Fee Bissett

An emerging artist based in the Hinterland near the border of NSW and Qld. My work reflects contemporary coastal life, with subjects ranging from landscapes and botanicals, to figurative. I try to represent these subjects freely and am primarily concerned with creating something I consider beautiful or interesting, rather than trying to be overly representational. I use mixed media techniques and processes in multiple connected layers, and allow those materials to inform the direction the work takes. I frequently include collage elements, particularly self-made papers. The finished layers are subtle, sometimes abstracted, and occasionally quirky. My work has been described as ‘dreamy’ or ‘romantic’. Largely self taught, I developed my painting practice over the last decade through attendance at weekly studio classes and artist workshops, and now paint full time. I have participated in a number of group exhibitions and had my first solo exhibition at Wild Canary in Brisbane during 2023 . I subsequently participated in their Xmas exhibition (@wildcanaryart) I have won multiple awards at RQAS and have had success at community art shows such as the Maleny and Gold Coast art shows.
