My name is Geraldine Gustavino and I was born in Gibraltar, The Rock of Gibraltar is located on the southern tip of Spain and is a small British colony.
Art has always been a part of who I am. I am very fortunate to have been able to get involved with painting and drawing at a very early age. Throughout my school years I was always in one way or another involved with art, and entered local art competitions, which I was quite successful in. When I completed high school, I went on to study at Canterbury Art School in England, where I did my foundation course in art and design. Shortly after I met my husband and in 1994 we immigrated to Australia. By then we had a young child and soon after a second, so art was unfortunately put on the back burner whilst I concentrated on being a mum and working full time. But art was always at the back of my mind and after what seemed like an eternity I was very fortunate to meet a great group of likeminded ladies. I attended painting classes with them and soon we all formed a close friendship. In November 2015, I exhibited at my first exhibition in Australia with two other very talented artists. Our Picturesque exhibition held at Moving Art Studio in Fremantle was very successful. I have also exhibited at the Amherst Library in Sept 2016 as a solo artist and with the Painters Circle in Nov 2016. In Jan 2017, I had my second solo exhibition, Colour Medley at The Agonis in Gosnells. Art gets me excited and when I paint it is just me, the canvas, and feelings each stroke of colour makes me experience. To everyone who says, I can’t paint, I would like to encourage you to just take a canvas, colour and let yourself be lost in the magic you feel when you let yourself go. Enjoy the journey.
You can find more of my art on my Facebook Page - Geraldine Gustavino Art.
I do alternative Sat classes at the Arthouse and work on commissions.
