About the Artist

vivi1Vivi was born in Melbourne in 1963 and her love for drawing and painting began at an early age.

 She studied science at Monash University and worked in a medical laboratory as a Microbiologist for many years. But it was her proximity to the sea and the natural beauty of the bay-side area that inspired Vivi to reconsider her primary passion and that was to paint.

For the last twenty four years she has focused on her painting, branching out into teaching and mentoring her own classes, both locally and overseas with enplein air workshops.

Vivi enjoys painting a variety of subject matter. In particular, she seeks to capture and trans-fer to the viewer, the serenity and calm found in nature as a contrast to the busy and frenetic pace of everyday life. She also sets time aside weekly to experiment with different media so as to fully push her creative boundaries and grow as an artist.

She mentors and teaches watercolour, acrylic and oil painting classes at Brighton Art Society and privately at a beach side studio in Beaumaris. Vivi is also involved with running work-shops and demonstrations with many art groups throughout Victoria.

In 2006, Vivi was accepted as a full member of the Australian Guild of Realist Artists, (Agra), where she was also involved as a councillor with a keen interest in arranging forums to inspire current and budding artists. In 2018 she was awarded a guild fellowship from Agra in recognition of a consistently high standard of work. Vivi is also a member of the Australian Water-colour Society, the Victorian Artists Society and the Melbourne Society Of Women Painters and Sculptors, (MSWPS).
