Petra Meikle de Vlas was born and raised in country Victoria, but now calls Tropical North Queensland home, where she creates mixed media works inspired by the waters of the Great Barrier Reef.
Rarely following conventional art methods, in addition to paint brushes, Petra uses her hands, air guns, rods, blow torch, and gravity. Typically working in large formats, she “sculpts” the paintings first, starting with a hardy wooden board upon which she layers various materials to create a very textural, 3 dimensional feel. The texture is the reef, rocks or land mass, the water is the liquid paint, the use of water spray bottle is the force of nature like rain, hairdryer is the wind, blowtorch is the sun, the gravity (tilting the board this way and that) is the tide, forever experimenting, forever learning.
Petra’s work represents the results of mixing media, with chemistry between pigments creating dynamic compositions as they attract and repel, resulting in intricate formations.
Her ocean art has been selected to be featured on Australian TV shows such as The Block, House Rules, and Love it or List it.
