Long Beach artist Nina Poulton is busy pulling together a selection of her diverse artworks to go on display at the Batemans Bay Library. Nina who is a member of both CABBI (Creative Arts Batemans Bay) and the South Coast Pastel Society credits her early days of travelling the world that led to her artistic career. She said “Travelling has fuelled my desire to express vibrant colour and a diverse range of subject matter.”
Her works range from traditional to contemporary, abstract to quirky. When painting, Nina does not limit herself to one particular style or colour palette. She works across the entire range of mediums such as oil, watercolour, pastel, inks, acrylic, pen and pencil. By using multiple mediums, she is able to confidently explore new approaches to her art.
Whilst Nina is a self taught artist, she has attended numerous workshops with some of Australia’s most respected artists, as well as international artists. This hands on tuition has further developed her skills and desire to learn as much as she can from the masters.
Of her paintings, Nina said “Each of my paintings reflect the moment or the mood at that time.” Nina has exhibited as a solo artist and also taken part in group exhibitions winning numerous awards. Her works have been shown in Canberra, Goulburn, Nowra and Kiama.
Her latest exhibition will be on display at Batemans Bay Library from 6 – 24 March. The public are invited to join Nina at 5.00pm on Thursday 16 March at Batemans Bay Library as she gives a floor talk. She will discuss her exhibition pieces along with the influences that steered her art career.
