Emerging artist Dorothy Davies' work aims to intensify the still life experience by creating a calm and contemplative mood whilst capturing the beauty of transient natural and found objects. Prior to painting, Dorothy has enjoyed an award-winning career in packaging and corporate design. She worked for a number of design firms in Sydney and London, before running her own design practice. Influenced by this background, Dorothy loves to explore and closely observe the natural packaging of fruit, flowers, and household objects - especially traditional Chinese porcelain. Dorothy was recently mentored by Crispin Ackerman and he has aided her in developing the finer points of the still life art form.
