Josephine Josephsen

  • Biography

    I always paint from life and am lucky to have access to the working boats: the fishing boats, service boats, ferries and tugs of Sydney Harbour and nearby Port Stephens, becoming familiar with them in the process.

  • Influences

    Recent years 2019, 2018 have taken me to Florence for printmaking workshops at ‘Il
    Bisonte’. I graduated from NAS with a Fine Arts Degree in 2015, having established
    PUNCH STREET STUDIO www.punchstreetstudio.com in 2014 as my permanent studio and
    gallery space. In 2013 I undertook a course in gold leaf and egg tempera at Bottega d’Arte
    in Siena. Early in 2011 I sketched “In the Footsteps of the Masters” in Rome with Michele
    Hiscock and the AGNSW. My art tour in Umbria in 2009 with Neil Moore stimulated my
    interest in portraiture. While in Florence in 2005 I studied gold leaf application with Italian
    artist Roberto Ciabani. I am a member of WAC and have participated in its Life Drawing
    Group for 9 years.
