Working in traditional watercolour and contemporary mixed-media techniques, Ingrid’s practice explores intrinsic responses to landscape. Her narrative examines innate connection to terrain and storyline, largely informed by responses to her own surroundings and personal history.
Based in Northern Sydney, surrounding bushland compels its force into Ingrid’s studio. Painting en plein air brings freshness and immediacy to her work, characterised by a light touch and fluidity of form that is finished with careful and astute details. Using a quintessentially Australian palette, of eucalyptus, grey/blue indigo, olive greens, sunburnt grey/sepia and copper highlights – her forms create ambiguous landscapes and fragmented perspectives. The meditative rhythms of her compositions are played out in detail, drawn in and out of focus from observation and recollection.
Ingrid’s painting career was launched at Saint Cloche by winning the inaugural Little Things Art Prize in 2015. Since then she has developed a committed and vigorous art practice, with a solid exhibition schedule, as well as facilitating collaborative community arts projects with a focus on engaging with the Australian landscape. Her work has been selected for art prizes across Australia and privately commissioned installations.
