Deanne Newland is an award-winning Lake Macquarie-based artist whose focus is on the natural landscape, working predominantly in acrylic paint and inks.
She started her professional art career when she moved from Coledale to Swansea Heads opening her art business The Artistic Soul Studio in 2008 after working as a Visual arts teacher at High School for eighteen years.
Her work is an exploration of Australian flora & landscape, the play of sunlight, and her surrounding area. Most of her landscapes are intuitive and evolve as she creates them. She rarely uses a photograph but relies on her memories of places she has been to or knows well.
