Hello. I am Bert Ernie. I am an Australian artist who has been painting for more than 25 years. I am a complete failure in terms of success when you judge that criteria by the number of exhibitions, prizes or sales. I am also a complete and utter lunatic.

I have two distinct styles – Photorealism and Abstraction. I don’t paint much in the way of photorealism these days. The process of duplicating a photograph is tedious and I don’t get any joy out of it. What I do enjoy is painting totally wild, abstract expressionist art. My sole goal with these works is to create paintings that are intensely beautiful.

Please take a few minutes to look at some of the art on my site. I get a great deal of satisfaction in the act of sharing these works of labor and love.
