About Ted Hutchinson - Artist’s Profile

Ted specialises in acrylics using a loose impressionistic style. He is passionate about landscapes and particularly the Outback Australia. However his ability and interest is diverse and he uses other media and styles including abstracts.

He has had his work published in “Australian Artist” and he is the internal illustrator for Di Morrissey's book The Silent Country.

In order to get a deep understanding of the scenery and cultures of Australia, particularly the Outback, Ted has travelled extensively and used these experiences as the inspiration for his paintings. He has been, looked and adventured there.
