about trish

Trish Crampton is a Sydney based painter and a graduate of Sydney College of the Arts where she attained a Bachelor of Visual Arts in Printmaking. Since graduating, Trish has exhibited in solo shows, many group exhibitions and been a finalist in the Kings School Art Prize.

" I love painting vessels and still life vanitas. Inspired by Italian artist, Morandi and his quiet, contemplative still life paintings, I produce calm, monochromatic images. My work space: ‘Studio 9’ is in our home, a 130 year old sandstone cottage in Sydney. It is filled with a beautiful collection of items + curios, the reference point for my paintings. They all have their own personalities and quirks. Grouped together in a still life composition, they create a dynamic dialogue between the objects + with the viewer. I hope that my work brings both joy + calmness to the audience and the space in which they hang."

Dear Trish, ‘THANK YOU’ for your time, patience and encouragement at the workshop last Wednesday. Both Elizabeth and I loved it and we had such a fun day! I left inspired to keep trying and experimenting to find if I have any creative talent lurking! Thank you for a wonderful day.
