Bridie Watt is a Newcastle based artist. Her art-making practice is centred around painting and drawing with her work largely inspired by natural forms and colours. Watt’s work often features birds, which could symbolise aspects of her life; the bird hurriedly on its way somewhere or crouching in the quiet, bathed in the beauty of the world around.
Bridie has also created various landmark murals around Newcastle which have become very popular and well known within the community. She is also a secondary Visual Arts teacher currently teaching at Lambton High School.
