Artist donates large oil painting of Long Beach to Australian Theatre Company (ATC) in LA for their live auction at the Annual Gala October 1, 2016
I was inspired to help the ATC build for the future because of her family’s history on stage and screen in Los Angeles. The films that sprung from their time inspire us and the theatre is the place where we can play. The ‘play’ has evolved into many things, not just entertainment but thought provoking drama, psychological exploration, high art and more.
There must always be live theatre!
I have been exhibiting for over 30 years. My paintings and sculptures have won a number of prizes and been a finalist in the Fleurieu Art Prize, the Blake prize, Sculpture by the Sea in Bondi, the Royal Academy Summer Exhibition in London and exhibited at art fairs in London and throughout Australia. Over one hundred and twenty of my paintings have sold in the last three years.
My inspiration is drawn from the natural world.
I am essentially a Post Impressionist artist in the era of global warming. Inspired by the innate beauty of life and the sea.
The ATC has been working tirelessly over the years to shine a light on Australian arts in the USA, providing opportunities for Australian actors and actresses, directors, producers, writers and crew to showcase their talents. My son, Laurence Fuller, is a very active member of the Australian arts community in Los Angeles, another reason I felt so drawn to support this wonderful artistic cause.
The painting I donated was created for an episode of the TV program “Put Some Colour in Your Life” which can be viewed on YouTube follow the link here to see the painting in progress.
