Robyn Gosbell - Contemporary Realist Artist \r\n
Robyn Gosbell’s art comes from her heart and an extremely fertile mind. At an early age she was taught to look, listen and observe all around her. Her love of nature is embedded in her very soul, as is evidenced in her sensitive use and observation of light and shade in her scenic paintings in oil, pastel and acrylic. Her choice of individual subjects is always treated in an exceptional way.\r\n
She has been working professionally for many years, and has been world acclaimed with prizes and commendations. In 2007 she attended the Saci University in Florence where her oil paintings were also awarded distinctions. Her travels to Italy, France, and Europe have influenced her, but she continues to express her deep love for Australia and the unique attributes of its people and landscape. Recent works have captured the magic of the Kimberley and Kakadu and the beautiful beaches and parklands of Sydney. Many of her paintings over the years have found their way into public and private collections all over the world, and her commissions have been prolific and highly desired.\r\n
For many years she has travelled the Australian countryside gaining knowledge of the landscape and its people, cementing them in her mind until she can transfer them to canvas in whatever medium will embellish the true colour and feel of the area. In a recent competition in 2009, having been awarded the major prize for her pastel of the Irish landscape, the judges endorsed their selection and noted her ability to “really convey how she felt about Ireland”.
