Ferry Park Gallery Artist of the Month

Artist for March is Denise Filby, who describes her work and influences as the following;

“I have lived in the Clarence Valley for over 30 years. I am a member of the Grafton Art Club, the Clock Tower Gallery and Lower Clarence Art and Craft

I had a love of art and craft from an early age, but only began studying the art of painting five years ago. I have always been interested in crafts knitting, crochet and making paper beads.

As an artist I use a variety of mediums, my favourites being acrylics and water colours. I like to capture the beauty in environment, wildlife and mundane objects and places. Different mediums allow me to express different ideas.

I have studied in various mediums at Faye Boyd’s Fine Art School and with various Clarence Valley artists.

I have won awards in the Jacaranda Art Exhibition and Go Art.

The subject matter of each body of work often determines the materials and works.”
