Bianca Vern-Barnett is an artist based in the Hunter Valley of NSW.
She makes paintings which use symbols and motifs, both recognisable and invented, to create highly personal and meaningful works which explore her inner world. Her recent body of work centers around the imagined childhood Greek village of her much loved Nana Chrisula.
Since graduating from UNSW College of Fine Arts in 1998, she has exhibited in artist run and commercial spaces in Newcastle and the Hunter Valley. After taking time away from her practice to work in education and raise her family, she returned to full time painting in 2022.
Her work is held in private collections in the USA and Canada, as well as in Melbourne, Sydney and the Hunter Valley.
