Artist and nature lover. Championing her love for light, shape, reflection and nature, Antoinette Ferwerda is a renowned Australian artist largely recognised for producing a bold collection of fine artwork that joyfully explores the geometry of shape inspired from the earth below to the stars above.
Antoinette’s backstory reads like something out of an adventure series. Residing in remote pockets of Papua New Guinea, Darwin, and extended periods of time travelling throughout Europe exploring her family heritage, then settling back in Melbourne for her formative years.
Her signature work is abundant with colour and texture, resulting in a transparent quality. Adaptable to any palette with a diversity of spectrums and mediums. Sun soaked, muted and ethereal, metallic, vibrant or monochromatic.
Antoinette’s themes include abstract and metaphysical interpretations of life and the natural world, fossicking in rock pools, exploring the rolling hills of the countryside both here and abroad, and the magical light of a European summer.
Antoinette's mixed media paintings are produced using the highest quality artisan products and processes.
Professional acrylic polymer paints, oil pastels, inks and layers of hand-cut and hand-painted collage are applied to the highest grade, cotton canvas.
Every original painting is finished with multiple layers of professional art sealant, to fortify, protect and ensure the longevity of your painting.
