For the month of March, the branch team welcomes the vibrant works of local artist, Bridget Baldwin.
Bridget is an Art & Design Practitioner working with Creative Spaces at River Studios, a converted three level warehouse alongside the Maribyrnong River. Creative Spaces is a program of the ‘City of Melbourne’ Creative City branch.
She gained a Visual Communications Degree in New Zealand over 20 years ago and had worked as a graphic designer since. With an intention to always go back to fine art, this dream became a reality 5 years ago.
Initially painting portraits (finalist in NZ portrait prize) and figurative pieces, her focus has now shifted to more abstracted sea & tides. Her oil painting is inspired by walks on the river and beside the sea in Melbourne. She is also influenced by memories living in a bay beside the sea in New Zealand.
Her current series is inspired by Australian botanicals and beaches and will be on display in the branch until early April.
