Danish born artist Gitte Backhausen is a Gerringong (NSW South Coast) local and co-founder of Fern Street Gallery. Well known for her expressive and lively abstract paintings, her practise is multidisciplinary, including printmaking, assemblage and mixed media works on paper. 
The common theme throughout her practice relates to questioning our roles in the world and navigating the human experience. She has a strong connection to nature and often refer to her artworks as ’subconscious abstract landscapes’. Her lively and free approach to painting and mark-making contributes to the authentic and uplifting feel to her work. As a workshops facilitator she support others in freeing up their visual language and trusting themselves in their work. Prolific and committed to her art practise, Gitte has been selected for numerous art prizes over the years.
