Artist's Biography


Bronwen Vaughan-Evans received her Masters of Arts in Fine Arts in 1995 from the University of Natal, Pietermaritzburg, South Africa. She obtained her Higher Diploma in Education in 1998 from the University of South Africa.

Vaughan-Evans’ work is created using a process that she developed over many years. The technique involves the layering of light gesso on top of darker gesso to create a controlled surface in which the dark layer sits just beneath a thin, light skin and thereby alludes to a metaphorical weight beneath the surface of things. The images reference objects and places from her immediate environment and are created by sanding / etching through the thin top layers to reveal the darker gesso beneath. 

Vaughan-Evans currently lives and works in Melbourne, Australia.  Her work is included in corporate, public and private collections both locally and internationally.
