TNBT - Finalist - Bec Bartell - Emerald Drops
61 x 91cm
Acrylic on Canvas
Born and raised in Western Australia Bec Bartell grew up with a love of animals and
nature. Art has always been a part of her life in some way shape or form and after many
years of practicing quilting and textile art she decided to teach herself to paint. Bec’s
work re?lects her love of the natural world and combines it with her fascination for the
paintings of the Baroque and Dutch Golden Age by combining natural light effects with moody dark backdrops.
Since 2015 her reputation as an acrylic painter has grown, with her work now in
galleries on both coasts of Australia and in many private collections around the world.
Bec has been a finalist in the Bluethumb Art Prize both in 2021 and 2022, along with
being a ?inalist in many local Art Awards in Western Australia. Her work recently
featured on the cover of Kate Morton novel in 6 different countries.
