Landscapes – Seascapes – Mediterranean Scenes – Still Life – Acrylic Painting:
Maria Coelho’s passion for art began after her retirement. Training at the Waverley Art Centre, attending various types of visual art workshops, and with support from an inspirational mentor/art teacher, she made steady progress. Maria mainly works with acrylics in a semi-realistic style to produce landscapes, still-life, seascapes and Mediterranean scenes from favourite photos. She continues to experiment at home and in South Sydney Junior’s Club Art Classes. Maria is a founding member of the Randwick Art Society, as well as an active participant and exhibitor. Art is important to Maria because it’s an interesting way to pass the time and express her creativity. Her favourite Australian artist is Margaret Olley.
