VIV SEARLE | ARTIST'S PROFILE

Born in South Australia in 1955, Vivienne's passion for drawing and painting began at an early age, with childhood memories of hours spent observing, sketching, and recording her surroundings.

Throughout her early career, she experimented with various styles and media: from abstract artwork, to landscape, portrait and still life; dabbling in oil, acrylic and gauche, pastel, charcoal, ink and collage.

Her artistic exploration of such a diversity of media, subject and style has been instrumental in developing and refining her own style: abstract, often rich in colour and pattern. Today she works predominantly with oil and acrylic paints, at times incorporating collaged elements, such as recycled fabrics or paper clippings, into certain pieces.

She has a great appreciation for the work of Ian Fairweather and Dr Irene Amos, and at times has drawn on the techniques of such artists for inspiration. However, if you ask her where her largest source of inspiration comes from, she'll tell you it's in the everyday experiences: past happenings; current observations & emotions; friends, family and home.
