My inspiration comes from Canberra. The unique combination of wild nature and urban life, vast horizons and blue hills. I feel nourished and full of burning desire to create, to paint, to capture my feelings on canvas everyday.
About the Artist
Valentyna Crane is an Australian artist, who re-discovered the techniques and knowledge she learned in a very different place, in the context of the nature, history and social fabric of Australia.
Valentyna follows Contemporary Impressionism, the style that focuses on the effects of changing light and weather, concentrates on feelings of moving air and emotions of the particular landscape scene.
She received her professional training in one of the oldest (founded in 1922) art schools on the territory of former USSR, with clear lineage to the famed Imperial Academy of Arts, one of the organisations that adopted Impressionism from its French creators, developed it and brought it into the 20th Century.
