Tree Whispering

This exhibition is a collective portraiture of trees. The works by Marijke Greenway are painted in oils and acrylics, trusting her intuition to let mood and spontaneity run its course.

Marijke is a self taught,  prolific artist living at Pearl Beach on the Central Coast, NSW.  She travels widely throughout Australia, painting 'en plein air' as she goes and then reworks her memories into larger more expressive paintings back home in the studio.
