If you stop at river herald office on Percy St, Echuca, you will be immediately struck by the array of artwork in the reception area.

Every six to eight weeks, a local artist has the opportunity to showcase their wares, all of which are available for purchase.

The latest collection is that of renowned Echuca artist Kathleen Watson.

Originally from the United States, Ms. Watson has developed her talents over the past decade.

“I like heavy textures and I guess you would describe my work as impressionistic,” Ms. Watson said.

“I am a dance choreographer and a hairdresser by profession, so I like my paintings to represent movements.”

Ms. Watson enjoys working with oil, acrylic and charcoal to create her mood-provoking pieces.

Among the works presented by The Riv are Moonshine, a beautiful landscape, and the striking Twilight, which uses a white pastel technique.

“The inspiration for Moonshine is the Grand Canyon,” she said.

“I definitely prefer larger type works.”

His range of works covers contemporary art, landscapes, animals, wildlife and figurative art.

Ms. Watson has exhibited her work in many places including The Foundry, South Yarra Art House, Solo Alton Gallery and Tin Shed.

The river herald is proud to present artists in partnership with Customs House Gallery.
