Denise’s paintings depict a strong sense of clear vibrant colour, her inspiration stems from a love of Nature and the desire to recreate its beauty.  Birds, lizards, outback Australia and beach scenes all feature in some of her paintings;  she enjoys painting realism as well as the abstracted form.  Denise paints in a variety of media and is never limited in her choice of subject, which included a portrait of the late Peter Brock (signed by Peter).

Some of Denise’s prize winning paintings have featured in Australian Artist Magazine and are  placed in private collections in Australia and overseas.

Easter Competition and Exhibition

The South Coast Pastel Society 2021 Exhibition and Competition is the society’s premier event for the year with artists entering works in four categories: Landscape; Seascape; Flora/Fauna and Still life/Interior. This year’s judge was highly regarded Narooma artist Janet Jones. The winners and runners up in each category will be awarded cash prizes generously provided by the society’s loyal sponsors who have continued to support the society throughout these difficult times.  61 entries were received across the four categories with standards set very high. Judging took place on Thursday 1 April, prior to the exhibition opening the following day.  This year’s “Best in Show” award was won by Margaret Moran for her wonderfully rendered painting “Nature’s Recycling – Nuttley Creek”. The exhibition continues until Sunday 11 April.

The South Coast Pastel Society is a vibrant group of local and regional artists working mainly in pastel – a pure pigment media with centuries of tradition that is just as fresh and relevant today.  The SCPS has been organising quality exhibitions and activities since the 1980’s and offers regular, world class workshops with renowned local, national and international pastel artists.
