ABOUT DEE CURRAN
I am a largely self-taught, Expressionist Artist, based on Queensland's Sunshine Coast, Australia. Originating from Zimbabwe in Africa, which even after some 20 years away, still has a strong, inherent influence on some of my artwork. I am lucky enough to have lived in several beautiful places in the world and have always celebrated the ethnic 'language' of that land, all the colours, patterns and traditions.
I work totally spontaneously, creating multiple layers, mainly in acrylic, sometimes collage, often in oil and other mixed media on canvas or wood or ever evolving journey of curiosity and experimentation of varying techniques, mediums, colour combinations, and even subject matter, always seeking to convey energy, balance, vibrancy and harmony in my work.
Colour, Pattern and Joy are my mantra, inspiration and motivation to paint beauty in our world.
