Growing up in the Wide Bay region, Antonia has always loved to paint, draw and write – activities which both her parents prized and encouraged.
She remembers a childhood that was carefree and idyllic, and a beach landscape which has continued to provide inspiration for her sensuous figurative works and light filled contemplative still life pieces.
Antonia studied Fine Art at the Queensland College of Art in Brisbane and then completed a teaching degree.
Since moving to the Tablelands, Antonia has worked as a studio artist and artist’s model and retrained to become a qualified Interior Designer. She’s worked for over twelve years as a colour consultant in the flooring industry. She paints exclusively in pastel. She has held multiple exhibitions of her work on the Tablelands.
