Featured artist Tricia Reust appeared on Colour In Your Life Season Two (2). Read a little bit about the artist here and support our site by joining and watching the episode below.
Tricia Reust is a spectacularly vibrant artist that uses colour without any inhibitions. Letting the idea and the form take shape and then building a story as part of her approach. Tricia is a woman who loves life and also her ability to pass on the great information she has learnt herself over the years.
Born in Sydney, NSW, Tricia lived for twelve years in Michigan USA and now lives on the Redcliffe Peninsula north of Brisbane in Qld.
Tricia exhibits regularly in regional shows and competitions. She is active in the art community, maintains a studio, teaches, judges, and presents workshops. Tricia can’t remember ever not drawing, and works on her art every day, as she can’t not do it. The mixed media process is the vehicle for her to express her belief that we exist to be part of a community and to support one another.
“Hopefully we each individually reach a point where we listen to the echoes and urgings of our spirit and embrace conscious decision making on how we treat each other and the earth. The mingled edges of the mixed media process help illustrate that we are not separate from one another or the earth.” ~ Tricia Reust
Tricia was awarded 1st Place in Portrait at the Pastel Society of Australia Annual Awards 2014 with this work titled Truth Cloak. You can purchase a reproduction print from our store! Truth Cloak also featured in the January 2015 issue of the Australian Artist magazine, with progressive photos of its creation.
