About

Clare Brodie balances her studio time with mediative walks in her local bush parks. In this setting, she draws a sense of peace as she deciphers the complexities of the bush, and her life. Her paintings reflect her emotional experiences: she creates order and harmony by the use of reduced saturated colour schemes in striking combinations. Scale and placement create semi-abstract work which captures moments in time.
