Silvia Busetto

Originally from northern Italy, I moved to artistic and culturally active Margaret River in 2013 to pursue my passion for creating art.

Aside from painting, I’ve always loved landscape and street photography, but I’ve evolved over the last few years to capture artistic performances wherever I can; theatre, musicians, dancers, as they inspire my own creative process.

I study the performers' movements, their poses and positions, their colourful costumes and the details of their instruments. What I learn from taking photos, I then depict in watercolour or oil, trying to convey atmosphere, emotion and passion.

Music and dance are wonderful to experience, but once the performance is over, the memory slowly disappears from our minds.

It’s my aim to create little pieces of joy that can permanently adorn the walls of our homes, keeping those positive feelings and memories alive.
