My style is contemporary whilst firmly rooted in realism. I work in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, and mixed media, and am currently painting in oils. I find that changing and experimenting with mediums keeps me fresh and open to learning. I especially love capturing the human face and figure in oils, and photographing the urban landscape, including the amazing graffiti to be found in Melbourne.

    It is easy to see why your painting is so highly commended! Beautiful light and reflected colour in the shadows, just enough suggestion of body form and a touch of texture! Perfect!! Congratulations Roz!

  • Thanks so much, Mrswillow!
