My artwork reflects my story, it's a story without words. Moments of my life and experiences captured on a canvas.
I feel a sense of freedom and exploration when painting allowing me and my work to continually evolve.
Chalie MacRae is an Australian contemporary artist based in Yarraville, Victoria. Recently relocating her studio from the coast to Melbourne's inner west she continues to draw her creative inspirations from both the beauty of the Mornington Peninsula coast and hinterland and the energy of her urban environment and culture.
As a young adult travelling abroad, Chalie developed what would become a long-term love for art. However, it wasn't until after working as an analyst for some years Chalie began painting as a creative outlet. Painting for Chalie is both energizing and calming.
Chalie works with different materials to achieve controlled and unpredictable elements which reflect her curious nature and love for adventure. This has resulted in various painting styles including her successful 'Flow' and 'Seasons' series. She gravitates towards a palette that is nature inspired however her inspirations are diverse and vivid.
Chalie’s paintings have been shown in numerous group exhibitions and her works are held by private collectors domestically and internationally. Original paintings are available through her website and stocked in galleries and lifestyle stores in Victoria.
