Expedition to Antarctica
Finding the BIG Kimberley Boabs
Sketching near Kununurra

Nadeen Lovell is a professional artist, originally from Queensland. Living in Sydney for several years, gaining experience in Business she later studied at the prestigious Julian Ashton School of Art.

Discovering the Kimberley was to change the direction of her life and work. Becoming a 4WD Tours-Driver/Guide, gave her invaluable knowledge of this rugged country for the next seven years. She painted and exhibited in the off seasons.

Two expeditions to Antarctica added contrasting subject matter and palette. 1997… Nadeen came in from the bush, took off for the United States, her second visit, to see the galleries of New York and Washington. Returning to the Kimberley, she opened a small art school and began making plans to open a gallery.

DIVERSION GALLERY, later to become LOVELL GALLERY, was launched in March 1998, in Kununurra, East Kimberley. Nadeen continued to teach until 2006. A brief trip to Madagascar was undertaken to enrich her ongoing interest in the iconic Baobab. Work on her second panorama, was begun mid-2006 and completed and unveiled in 2008.

Mentoring her stable of artists, judging various art competitions around W.A., organising her popular Ord Valley Muster- Annual Art Appreciation Evening, (with surprise themes), for 10 consecutive years and taking exhibitions far afield occasionally, eventually took a toll on her own time in the studio.

Early 2013, Nadeen finally handed over her demanding gallery business, to new management (now Artopia Gallery), to devote time on her own painting.

Still a resident of The Kimberley, you may currently find Nadeen and her continuing Exhibitions anywhere in Australia. Lovell Gallery for the time being, is Online & On the Move.

Nadeen’s work is held in private collections throughout Australia and in many overseas countries. Several of her pieces are owned by Companies and Government Departments, including the Premier’s Department, W.A. One of her panoramas hangs in the foyer of The Perth Convention Centre.
