SALWA WOODROFFE

SAT 16TH OCT - SUN 31ST OCT

Opening event: 

6 pm, Saturday, 16th October 

Dr Salwa Woodroffe started painting from an early age and kept practicing it through her university 

studies and her academic carrier in medical microbiology.   In 2000, she became a fulltime artist and 

took courses in painting at TAFE, Sydney School of Art, and many other painting workshops.  During 

the last 20 years after regular outdoor painting the Australian landscape, Salwa has developed her 

unique style emphasizing the interplay of light and shadow on the landscape using oil or acrylic 

media applied by a combination of brushes and palette knifes creating an impressionistic style 

texture of thick against smooth paint and vibrant-bright against dark colours.  There is always a focal 

point in her paintings that communicate with the viewer the magic in the landscape that stopped 

her in her track and made her paint that subject.  The results are paintings that look great from close 

or far distance and makes one feels the emotion of being in the landscape walking through it and 

responding to its beauty, if it was a coastline with dramatic turning sunlit waves, ragged sunburnt 

landscape of the Flinders ranges, a stormy/foggy day on the valley or a fun sunny day of children 

playing on the beach.   

Salwa regularly experiment with many different techniques that can express to the viewer her 

feeling to the subject and hence her paintings have their own story to tell and change accordingly.  


Salwa has received many awards for her painting and was a finalist in various national award 

competitions.  In 2016 she was elected an associate member of the prestigious Royal Art Society of 

Sydney.  Salwa has contributed to ten different articles about her painting style in the Australia Artist 

magazine, featured in the International Contemporary Artists book 2014 edition, and has taken part in 

many solo and combined art exhibitions.  Many of her paintings are in private collection in Australia, 

UK, Canada, NZ
