Geraldine Mackenzie is Brisbane born, currently living and working in Toowoomba. Her creative practice draws inspiration from the interplay of light and shade with natural and built forms. She paints landscapes, parkscapes, cityscapes and seascapes in acrylics and oils.
With a strong sense of place, her work is grounded in the ever-changing and diverse Queensland landscape, and inspired by narratives of city and country, journeys and different paths. Tutored by well known Brisbane artist David Hinchliffe, he remains a mentor and major influence.
Favourite subjects are urban landscapes and parks in South East and South West Queensland, particularly the Japanese Garden in Toowoomba, and the atmospheric and ancient landscape of the Bunya Mountains.
