Our Featured Artists for February
Another new month and we’re excited to present our Featured Artists for February, William Holt, David Alldridge and Sharon Moroney.
Although completely different in their styles, subjects and mediums, what these artists do have in common is their amazing talent. Each highly regarded in the art world and well established in their artistic careers.
William Holt has a Master of Fine Art in Painting from Monash University Melbourne Australia and has a broad range of experience in Painting, Sculpture, Installation Art and Photography.
Over the last 16 years William has had many major solo exhibitions and several group shows in Melbourne and Sydney.
William’s latest collection of Outback and Abstract Pieces is currently on display at “The One Hundredth Gallery” in Southbank, Melbourne. Now a permanent exhibition, this is an ideal way to view William’s art in an open, clean environment, truly allowing his striking and powerful artwork to shine.
For William the process and act of painting is a spontaneous and all consuming instinct where the sheer joy of art in the moment is sought.
David is a realist artist who works mostly in pastels and produces incredibly beautiful landscapes and portraits of people, children, dogs and wildlife.
With nature as David’s inspiration and an eye for unconventional beauty, his work is rich in detail and colour. Much of his work features a myriad of creeping, crawling, hopping and fluttering creatures, but his passion has always been frogs.
He has received numerous awards and his works have been published in the International Contemporary Artists book vol 10, from New York.
David has held many successful solo exhibitions throughout Victoria and several joint exhibitions at the AGRA Gallery in Camberwell.
Sharon’s childhood fascination with drawing cartoons, led her to employment as an animator for an American animation studio, Hanna-Barbera, a division of Warner Bros. She then continued work for a number of years with Burbank Studios, a company specialising in full-length animated feature films for television. Sharon has also performed freelance work for Disney.
She later completed a TAFE course in Design, before gaining entry into the University of Western Sydney to undertake a Visual Arts degree.
Sharon now mostly works in watercolour and graphite. Her main focus is people, finding portraits one of the most challenging and rewarding subjects.
Sharon was accepted as a participating artist into the 2014 ‘Art Journey-Portraits and Figures’ hardcover book, an international publication produced by North Light Books. The book is a collection of portraits by artists chosen from all over the world.
We are very proud to have Sharon, David and William showcasing their work on OzArt Finder and we hope you enjoy viewing their outstanding art.
