Cleo Williams was born in Manila, Philippines. She arrived in Australia at the age of 13 and attended Toorak College in Mt. Eliza. She enrolled at Frankston TAFE to study art where she received her Certificate. She continued onto RMIT to further her studies in Interior Design.
In the early 1990’s she decided to take up watercolour at Balwyn Community Centre and then at Ashburton Community Centre. She also attended CAE in Melbourne.
Cleo has exhibited in various Art Exhibitions at Camberwell, St. Kevin’s, Mordialloc, Dromana, Sorrento and Blairgowrie. She recently exhibited in the 2012 Visualising Human Rights Arts Exhibition in Melbourne which was a huge success.
Cleo has recently found a passion for abstract painting. She says, “I seem to be able to express myself better with splashes of bright colours that make me happy and most of all, it seems to make people happy, I like that. Life is bright and full of colours and that’s what I strive to express in my paintings.”
As someone quoted, “An artist paints a picture for people to see and a composer creates a symphony, for people to listen to’, Cleo creates her paintings for people to draw positivity and vibrancy.
“I am an individual, my own person and that’s what my painting is all about. It is what it is, simple and colourful.”
