Lisa Fahey

"I am an artist based in Wollongong, NSW. I grew up here between the mountains and the sea. My passion lies in painting with bright and bold colours and Australian native animals, especially birds, make up a lot of my inspiration. My latest body of work is exploring flora. I like to accentuate the hints of colour I see within my subject matter and love painting with a palette knife and acrylic paints. I add texture to the canvas with deliberate strokes that give the subject matter definition without it always being obvious. I am a full time artist working from my home studio on the south coast of New South Wales.”
