Bec Winnel | Illustratore

Bec Winnel è un artista ed illustratore commerciale con sede a Melbourne. È nota per i suoi ritratti femminili unici, delicatamente dettagliati.
Il suo lavoro è stato descritto come una reminiscenza delle cartoline vintage vittoriane e i suoi soggetti come anime malinconiche, che iniziano da te attraverso volti belli travestiti.
Sfida i suoi spettatori a non giudicare i suoi soggetti dalla loro bellezza esteriore, ma a guardare nei loro occhi ed oltre. Per provare a vedere la storia più profonda.

Australian artist, etcher, sculptor, writer, editorial cartoonist, scale modeler Norman Alfred William Lindsay (22 February 1879 – 21 November 1969) was one of ten children of Dr and Mrs Charles Lindsay, of Creswick, Victoria. Remarkably, five of their progeny became artists of distinction. He is widely regarded as one of Australia's greatest artists.
From an early age, Norman showed an outstanding ability to draw. He became the principal cartoonist for the Bulletin magazine, fought many controversies against "wowsers", particularly defending his right to paint the figure, wrote novels and children's books including 'The Magic Pudding' and also made ship models and garden sculptures.

Bec Winnel | Fashion

Bec Winnel - Artist, Illustrator and experimenter: "I enjoy creating beautiful and detailed portraits of imaginary women in imaginary worlds that celebrate the feminine spirit.
My 'girls' are often accompanied by elements of nature, fantasy and items from bygone eras.

My colour palette is mostly soft, subdued pastels, and my mediums include pencil, pastel, watercolour and acrylic.
To further enhance the mystery, my girls are often fading into or out of the background, as if they are nearly there, speaking to you from a distant place.

Whilst I love creating my girls, I also enjoying experimenting in all creative forms including abstract painting, exploring colour, texture, pattern and various subject matters".

Trisha Lambi (Australian painter, 1962)

I am an Australian painter born in Warwick, a small country town in Queensland. I was raised on a farm as part of a large, happy family. My earliest memories are of drawing and reading for my maiden aunts when I was about 4 or 5 while my brothers and sisters were having a great time playing outside! I still love to draw and read - the maiden aunts didn't put me off..
Light on form is my inspiration. My latest work represents a fusion of the figurative into landscape using strong lighting and moody palettes to provide dramatic narratives.
After school I started a Bachelor of Visual Arts however the lure of money and independence proved too strong and I joined the workforce.
