David Bromley

"I spent until recently, nearly 2 years making art in a partly outside studio. Having been in a semi tropical, natural environment I find painting butterflies even more important now I’m back in my Melbourne studio. The vibrant city hum and clatter of trams and busy streets, which I also love, has though meant that butterflies don’t visit me as they did in Byron. Fortunately, when I am in the studio, my mind and my brush travels through my imagination and I am in a place my dreams take me!
Through this creative lens, all the characters and subjects in my work can still be portrayed from the garden of my mind".
