Rose Van Oyen

  • Artist’s Statement







    Ceramics are the focus of Rose's practice, and while she enjoys creating quirky and whimsical pieces related to her love of Alice in Wonderland, her other concerns revolve around the Australian landscape. Rose portrays the beauty of our natural Australian flora through mark making on clay vessels integrated with the ever shifting sculptural expressions of the landscape of our coastal environment. Rose is currently working towards her next exhibition. Her work can be viewed under AbbieRose Collections on Instagram and Facebook. Rose's work is currently on display at Red Hill Gallery in Brisbane. Her work can also be viewed at the Woodford Community Art Group Gallery and Bohemia Cafe Sandgate.

  • Biography

    Rose Van Oyen is a multidisciplinary visual artist living and working in the Moreton Bay region of Queensland.

    Rose draws her inspiration from memories, literature, flowers/gardens and the natural world around her, in particular the ocean. She has always been interested in arts and crafts, from an early age pushing herself to use a range of mediums.

  • Influences

    An ongoing theme in Rose's work is the exploration of the natural world, in particular coastal erosion. The ocean can be a beautiful and peaceful place, but also powerful and dangerous.


    Rose also loves to create quirky and whimsical pieces related to her love of Alice in Wonderland.
