Jeannette Dyson – Artist – Paintings

Established Artist Jeanette Dyson’s love of the Western Australian landscape is captured throughout her work. Many of the works depict the Kununurra and Kimberley areas of the north-west of WA where she has frequently resided. The colours and textures of that landscape are rendered in oils, acrylics and often pearl dust, gold dust and ochres found at the site. Jeanette is a highly awarded artist who has held numerous solo and group exhibitions both locally and interstate.
