As mentioned earlier, today I am featuring the work of artist in residence at the art school in Olhao, Jude Fleming. http://www.judefleming.com
Like me, Jude is a lover of the natural world and of course animals…..
Jude lives and works in the great Australian outback, and her love of country and the wide open spaces comes through loud and clear in her work and life.
She teaches at the Westwing Studio in Warren, NSW Australia and will be tutoring a course at the Art School in Olhao next month. http://www.artinthealgarve.com
Having spent time with Jude I can see that her creative expression has no beginning or ending – it flows through her.
Jude produced the following four collages based on the Island of Armona. Her work shows the importance and benefit of being immersed into a different environment and culture and how new experiences open up a fresh creative flow….vital and beneficial for any artist.
Large, vibrant collages mounted onto heavy watercolour paper. They are alive.
I will be returning to the School on September 16th for a few days and look forward to seeing much more of Jude’s work.
