Flinders Island Art

Maria LaGrue

Visitors to Whitemark on Flinders Island are familiar with Maria’s commanding mural in the Main Street at Taste of Flinders. Tasmanian landscapes are the inspiration for Maria’s work – her beautiful paintings are colourful, captivating, whimsical and in demand.

 ‘There is so much about the Furneaux Islands that can capture you. Within the community exists an active, thriving group of artists – people who find their inspiration from this environment.’

Maria’s passion for painting led her from textile printing and fashion design to now running her own studio offering private tuition. Participants can explore many techniques and mediums and instil a love of visual art to clients of all ages.
