A massive congratulations to Alumni Mentored student Jillian Ridgeway on the sale of yet another painting. Jillian has sold her wonderful painting titled ‘Suns Up’ in acrylic paints on canvas to an ABC Reporter and ex-politician who adore her work so much that they want to see more back at her studio! She has also received two commisions!
Well done Jillian. You can see a photo of her work where it sold in a recent Lorne at the Lions Easter Art Exhibition.
I am a huge fan of Jillian’s work because I know how hard she studied with me over the two years that she was mentored; mostly in the areas of composition. We made sure that she was able to maintain and develop her own unique and quirky style. This is a great example of how you can learn all the rules in our course and then adapt them to stylise your work. Jillian paints the most beautiful, fun, colourful and uplifting images often inspired by her travels and her local environment. You can see more of her work or even visit her studio in Lorne Australia if you are near to where she is.
