Ria Brenchley lives in the coastal village of Flinders on the Mornington Peninsula. She draws inspiration from her immediate surroundings of farm life and coastal scenery, working mostly in acrylic, but also oil and pastels.
Choice of painting subjects vary: landscapes, seasides, animals and people within these landscapes – often connected by vibrant colour and texture.
Ria’s life on a 35 acre farm overlooking Bass Strait, clearly influences her paintings. She is currently painting a series focussing on cattle of various breeds, depicting their calm solidarity and close family unit. Her finished works take the form of paintings, giclees, prints, art cards, mugs and tea towels.
Ria welcomes visitors to view her paintings and a range of giftware in her beautiful studio amongst cypress trees overlooking the sea. Check her website for opening details www.riabrenchley.com.
