Tell us about you “In my younger years, you can always see a pencil in my hand for drawing since 1974. Simply loving art and would quite often win certificates in our local Show Society, in the art pavilion. Growing up in a small country town on the South Coast of NSW, the ocean was my sanctuary to recreate on canvas. So, after purchasing my first set of oil paints in my teens, it was just natural for me to paint a seascape. Experimenting with texture and colours, till reaching the desired effect were all natural to me”.

“These days, after having a break from painting, due to work and family, I now have the time to immerse myself in my passion.  Being self-taught, my painting style has evolved and is more detailed and precise now.  Constantly looking for depth perception and shadows in my artwork to give it that three-dimensional feel”.

What are your inspirations and future aspiration for the next coming years “My inspiration for my painting is still the ocean, with its ever-changing colour, power and constant movement.  In recent years, there has been a move towards painting Rainforests while loving the richness and depth that can be obtained in looking through the foliage and the shadows cast by the trees, gives such depth to the picture.  My painting takes me to another world and that is my desire for the viewer also, to give them a small slice of paradise away from reality”.

“My goal for next year is to concentrate on larger wave paintings and get a collection together for an exhibition. There are currently three art students regularly inspire me to teach and pass on my knowledge so they too can be true to their talents.  Each one bringing with them a different style and a desire for varied themes”.

Kelly Mathews

Tell us about you “As a child being very creative was no stranger to me in with creating things out of clay to progressing to make sculptures at the age of 15. I then progressed into stretching and drawing by a correspondence course. Painting came next and I evolved with my artworks.Being a self taught artist I have created my own style of techniques with paint and tools. The use of my vivid imagination to create my very original artworks are true inspiration for others. The experience of being an artist is a very natural part of who I am. To express my imagination on canvas sets me free” says Kelly.
