Estelle is a famous multi-awarding winning Australian artist, who started painting at the age of 5 with her mother, who was also an artist. While attending Wollongong University, Estelle started painting abstract pieces, in the style of abstract expressionism, and so her During her varied career, she continued to paint and exhibit.
Estelle lived in Japan, for five years, and exhibited at the Tokyo Metropolitan Art Museum as part of the UNESCO International Friendship Exhibition in 1991. She also started the Tokyo Eki (train station) Exhibition, displaying and selling work in Shinjuku, Ikebukuro and Tokyo ..
Since then she was also involved in group shows in Los Angeles, San Jose, and La Jolla. Back in Australia, she continued to exhibit in solo exhibitions in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and regional areas. Some of her work has also been exhibited in New York, San Francisco and London.
Usually, her work is larger canvases, and are often inspired by hypnagogic states (the state between being awake and asleep) and take non-conventional forms that are designed to challenge artistic symbolism and archetypes.
In 2010 she published her first art book, entitled: "Transience". The second book "Abstraction," is in production and planned for release in late 2022.
This artwork is about creating a painting that has translucent properties with light. The idea is that our emotion have a similar property, they are not fixed and impenetrable but change depending on our perspective. The work is in the style of abstract expressionism.
This artwork is painted on professional-grade canvas stretched and sealed with varnish. The canvas is 95 cm in width by 153 cm in height. The painting wraps around the sides of the stretcher, so the sides are painted in the same style as the surface It does not need a frame, but framing options are available. The painting’s translucent properties are difficult to photograph as it had pearl white synthetic polymer paint that catches the light and looks different from different angles but hopefully the photos give the potential collector and idea .
The artwork was created on the 4th of August, 2022.

To me, art is the most wonderful thing in the world, that we can express our emotions to others in ways that are beyond words. It is in a sense a higher form of communication.
Estelle loves to paint emotional pieces, that beckon the inner part of ourselves. She believes longing and desires that we hold are just under the surface can be released easily using abstraction. It is not what is seen in art but in ourselves, that is art's greatest gift.
