Interests and Personality

BiographyI started painting in 1970 while practising as an Architect. My main inspiration is Nature and the unique landscapes and flora of Australia - the unspoilt countryside, wilderness areas, wetlands, outback deserts and seashores. My paintings not only encapsulate the essential elements, colours and features of a particular place, but also recreate the ambience and the ‘feel’ of being there. I tend to create playful, colourful and inspiring images, which are both optimistic and spiritually uplifting. My aim is to capture the spirit of the Australian continent using contemporary sensibilities. See my web www.ernie-gerzabek.com
