ARTIST BIO

Painting CV for Greer Allica

\r\n

 

\r\n

Creative expression through painting and writing has been an important part of Greer’s life and a source of joy and discovery. ‘Art’ has been the medium to interpret her experiences, express her feelings and share her ideas. The aim with all her work has been to become freer and more heart-centred. This approach has resulted in works full of passion and movement.

\r\n

 

\r\n

Greer turned to painting in the 1980’s, as a complement to her writing (4 books translated in seven different languages; poetry; short stories). She attended many classes and workshops to develop skills in watercolour and also life drawing, using charcoal, pastel and paint. Over the years she experimented with different mixed media and collage, abstract acrylics, and more recently has explored the medium of printmaking under the direction of Billy Nye and various other teachers.

\r\n

Her painting career has included many mentors – Anthony Prout, Stephen Leadbeater, Ron Ranson, Rob Sinclair, Rodney Simmons, Margaret Cowling, Caroline Graley, Cathy Hamilton and Susan Palmer – but her primary motivation has been to find her unique inner voice and to express it through form. She is currently a member of the Peninsula Studio Trail, has held open studio weekends and exhibited with the group at the Peninsula Community Hall in Mornington.

Her popular series, “art originals features individual hand painted greeting cards with each card being an original art piece. No design is repeated, no card is printed.  The card can be framed or given as a special gift. It was from these art originals that 50 paintings were taken by Penguin to form the basis for Greer’s Meditation Cards, which were published in 2004.
