CV Deidre Ogilvie St. Kilda Artist

I have undertaken a number of artistic endeavours over the years, but concentrated on painting in the last 10years. Choosing mentoring over formal art education

,I started with a course at Swinburne, moved on to a group at Albert Park and have for the last 10 years worked with a mentor John Lawry, who has a group which ranges from beginners and students preparing for final year folios to professional artists preparing for exhibitions

I work mainly in oils, watercolours and acrylics but lately have been exploring mixed media under the tutorage of Judy Waters, who has encouraged me to explore colours and textures, experimenting with different techniques and merging these to create original pieces of art.

Living in the UK for several years I worked with a watercolourist in the North of England. Lynn Shaw encouraged me to use a medium that was very unfamiliar to me till then, I soon learned that it has its own joys.

My subjects are influenced by my travels and the photographs that I have taken, recreating some of my favourite scenes.

Lately I have done several commissions of paintings for children’s bedrooms, using images of their favourite things and places

With each new painting I learn more of the excitement that comes from creating something special, with tonal values, colours, composition and light

I am presently, an Art group facilitator at the Mary Keogh Centre Albert Park.
