Jeana Castelli

Biography

I was born in the South West town of Donnybrook in 1950 to Italian immigrants. Art and the creative process has always been an integral part of my life. I have participated in exhibitions in Perth and here in the South West including three solo exhibitions in Bunbury. I have also been commissioned to do a number of works. My work has been published in the Sydney based national Art/Edit magazine and also invited to exhibit in the Agora Gallery Chelsea NY. The Australian landscape is a great source of inspiration with it’s ruggedness and richness of colour and serenity. I enjoy experimenting with various techniques, and a variety of mediums. This gives me the freedom to create and look at the landscape from a new perrspective encouraging the viewer to find their own mystery in my work.
