Dutch-born Australian artist Judith Van Heeren has painted and observed the natural world for the past 30 years. Van Heeren lives and works in central Victoria, the land and waters of the Dja Dja Wurrung, this is where she hikes daily, closely observing the changing landscapes and collecting specimens, these specimens are then arranged and painted into imagined landscapes in the half light of dawn or evening, holding both the dark and the light.  

Judith’s painting process is highly intuitive, much like a collaboration and or conversation with nature. Van Heerens interests are in the rich symbolism, stories, history, harmony, transcendence, a timely reminder that the world is one single interconnected organism.
