Harry Westera: About Grafton
Harry presents a selection of new works that explore the Clarence Valley.
As a ‘Contemporary Traditional’ artist, Harry seeks to create images that expresses the wonderful in the ordinary. He has achieved this through keen observation and an appreciation of how light falls on forms to reveal tone and colour.
Harry trained in drawing and painting at the Julian Ashton Art School and under the Tonal Impressionist portrait painter Graeme Inson. He has studied watercolour under well-known watercolourists David Taylor and Ross Paterson and participated in a Portrait Masterclass with Robert Hannaford.
Having an honours degree in Art History and Theory, Harry combines his practical skills with a deep understanding of the methods and traditions of Western Art. He is a qualified secondary Visual Arts teacher and has much experience in Adult Education classes and workshops.
