Josette Macpherson is an artist based in Bundjalung country, the Northern Rivers region of New South Wales. Josette studied fine art in Sydney at UNSW Art and Design when it was known as College of Fine Arts before relocating to the Tweed Coast in 2012.
Inlets and outlets is an exploration of the creeks, rivers and waterfalls unique to the region. Josette is continually inspired by the shapes, textures and colours of the Northern Rivers and it’s unique coastline, topography and geography. She paints in an abstract style with organic lines, shapes and texture; referencing vintage maps, books and also drone footage taken with her husband, and photographer, Andy Macpherson. Josette uses a mix of acrylic, oils and cold wax on hand-stretched raw linen. Josette's obsession with painting waterways began as a way to explore her fascination with the Australian pastime of flocking to the waterways at every opportunity.
On an average day Josette can be found painting in her home studio and swimming in the Kingscliff creek with her husband and 3 daughters.
