Welcome to Barbra Elvin Art:
It's great to have the chance to share with you about my journey in Art.
In these pages you can see my most recent works as well as just some of my earlier ones.
Briefly – I have lived in Cleveland, Queensland since 1996 after moving here from Lake Macquarie near Newcastle N.S.W.
I trained at the Newcastle Art School and gained my Diploma of Art and Post-Graduate Degree in Painting there in the early '80's having previously been a Graphic Artist working with local Newspapers and Advertising Agencies.
I paint in a variety of mediums, acrylics, oils and pastels and use the landscape to draw inspiration from for my spiritually influenced works. For the past few years I have concentrated on Series Works about my life's journey – this really started when I commenced some paintings about my childhood which I entitled "My Father is the Gardener". The latest paintings I have been working on for about two years I have called "Landscapes of Spiritual Journeying"
I hope you enjoy looking through my website and I would invite you to send me some feedback about my work.
For enquiries about purchasing works, please see my details on the contact page and availability and price details are to be found under the photos of paintings in the gallery.
