  • Artist Statement & Bio

    This work was one of a series painted after the devastation of losing everything we owned in the December bush fires. It is process driven on loose canvas, from a roll given to me by a friend. My paintings in this series are intuitive, spontaneous and cathartic, based on memories of my home and land. Phoenix Rising #1 has many layers of memory, thus many layers of paint, until I’m happy with the resolution BIOGRAPHY Roxanne Lillis is a Painter, living and working in The beautiful Southern Highlands regions of New South Wales.
