"ART TO SIMPLY MAKE YOU SMILE"
Hello my name is Simone Wolowiec - here's some background on my love of art in Melbourne, nationally and internationally. Passion for art began for me after retiring as a professional athlete in 2006. I hadn't picked up a paintbrush since I was a kid, but excitement and a curiosity for transforming a blank canvas into an imaginative scene led me to take art classes in my home city of Melbourne, Australia.

My original fine art works are painted in oils on canvas. For illustration works, I use a combination of oils, acrylics and ink on paper. I especially love using oils which are rich in colour and bring vibrancy as well as beautiful pastel tones to my work. Whilst always loving the traditional mediums, I have recently created works digitally to expand on my love of art in Melbourne, enjoying the clean lines and punchy colours that digital technology allows.
The 1940's, 50's and 60's era greatly inspires my work! I particularly love the fashion, design and pop art culture of those times, which encompass my origins of great art in Melbourne. The 50's and 60's to me captures a sense of growing optimism, hopefulness and dreams!
