Rose Morrison

This week Collate Culture is featuring the work of Rose Morrison.  This Sydney artist and illustrator paints predominantly oil on canvas portraits. Rose has painted a cohesive collection of fun and playful works.  Her paintings are contemporary but also have a sense of nostalgia, as she draws inspiration from iconic designs and fashion from the past.  Rose generously blogs about, and provides “work in progress” images documenting the evolution of her paintings.   See some of her collection below.

Michelle Lee

There seems to be a theme lately at Collate Culture…  a slight obsession with mixed medium work!  Adelaide artist Michelle Lee features this week and her pieces are another fine example of what can be achieved with the perfect combination of line, form and colour.  Using layering techniques, Michelle works with a variety of mediums, including charcoal, acrylic, pencil, pastel and pen to create her pieces.  Some works from her 2015 collection are pictured below.
