Watercolours and Botanicals
An exhibition of watercolours featuring the infinite patterns of nature, and the flora and fauna that makes this land we call Australia, unique
Opening by Canberra ABC TV's weather presenter Mark Carmody
Sunday 5 April, 11am
Helen Fitzgerald is an art teacher and botanical artist who has studied in Australia, Austria and Italy. This wide range of influences can be seen in her watercolours that have been enjoyed at the Sydney and Canberra Botanica exhibitions as well as the Royal Horticultural Society (where she won a gold medal) and the Society of Floral Painters, both in the U.K. Helen’s work is prized in corporate and private collections in Australia and overseas.
For this exhibition Helen’s new works include her Patterns series, impressions of nature’s flora and fauna on Japanese ‘Yupo’ paper onto which the watercolour flows, not so much controlled, as guided, to form outstanding and beautiful patterns.
Helen also presents the Australian landscape in her unique impressionistic style, rich in colour and vibrancy, drawing on the array of colours experienced in a variety of natural lights that she has become so well known for as a highly practiced watercolour artist and botanical illustrator.
Helen Fitzgerald’s latest solo exhibition Nature’s Patterns, will be opened by Mark Carmody, Canberra ABC TV’s lively weather presenter and expert horticulturalist who adds a definite gardening flavour to the nightly news.
