Hi I'm Magda Kuiken

I am an award winning artist who combines my love of landscapes around us with painting in watercolours and other media (soft pastels, ink, charcoal, gouache and acrylics). My paintings,  many of which are displayed in Australian and overseas collections, are received as truly captivating with a signature style throughout all my work. Creativity is a life-long passion which keeps me inspired and fulfilled for everyday life. My  design education and experience (including drawing, composition, handing of colours, painting techniques) provides a solid foundation to achieve excellent results.


Who are my role models in art?

J.M.W. Turner, John Singer Sargent, Winslow Homer, John Constable, Edgar Degas, Pierre-Auguste Renoir, Edouard Manet.
