Originally from Gosford NSW, Llewellyn Skye now resides at the Gold Coast, with her young family. She can be found most days, painting in her studio, at the Dust Temple in Currumbin or at her home in Palm Beach. Skye, as she’s known to her friend’s, studied at the National Art School. Upon her graduation in 2005, she was approached by Lorraine Pilgrim Gallery in Southport where she continues to be represented to this day.
Skye exhibits regularly and has over 50 shows to her credit, including exhibitions in both Italy and France. Skye is a truly versatile artist, frequently experimenting with different mediums and styles. Her work is often playful, coloured and emotionally charged. She is inspired by the possibilities and relationships found through colour and her work is always bold and expressive.
‘Over time my work has developed more and more into colour and abstraction. I get really excited about trying new colour palettes and exploring paint with the use of layers and lots of energy. I find that abstraction allows me to be as colourful and as expressive as I can be. I’m inspired in so many ways, my mind is constantly thinking about paint and colour and what I want to paint next.’
