Simone Maynard

'Food & Desire - Conflict II' by Simone Maynard.

The power of the blogworld!
Through a comment left here (thank you) I have just discovered this young Melbourne artist.
The painting above has been selected to be in the running for a prize in portraiture at the Newcastle Region Art Gallery this November.

There are other examples of her work and lots more at her blog which you can find here.


  1. thanks! my favourite part of this is the use of the word 'young'. I was just saying to my partner today how i am the old lady in an upcoming 6 woman show in New York. It's nice to be referred to as young :) I suppose Patti would just laugh. Enjoying your blog. Cheers.

  2. Glad yr enjoying the blog! younger than me anyway!!!
