Located in its leafy seaside suburbs name sake, Studio Elwood is an artistic design company founded by artist Tory Burke. She created the studio to quench the thirst of her artistic practice and passion of making simple, bold, colourful artwork.
Her thoughtful design approach and signature abstract minimalism uses a studied colour palette of warm neutral tones. A geometric balance of graphic shapes are purposefully drawn using mathematical precision of dividing the picture plane.
Using layered oil painting methods her artwork is far from traditional. Lux oil paint is applied to a stunning Italian linen surface. She has developed interesting techniques with a palette knife, scratching into the painted surface to create texture, as well as patterned brush strokes, thick impasto paint and solid graphic line work.
