About Heather Browne

Art Profile. I was born in East Melbourne but spent most of my childhood and early adulthood in the Mildura area. My parents had several paintings in our home done by my father’s great uncle Robert Buchan Nisbet (1857 – 1942) a Scottish artist who had paintings displayed in galleries in the United Kingdom and Europe. These paintings had been brought out to Australia by my grandparents and the family was very proud of them. I was very taken with these paintings as a child which are mainly English landscapes and decided when I was quite young that I too wanted to paint. However my career path took me in another direction for many years and it wasn’t until my children were at school that I began to paint, first attending a watercolour class in Melbourne. Later, after a period of living in the United Kingdom for several years and visiting the world famous galleries both there in in Europe that I became keen to learn more about art and painting. I gathered art books and magazines, visited local exhibitions and looked at tutorials online. I have now been attending art classes for several years experimenting with different methods and mediums. When working in oils I usually first do a quick outline in acrylics and when I am satisfied with this complete the painting by building up layers in oils. I love the way the oils merge and blend into each other creating endless different hues and values. My choice of subjects for painting is varied as I explore my creative expression and make use of colour, light and shade. Recently I have begun using watercolours again and I am enjoying rediscovering the beauty of this medium pushing the watercolour to its limits and incorporating gouache, crayon, collage and ink to the painting.
