David and Grace's Gallery

David and Grace Cross

David Cross is an award-winning Visual Artist with a Master’s Degree in Art from the USA. He retired as a visual art educator and Head of Department, Visual Art after 40 yrs. David focuses on his passions of drawing and/or oil painting and has had success winning numerous art awards and awarded entries into juried exhibitions in the Brisbane area art scene over the past few years. David's inspiration is the environment, using light as a catalyst and how it imparts on the subject matter. "When light hits an object, whether it be glass, metal, water, the human form or the everyday environment, it reflects, refracts, casts shadows and is even absorbed in the object. What I focus on is how I interpret this light as it reveals colour and form."  David’s work is in private collections in Australia, Europe and USA.
