Debra Dawes Paintings







I am a little besotted with these paintings by one of Australia's leading abstract artists, Debra Dawes. I love the clean, geometric lines and of course the vibrant colours. I think they would look wonderful mixed with some more traditional still life pieces. I enjoy mixing artwork styles in a home. Collecting and displaying fabulous art is another area where we can express our own unique individual style.

I love abstracts too and these abstract pieces are incredibly happy looking. I like that she uses a lot of pinks in her paintings. I don't see that too often.

Great ideas for colour combinations and interior styling there! I always value the eye for colour which artist can use with such verve! It is a great eye-opener. Take a peek at my blog - I have used (& linked to your blog) the picture of a dear old friend of yours. See if you find him....:)

Hi!

I love that you featured Debra Dawes in your blog. She was actually my lecturer and advisor at Sydney College of the Arts for 3 years. She's just as lovely as her paintings.
