Luisa Romeo

Luisa Romeo was born in Melbourne to Italian migrants.

Her art practice began when she was able to grip a pencil between her fingers. Drawing has always been a daily practice where she could express her dreams, ideas and perception of life. As the years streamed by, her practice grounded her as an individual.

The concept of putting pencil to paper exhilarated her and her voice was found amongst a vast world of confusion. Her lines are confident, graphic and bold, showing a great understanding and appreciation of the subject. Printmaking has offered challenges and stimulated an extension of her visual language. The graphic qualities of the woodblock and lino complemented her drawing technique. Art chose her and without it she is lost in the confusion.
