Gitte Backhausen is an established artist and workshop facilitator, located in beautiful Gerringong.
Predominantly known for her expressive abstract paintings, Gitte is a multidisciplinary artist which includes working with printmaking, mixed media and assemblage art.

Her work has a strong link to the surrounding nature and with her interest in psychology, this brings both familiarity and depth to her work.

Her printmaking, in particular, has a real connection to the South Coast, as she collects fallen leaves, twigs and branches on her walks in the area and uses them in her printmaking works. Contact her for full catalogues and details.

A prolific artist with many solo and group exhibitions behind her both locally, in Sydney, interstate and overseas, she has furthermore been a finalist in numerous art prizes, including: Kangaroo Vallery Art Prize, Meroogal Women’s Art Prize, Northern Beaches Art Prize, Northern Beaches Art Prize, Blacktown City Art Prize, Warringah Art Prize and Waverley Art Prize.
