Ceramics, Drawing, Painting, Sculpture, Mosaic

Maree Austin is a skilled ceramicist and painter. She is drawn to abstraction in both mediums and takes particular inspiration from the forms and curves found in nature, as well as her internal, emotional landscape. Working from her large bush block in the Sunshine Coast hinterland she absorbs herself in the process of art making. Spontaneous marks and intuitive use of colour, line and form are hallmarks of Maree’s practice.


Maree loves to experiment and incorporates multiple mediums in her work. These include ceramics, painting, drawing, mixed media, collage and mosaic.
