Artist CV

Antoinette Ferwerda is a mother, a gallery owner and an Australian artist known for creating bold artworks with a masterful use of colour and texture. After a rich journey with many twists and turns – studying visual communication, working in the pharmaceutical industry, dipping her toes into the fashion world – she now runs her eponymous Brighton gallery and creates an inspiring output of original artworks. Using her signature collage techniques and captivating eye for colour, her work explores abstract and metaphysical interpretations of the natural world and the wide range of life forms that call it home.
