Anita Bye

Anitaĉs interest in art (drawing and painting) began in early childhood and continued throughout her years in High School, where a study of fine arts was important to her. She recalls the Čexhibitionč of two of her early paintings in the corridors of the high school. In 1983 her love of painting drew her to attend private art schools, in particular the Melbourne School of Arts. Here her drawing and painting skills improved considerably, She especially enjoyed the classes of Robert Gill, artist and author of ĎRendering with Pen and InkČ, who at that time taught the subjects ČColour and Designč and Č Introduction to Perspectiveč. Plain Air painting further helped her to learn to see.

In the last years she took classes with Ron Reynolds, artist, who has helped her to develop her own style of Ďabstracting realismČ, using strong colours in the paintings. Her paintings are now a mix of geometric and natural shapes in the style of cloisonnisme. She finds subjects in the Australian landscape and elaborates on them exploring them from various angles, fracturing and juxtaposing.

Anita has participated in various group exhibitions, held solo exhibitions and exhibits with the painting group ČMixed Paletteč.

Her paintings have been sold in Australia, Germany, Austria and Switzerland.
