Chrissie Lloyd

For several years in my 20’s I enjoyed oil painting. Then in 1990 I went back to art working in watercolour, mixed media and acrylic. I studied with Pamela Fairburn, a noted Sydney watercolourist and also with the late Arthur James, an artist of international repute in life drawing. For six years I studied portraiture both in oils and charcoal with renowned portrait artist Yve Close.

I also enjoyed life drawing and sculpture with Alan Somerville for four years. I have attended many workshops and tutorials with well known Australian & New Zealand artists including Bernhardine Mueller (master printmaker) and Patrick Carroll (multi-award winning Australian landscape artist) whose approach in both the physical and spiritual sense has influenced my use of acrylic and the way I “feel and see” the landscape. No matter how widely I travel the Australian landscape has my heart.

I exhibit at Humble House Gallery in Canberra; with the Woodford Bay Group of Artists; at the Royal Easter Show; previously through Judith Salmon of Salmon Galleries in North Sydney; at exhibitions held by Art Societies of which I am a member and other exhibitions in which I am invited to participate including the Hunters Hill Art Exhibition, Waterbrook Greenwich and Waterbrook Yowie Bay. I have been invited to both speak and do demonstrations for Art Societies and for five years I was an invited judge for the Eve Vonwiller Youth Art Prize.

Commissioned works currently hang in private collections in Australia, the UK, USA and New Zealand.
