Samantha Tipler

Inspired by the sounds‚ smells, colours and textures of the beach, Tipler graduated from the South Australian School of Art and has painted in the UK and Australia.

Predominantly working in acrylics,Tipler takes her influences from my environment and loves to add texture and layers while working in bold, vibrant colours to create paintings that are full of movement & energy with vivid expressions and impressions.

Artists Statement - Influences
My first influences were the French Impressionists‚ closely followed by the Australian Heidelberg School artists. I was in awe and amazed by the gorgeous artwork I saw whilst travelling through Europe‚ with Musee d'Orsay‚ Gaudi and the Salvador Dali museum being major highlights. Living in Bristol gave me an appreciation and love for street art. Closer to home‚ I have taken great inspiration from Brett Whitely and love his expression and style. I enjoy visiting local art galleries regularly and being inspired by different artists and the many and varied experiences available in Adelaide. In my work I take inspiration mostly from nature and love the colours‚ patterns‚ texture and details. There is inspiration for painting literally everywhere!
