Previously an architect, Narelle is largely a self-taught painter.
Working in acrylic with both palette knife and brush, her works can be distinguished into two main themes, landscape and still life.
Her ‘landscape’ paintings are motivated by a sentimental connection to place.
Narelle’s landscape and townscape paintings are inspired by the contrasting places that she has lived in and travelled to. Her ‘still life’ paintings in a similar way draw on a nostalgic connection to time.
With a keen interest in mid-20th Century design, she often includes evocative ‘vintage’ pieces in her paintings.
Alongside a love for all things botanical, the cut flowers starring in her still life paintings are mostly from her own garden.
The overwhelming theme of all her works though, both still life and landscape, is the celebration and joyful use of colour.
