Artist Gail Etheredge

Gail Etheredge

Gail is an artist working from her home studio overlooking the ocean at stunning Coalcliff, on the East coast of NSW.

"When people ask me what I paint I find it hard to answer as I often paint in diverse styles and media. I paint in both oils and acrylic and mixed media, I go with what I feel like painting at the time it could be landscapes, both urban and nature or just pure abstraction.

My landscapes are created with many layers and mark-making. I work mainly in my studio taking inspiration from photographs I have taken from around the local area, and on my travel throughout Australia and Overseas."

Gai Etheredge is an expressive contemporary artist. She gains joy from working in a variety of genres and mediums. Her creative work includes painting, drawing and collage on either canvas or paper, working with both oil and acrylic paint, and ink.

Over the years, Gail has attended many workshops and courses to further expand her art practice. She has recently been painting loose expressive landscapes focusing on inspiration from her travels overseas and locally in Australia. After a trip last year to Central Australia, Gail has been working on a series of paintings inspired from her plein air paintings she did whilst on that trip.

Often, Gail uses collage to create works on paper mainly of urban scenes from photographs she has taken when travelling overseas. Collage adds an interesting and varied element to her works. Gail also loves working in pure abstraction, creating work intuitively and spontaneously. She has recently been working on a series of large, vibrant abstract paintings in oils and a series of small works on board. This collection is full of colour and texture.

Gail has exhibited widely in the Illawarra area and has been a finalist in the Kangaroo Valley Art Prize. Last year she became involved with the Northern Illawarra Art Trail and has opened her home studio to the public.

"I believe there are no mistakes in the creative process just opportunities to express ourselves in our own unique way."
