elouise roberts

Elouise Roberts lives and works in Armidale, New South Wales. She has held several solo exhibitions of her landscape paintings and drawings since graduating with a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Newcastle in 2001.

Her further studies in textile design at the Royal Melbourne Institute of Technology influenced her painting style with its strong focus on attention to detail.

Elouise has received a number of awards for her art and design work including the Maitland Tertiary Student Art Prize (2000), New England Art Prize (2002) and the International Dyers and Colourists design competition (Australasian winner 2011).

Roberts' subject matter is predominantly the landscape- dramatic clouds, light through trees, deep shadows, reflections on water and undulating grasses. The New England provides endless inspiration, from its picturesque farmlands to wild gorges. 

Over the years her practice has evolved from semi-abstract and expressive techniques using mixed media, into a more representational style mostly using paints.

Elouise Roberts CV


I wish to communicate a sense of being in the landscape, to capture the atmosphere and light- to distill nature’s beauty and convey a sense of romance, longing and mystery.
