This piece is definitely in celebration of my new home town Barwon Heads. Where the river meets the ocean is such a magical spot and the colours of the native plants are exquisite. I wanted to capture the breeze in the grasses and I can almost hear the sound of the river moving towards the ocean in this piece.

Artist – Nic Everist 

Nic Everist is a landscape artist based in Geelong. Her work documents her lived experience through the medium of landscape painting, connecting her inner world with her outside surroundings. Nic’s technique of pouring paint onto canvas creates organic marks that replicate the organic formations in nature itself. This element of abstract mark making combined with detailed brushstrokes lending to realism are defining features of her work.

Nic uses her creative practice to unravel personal ideas and stories that are resolved through her explorations in nature and throughout the painting process. She hopes by sharing these inner reflections through the medium of landscape painting, she can connect with others who seek the solace of nature for their own healing.


Home Grown is a show that is nurturing, personable, and proud to be Geelong.
