Acrylic artist who paints and enjoys the little things in everyday life, because one day we will look back and realise they were the big things.
My inspiration comes from nature, the beach, and everyday scenes of life around us and I strive to convey the way the light picks up ordinary objects and turns them into extraordinary.
Introducing Robyn Gray an artist from Toowoomba,
Queensland. I am an acrylic artist and work in a modern or romantic impressionist style. The subject matter for modern impressionist work is drawn from local scenes and depicted in vivid colours and the subject matter for my romantic impressionist work is gathered from different reference material, with the composition from my imagination. But I am not confined to this style all the time.
How did I get into painting? In my thirties I tried sketching my children when they were watching tv and was pleasantly surprised to see a likeness. I then began taking classes with local artists and loved it! Trying every medium, over about five years I settled on pastels for a while but now am set on acrylics.
I have had a varied career, ranging from office work, merchandising, and later qualifying as a Diversional Therapist and worked in this field for seven years. Now I am enjoying painting most days of the week or if not, thinking of what I can create next.
