Gallery of Shirley Ayers
My love of painting started early in life but I didn’t pursue it until my fourth child went to school. I then joined the Nepean Art society which was my first introduction to oils. It also led to further studies with various tutors and to TAFE to develop more skills and knowledge with the study of a “Diploma of Fine Arts.”
My first love is oils but I also use watercolours, pastels and mixed media, and paint a large variety of subjects from portraits, landscape and still life. Ceramics and sculpture is a second love although not a lot of time to pursue.
I have work displayed in a number of business and private collections in Italy, Japan, Great Britain, Guernsey, France and Australia.
