Tricia Reust is a visual artist working in most media and has lived with her family on the Redcliffe Peninsula in Queensland for the past 36 years.
Among many awards, Tricia was awarded 2nd Prize in the 10th International Drawing Biennale in 2019 and won the National Mortimore Prize in 2012; has been a finalist many times in the Bald Archy; recorded two television episodes with Colour in Your Life; and has been published in the Australian Artist and all four “Incite – The Best of International Mixed Media” publications through North Light Books.
Tricia’s second book “Using Chroma Art Materials – Tips and Techniques for Creating Art” is now available, and her revised “Landscape as Story – Directions for Creating Expressive Landscapes” has been released.
Her three instructional DVD’s are available through Pulsar Productions, and she has several videos on art processes, mediums and techniques on YouTube, and through Chroma Australia.
Tricia is a Master Pastellist with the Pastel Society of Australia, and a Life Member of the Redcliffe Art Society. She is a popular workshop presenter and has taught throughout Australia and overseas.
Tricia’s art process increasingly involves presenting layers of story in her images.
Tricia will be working on drawing theory and creating works on three gessoed canvases, one smaller (about 10 by 12 inches or 11 by 14 inches or so) and two larger, at least 24 by 24 or 24 x 30 inches, or so. The process will be to do drawing exercises and create some drawings to use; collage the canvas surfaces and colour on the first two days; and complete the works with drawing on the third day. Drawings can be incorporated both in the collage and drawn directly on to the canvas.
