the grasslands and the clifftops down by the coast, bird nests and the human face”.
Fresh from solo exhibitions in Melbourne and the top honour of Best Painting at the Anglesea Art Show with her oil River Red Gums, Rosemary is excited to make her Arts Trail debut. She has also entered pieces in National Portrait exhibitions, was a semi-finalist in the Moran Prize 2018 and has been selected to show twice at the Victorian Salon des Refuses.
