CREATIVE PEOPLE | COURTENAY MCCUE
I feel so lucky to have the majority of my family close by on the Gold Coast and it is even cooler to watch them all grow and develop their creative passions and skills. My beautiful cousin Courtenay has finished her first year out of school and wow did she take the world by storm. Courtenay has developed her unique artistic style and wasn't afraid to see where it can take her. So let me introduce her..
When did you discover your passion for art?
I have always seen art in everything from a young age, but I truly discovered that its the career path I want to take at the end of year 12. I had my year 12 major art piece due within a week, and I still had no idea what I was going to do. So I decided to do a piece with a theme that truly inspired me from a young age, which was cartoons and super heroes. I chose my 4 favourite heroes/villains (Batman, Robin, The Joker and Wonder Woman) and got to work. Within a weeks time I had created one of my favourite artworks to this day.
Surprisingly, I find it easier and more enjoyable doing large scale pieces. The thing that consumes the most time is waiting for each layer to dry. I can complete a big canvas within 2-3 days.
