Ingrid Windram – Artist – Paintings
Ingrid Windram Artist Statement:
Light colour and texture live exuberantly in my artistic world.
Nature is the inspiration that I draw from, expanding on the elements to create the essence of the subject.
I set up my Studio in the Kimberley in 1992 and immersed myself in this vibrant landscape, captivated by the diversity of this Ancient Country with Red Escarpments, Wetlands and Boab trees
The mediums that I most like to work with are Acrylics on Rag Paper or Canvas, also Charcoal for which I have a passion, as I find it an expressive medium that I like to use to extend the character or mood.
Acrylics offer me the opportunity to capture translucency in light at certain times of day and when I need texture to express an idea, they work well for me, offering a great range of vibrant colours.
I inherently seek to translate the essence of the landscape to my canvas.
