About the artist:

Kylie Porter is a Perth/Mandurah based artist who has been painting for the past 10 years, experiencing life in Outback Australia, Kakadu, Indonesia, Tanzania, Italy and Egypt. In 1993 the need to explore Australia led Kylie into the mining industry to remote Laverton, Western Australia. Then moving to Kakadu National Park in Northern Territory. While working in the Northern Territory Kylie was also involved in the local community "Wind Festivals", offering her professional skills in Graphic Design for promotional material, through to setting up Exhibitions with 'Art back' in Jabiru/Kakadu. Surrounded by rich rugged escarpment, tranquil water lily filled billabongs, Paperbark swamps and the abundance of wild life; Kylie captured this and more with her paintings.
In 2000 Kylie journeyed to Africa - Geita Gold Mine for 8months experiencing a third world culture, painting Africa from the colourful people to farming, and the amazing wildlife. Then to Egypt and Italy.
Recent Exhibitions "Exotica" & "Lush" concentrate on transformations and awakenings exploring the depths of one's heart and soul, capturing deep passions and desires. A series of nudes combined with large exotic flowers, portraying a flash into one's life, pausing still for all to see. The power of seduction and the evolutionary process from lust to love are obvious characteristics. Kylie's use of colour is vibrant and electric drawing the viewer closer, while her Australian landscapes, bird life and exotic flowers derivative of Australian fauna, echo magnificent colour schemes and are a trademark of Kylies work.
In 2004 Kylie worked with Fashion Designer Meredith Forder 'Sakshi - eve'n eden" using Kylies painting 'Temptation' printed on fabric to create a collection for spring/summer 04/05. She spent 2004/05 at Seashells Resort Mandurah. With my farming background I've tried to capture the old Mandurah history - Peel Region, by bringing my family memories alive, using Australiana elements and vibrant colour in a series of paintings on canvas. Seashells Resort will be opening July 2005 with canvas prints of Kylie's paintings decorating the beachfront villas.
