Trudi Hipworth is a self taught artist from Melbourne. From a young age Trudi was always drawing, surrounded by a family of artists. Painting for Trudi is a meditative process and she believes there is a deep connection between nature, art and healing.
Her work is known for her use of vibrant colours and organic textures. Her Butterfly and Puzzle series are clean and deliberate with the focus on colour. With her Minimal Beauty series the opposite is true, layers are built up using impasto, acrylic paint and natural sponges, traditional painting tools are rarely used. Her approach is to explore colour relationships through a chanced harmony which is achieved intuitively. She is inspired by patterns derived from nature, texture and colour relationships.
Trudi has been exhibiting in Melbourne since 2009, participating in numerous group and solo shows. Her works are held in private collections in the United States of America, Ireland and throughout Australia.
