Watercolor by Art Alla
My name is Alla. I am an artist living on the beautiful Gold Coast, Australia.
I was born and raised in Europe where I spent four years at Art School learning the basics of academic drawing, painting, sculpture and history of Fine Art, followed by University where I was awarded a Bachelor of Fine Art degree.
My passion for art started in early childhood when I would draw, paint and create things at every opportunity.
I’ve been blessed by meeting some very talented teachers who worked with me to bring my childhood dream of becoming an artist to life.
I work with many media and techniques including oil, acrylic, gouache and batik – but my real passion and favourite is watercolour. Water based technique is not static; movement and fluidity are its hallmarks and as an artist I can play with the colours and water to generate emotion and reaction in the viewers of my work. Watercolour has an ability to produce unpredictable results that often take me and admirers of my work by surprise. With watercolour I can really express the true depth of feeling and emotion that comes from being an artist. The pleasure I gain from this type of creative work is truly one of the main sources of my happiness.
My paintings and drawings are attempts to capture the beauty of moments I have observed, imagined or experienced in daily life. My challenge is then to portray that experience on paper or canvas.
I’m a regular participant in local and international art exhibitions and competitions. Multiple awards, significant amounts of positive feedback and praise for my work are wonderful confidence boosters.
I’m very proud to know my paintings are highly regarded and are being added to private collections around the world including Australia, England, Canada, America, Japan and Germany.
