Roz McQuillan graduated from R.M.I.T. with the Diploma of Illustration, and worked in children’s book illustration for many years. She has a passionate interest in portraits and the figure, and works in a number of mediums, including pastel, charcoal and conte, pen and ink, gouache, watercolour, acrylics, pencil, photography, mixed media, and currently, oils. Her work, including commissioned portraits and nudes, is represented in many private collections, both Australian and International, and she has won a number of art prizes and highly commended awards.

Roz convenes a life-drawing group at Brighton Art Society, and has studied oil painting with Peter Churcher, Lee Machelak, and Maxwell Wilkes, and drawing with Harold Freedman, Geoff Dupree and Godwin Bradbeer.

‘I developed a love of drawing as a child, when I first drew my aging auntie in the bath. I have always been fascinated by people, their character and the individuality of their faces, which has led to my passionate interest in portraits and figurative work. My nudes are real people, not generic or idealized. I strive to capture the essence of a person and their uniqueness. My other fascination is with the drama of light, and the way it shapes and changes objects, enhances composition, and creates mood.’
