Narelle Mulrooney Artist

Narelle is a practising artist living at Palmwoods on the Sunshine Coast in Queensland.  She has a love of creating and materials and often have several projects on the go at any one time.  Narelle's studio practice is dynamic and always changing.  


In 2016 Narelle completed a Bachelor of Art (Hons.) majoring in Fine Art and Visual Culture from Curtin University in Western Australia. She graduated with high distinction as well as gaining a place on the Curtin University's Vice Chancellor's list. Narelle's thesis discussed the giant Satinay trees found on Fraser Island. I examined the dendrochronology of these ancient trees through sculpture, paper making, drawing, painting, printing, and film. 


Today, Narelle's art practise is multi-disciplinary and usually in series and includes work with a strong design element highlighting the use of colour, light, shade, tone, and value as well as abstract works based on her emotional response to nature and the environment.  Narelle also experiments in sculptural works in clay, and occasionally delves into portraiture in the style of Banksy. 


Narelle usually has a crafty project or two on the go such as woodwork, jewellery, soap making, and paper-making.  Her studio practice uses eco-friendly methodologies, using non-toxic, recycled, reclaimed, and sustainable materials where possible.


Narelle said that her influences are:

  • Thancoupie, an indigenous sculptor and ceramic artist,

  • Banksy, the elusive urban artist, and social commentator, and

  • Maurits Escher, whose mathematical art is a triumph in repetition, geometry, perspective, reflection. symmetry, tessellation, light, and shade.
