Aurelie Yeo, Perth born artist and former physiotherapist , is passionate about our natural environment and has found much to inspire her having travelled throughout W A and the N T on numerous painting trips. More recently in 2014 her close proximity to the Indian Ocean has been an inspiration for her 22nd solo exhibition “ The Colour of Water” in which she endeavoured to interpret the many changing moods of the ocean. Water is also a compelling influence and focus in the interior whether it be waterfalls ,creeks or billabongs and they always hold a special significance for her. Her first solo exhibition following the completion of a Diploma in Fine Art (Painting) in 1986 ( which marked the beginning of her painting in a full time capacity) was based on impressions gained during a visit to China . Other solo exhibitions comprised landscapes of both the South West and Kimberley regions and also floral arrangements and still life .She has held 6 exhibitions from 1992 -2002 at the Mulgara Gallery , Ayers Rock where she was also Artist in Residence. In 1998 a major exhibition was held based on an expedition to Antarctica. She has been in 7 joint exhibitions at Rottnest Island and represented in well over 100 invitation exhibitions.
