Author: David Carroll - Visual Artist

David is a contemporary artist using many types of media to create abstract artwork. Born in 1947 in North Wales, he migrated to Australia in 1970 with his wife and children. David spent many years working in the electrical trades. In 2011 he had the good fortune to be accepted as a full time, mature age student at Southern Cross University, Lismore, NSW. graduating after four years of study with a Bachelors Degree of Visual Art (Honours). David and his wife, now great-grandparents, live in the Northern Rivers region of NSW. where David paints in his studio most days. His abstract works are inspired by memory; not so much to depict specific events but rather, a series of emotional situations infused by present moments of recollection. In recent times, after being diagnosed with Parkinson's disease, his work has taken a new direction. His 'Elemental Representional" abstract paintings use colour, form and symbolic motifs, to create his visual story line. David regards himself as a mature age, emerging artist.
