Erin Dunne is an artist and arts educator currently based in Rockhampton, Central Queensland. She graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Art from Queensland College of Art in 2012.
Experimenting with the language and processes of drawing through both traditional and contemporary approaches forms the foundation of Dunne’s practice. She is attracted to drawing’s immediacy, flexibility and versatility, seeking to exploit its capacity for representing the narrative, poetic and gestural, and the resultant tension created when these intersect on paper.
