Leith Semmens

If we haven’t met before I am an artist from Carrickalinga South Australia who specialises in ink or graphite drawings.

Most of my drawing comprise of thousand or millions of tiny circles of diagonal lines to build a picture best viewed from a distance.

Carrickalinga is my favorite place to exist, relax, and be happy.  A tiny isolated community of holiday houses nestled within a secluded cove, long sandy beaches, and sand dunes.  Framed by dramatic sea rock bluffs and rolling farmland hills; truly bliss.

My art has increasingly focused upon the impact of Climate Change and it's effects upon our environment.  It is beginning to show upon this beautiful stretch of coast, and the challenges of preserving our coasts will continue to mount.  

 

An experienced and respected portrait painter and sculptor, including twice selected as the official portrait artist to the President.  However, in the last decade my art practice has evolved to become primarily drawing.   Using  a magnifying glass and a unique technique of quill pen applied inks and graphite, my stylised and sometimes hyper realistic art is often seen across Australia in exhibitions and competitions. My Art is regularly featured in the USA, Canada, UK, France, Spain, Germany, Sweden, India, Singapore, Japan and New Zealand.

 

Master of Visual Arts, Bachelor of Design, Awarded the Queens' Trust of Australia, Awarded the Mendelssohn Award, and Helpmann Academy Award.

 

Twice selected as Official Artist to the President.

Wishing you well and a lovely day.
