Australian artist Elisabeth Cummings’ career is going well and her painting is getting more attention.
“I’m not mad about it in lots of ways,” she said. “I like anonymity.”
After years of what Cummings describes as “quietly working away” practicing her art and teaching, the painter and printmaker has had in the past six months had a show in Hong Kong, plus two highly successful exhibitions in Sydney.
“In the last 20 years I think I’ve grown more confident,” she told the ABC.
Her landscapes and interiors are on show at the Manly Art Gallery alongside Lloyd Rees and Brett Whitely.
The only surprising thing about it is that she is 81 years old.
