Award winning Australian artist Meredith Howse was born in NT, Australia. Growing up in many NSW country towns and graduating from UTS in 1991, with a love of world travel influences her art to this day.

Meredith resides in sunny Queensland, working from her home studio. Meredith uses professional artist quality oil and acrylic colours and canvas.

In 2016 Meredith set out to follow the Brisbane River from its beginnings at Mt Stanley to the end at Moreton Bay, the result was a successful exhibition of 30 paintings.

In 2018, a large 90 work solo exhibition called Sublime Landscapes exhibited at the Lockyer Valley Regional Gallery, Queensland. “Inspired by the beauty of landscapes, I try to give artworks a dramatic feel, drawing the viewer into the painting. I want you to feel you are within the painting and feel the cool depths, the power charge of a incoming storm, the warmth of the sun, or the salt in the ocean air”

In 2019 Meredith completed a series of abstract paintings inspired by her childhood fascination with the colour and opalescence of Australian Opals. It was during this time, Meredith coined the words ‘Australian Freestyle’ to describe her painting style. Large, free flowing brushstrokes on large canvas, full of movement and feeling.

2020 the year of Covid 19 pandemic, Meredith continued to paint in lockdown surrounded by immediate family. This led to a period of retreat and rethinking. Motivating factors changed, more old memories returned. A grateful appreciation of all the small pleasures in life, was so much more powerful and meaningful. It evolved into a new series of abstract landscapes called The Colours of Texas series.
