Denise Walker: The Artist
Denise is an artist and educator who currently lives in Broome, Western Australia.
Born in Perth in 1966, she immediately felt an artistic passion and by the age of 2 was already doing up to 50 drawings a day! Denise hasn’t stopped since spending many years studying art and holding her first sell out solo exhibition at the age of 22 with 78 pieces, all of which she framed herself, one of her greatest achievements.
Her artwork, although inspired from the spectacular Broome coastline, embodies a powerful soul on an individual journey throughout the heartland of the rugged interior of the Kimberley region.
She travels extensively and works on location using assorted mediums to capture the “soul” of her chosen subject. Her main focus is on the spirit embodied within the landscape. It’s vibrant colours, it’s dynamic energy, and it’s emotional resonance, which is born in vast ancient surroundings, engages the viewer and elicits an amazing personal journey from the audience, moving them emotionally.
Denise has exhibited widely over the past 24 years winning numerous awards. Her work enjoys representation worldwide with various collectors situated throughout USA, UK, NZ, Saudi Arabia and Japan.
