Mornington artist Sabina D’Antonio knew she had found her special place when she came to settle by the sea in 2012. This US native has put down her deeply textural and colourful acrylic-based roots to produce art that reflects her connection with the land, sea and skyscape that surrounds her.
She explains: “I’ve just relocated my studio from Milgate Drive in Mornington to within walking distance to the beach. What a wonderful thing to be so close to the water. My mother was always creative and she encouraged me to be that way too. I worked as a manufacturing technician for years until 2010, when I began painting full time. I have a strong focus on combining colour, texture and typography in my abstract work, although I paint figuratively and sometimes use mixed media.”
Whichever medium Sabina chooses to explore, one thing is for sure: this artist’s work emanates an organic aesthetic that soothes, invigorates and inspires the viewer to look out over the horizon to where the soul lives. Her work hangs in galleries from Frankston to Sorrento, but you can visit her new studio to view too. Go to her website to find out more.
