ABOUT PASCALE

I am a Melbourne portrait artist, painter, illustrator, storyteller and occasional mermaid. I work from my home in the green and leafy artistic suburb of Eltham. I find inspiration in good yarns and small things in the day-to-day, living by “Stories & Memories”. A mother to two young daughters, I exhibit with local art group, Thou Art Mum, an inspiring and supportive network of visual artists who are mothers. 

I love faces and bodies! My portraits and figurative studies are mostly in acrylic paint or graphite. The range of artwork includes paintings, illustrations, prints and fan art, as well as commissioned pieces. Recurring themes in my work are shadows, reflections, tattoos, floral blooms, water, disco, the female body, childhood, colour, and Moorish and Art Deco pattern. 

I also love what lies beneath the faces and bodies! My passion for reading stories about people began in childhood with a big bookshelf full of books. In my art I explore the human condition through empathy, love, emotion, nostalgia and memory. Time, popular culture, music and literature, cultural background, humour and wordplay are all important ingredients of my storytelling.

An advocate for women, I am constantly drawn to the themes of strength and vulnerability in femininity, identifying with “I’m every woman” through my work in a balance between realism and fantasy. An ambassador for Pink Hope, I am also a voice for the Australian breast and ovarian cancer charity which empowers women and their families to take control of their hereditary health through prevention, education and support. To read more of my journey, as well as my relationship with Pink Hope view my Stories

EDUCATION & MEMBERSHIPS

I studied a Bachelor of Arts in French and Fine Art (Major: Paint) at the University of Exeter, south-west England, for four years from 1996 with a placement at the European Academy of Art in Brittany (Ecole Européenne Supérieure d’Art de Bretagne), Rennes, France, in 1998/99. I graduated with Combined Honours in 2000 and completed a BTEC Professional Development Certificate in Interior Design at WAES, London, in the following year, 2000/1. I relocated to Melbourne, Australia, in 2005, became an Australian citizen in 2007, and continued to work in the Interior Design industry until 2017. I joined north-east Melbourne network, Thou Art Mum, as a member-artist in 2013 and Regional Arts Victoria in 2017. I completed a NEIS New Small Business short course at Holmesglen, Melbourne, in 2017.
