Chris Huber's Gallery

Chris Huber

Recognised as one of Australia’s most outstanding landscape artists, Chris Huber arrived in Australia in 1955 where she has lived ever since.

Inspired by the frescoes on the ancient walls in Italy, medieval hilltop farmhouses of Tuscany and fishing villages of Liguria, Chris Huber has travelled the world for many years to fuel her creative appetite, as well as drawing inspiration from the diversity of the Australian landscape. These varied influences, together with a love of interior design and architecture, have shaped her technique to create truly unique artworks.

Chris’s versatility and rich yet subtle palette has resulted in her paintings being represented in private and corporate collections all over the world, and images of her work are constantly selected for reproduction into fine art prints, calendars and cards, as well as collectors’ and gift products sold nationally and internationally.

With the changing demand for more contemporary artworks reflecting today’s modern design and architecture in Australia, Chris has also been painting a vibrant range of deeply layered, three dimensional artworks in collage, using tiles, metal, stones, and special compounds with wonderful colour mixes, all the while maintaining traditional methods of foundation and application to achieve unique professional results. 

The desire to create a range of paintings with the specific aim of outdoor durability saw Chris dedicate time to working with a number of chemists to produce a special compound never before used which is added to the art materials to protect them from all types of weather – further proof of Chris’s commitment to quality in her art.
