Skippy The Kangaroo by Kathryn Lee

ARTIST NOTES: 76cms H x 56cms W - Meet Skippy!. Named after the iconic Aussie TV star, 'Skippy the Bush Kangaroo.' The real Skippy was loved by both adults and children around the world for many years, and there was a theme park named after him on Sydney's Northern Beaches. When I saw the photo by David Clode, I knew Skippy had been rediscovered and just had to paint him. Thanks to @insituartroom for the room display. Skippy was created in Watercolour and Gouache in shades of grey, umber, raw sienna, burnt sienna,, green and yellow on Saunders Waterford 638gsm paper

ARTIST BIO

Born in the UK, I am a self-taught artist living in Australia.

I began painting at the start of Covid, having a passion for arts and crafts.

Completing a City and Guilds Textiles Course, I emigrated to Sydney in 1986 - there I discovered ceramics. In 1995 my work was exhibited and sold at the Sydney Art Show, and Sydney stores.

Injury forced a successful change to resin art before discovering and falling in love with watercolour. I completed 16+ online certificated art courses to incrrease my skills, and my work evolved from loose flowing to more detailed work, pet portraits, commissions, alcohol ink, charcoal and pastels.

I draw inspiration from Australian flora and fauna, wildlife around the world, and interesting landscapes. Colour is a source of joy and motivation to me.

My paintings have been accepted into art shows, art competitions and awards. I was selected to participate in The Australian Watercolour Muster 2021, and invited to take part in the 6th Annual INternational Salon of Painting at the Menuinda Schneider Gallery in LA. I have also been a featured guest artist on an art website, and my artworks hang in many private homes. Commissions are welcomed.

My website launched in 2020 https://www.artbykathylee.com and I am on Instagram https://www.instagram.com/klkatlee/

My aim is to bring affordable, original art within reach of the average Australian family, and to encourage children to experience the joy to be found in creativity. See more of my artworks at https://www.artbykathylee.com
