Sherren Comensoli is a self-taught contemporary artist who was raised in north east Victoria & moved to Melbourne in 1991 to attend the Melbourne school of Design (RMIT). She pursued an artistic career in Retail Design & Visual Merchandising (some of which include doing the window displays at David Jones Bourke st, and then retail design for various private clients).
Sherren currently lives in Malvern with her family. Since having 2 children, Sherren’s artistic talent & desire has now found a new outlet which has manifested into her beautiful paintings. Her motivation is driven for a passion to create beautiful living spaces. She is also a part time home staging stylist and uses many of her own paintings to deliver beautiful room settings. Sherren surrounds herself with creative people & has Interior Design friends who also commission her to paint for their own clients (working in Melbourne’s inner east).
‘There is always abstraction in my paintings regardless of the subject. Before I start any painting I am considering the environment or room setting in which it is to be placed. My paintings mostly reflect the Australian landscape – but with a contemporary translation. I like to use many different layers and keep building the painting up slowly until I have something that is substantial & complex, but also restful. My paintings appeal to Interior Designers and their clients. I always carefully consider dimensions, colour palettes and how one painting can be versatile to use in different room settings. This is why my painting style can vary from a whimsical tonal style and colour palette for an elegant setting, to then something very bright, abstract & textured to create a more industrial or minimal feel. I will always be experimental & brave with my painting style. I will always try something new, to keep things versatile, and to set new trends’.
