from the plains

Maree Kelly is a landscape painter from Gunnedah in north western NSW. The landscape of the Namoi and Mooki floodplains encompass rich tracts of farming country, ringed by rocky outcrops and low woodland forests. This scenery is a constant inspiration.

Maree uses various media and techniques in her work, including oils, encaustic and oil pastels on canvas, as well as mixed media works on paper. Her subject matter is the ever changing landscape – the harshness of the colours in times of drought, the lush new growth after rain, the extreme seasons and weather patterns and even different times of the day.
