Where Artists and Lovers of Art Meet!

Featured Artist


Petra's Gallery

Petra Daecke

Her lifelong love for nature and the deep connection she has to the landscape and its magical beauty inspires Petra Daecke to paint.

The artist was born and raised in Germany and lives now on the Gold Coast in Australia since 1988. Petra also has travelled through many countries over time with a diversity of vegetation, climate and cultures and always loves to learn and explore more.
Her paintings are part of collections in Australia, Canada and Germany.

Her favourite medium is pastel with its vibrancy of colours and possibilities of textures, but also loves the versatility of oil paint and its rich glow.

She endeavours to communicate not only what she sees and feels, but also a place’s rhythm, atmosphere and spirituality in her paintings. Her aim is to inspire people to reconnect mankind back to nature and remind people that we are all part of a whole.  

From her own experience, Petra believes that spending time in the natural landscape may open people’s hearts, give time to reflect, restore energy and has the potential to heal bruised souls.
In today’s busy world with all its challenges nature brings peace and wisdom to whoever is prepared to watch and listen.
The impact of paintings can be immediate and lasting, it is a universal language that speaks to all people with layers of meaning.
