Bio/Contact

Denise Pepper is a Perth based artist and has had a professional career since graduating at ECU Mt Lawley in 2006.  Denise’s art practice intertwines sophisticated Glass Art with large scale sculptures and elegant detailed art pieces.  Denise has developed a highly crafted set of skills to construct an imaginative fusion of ideas and materials.  Her art considers craftsmanship in the fabrication of lace and embroidery by translating this textiles-based research into unique art, delicate and complex and unapologetically decorative.  Fundamentally a glass artist, Denise regularly exhibits in public sculpture exhibitions experimenting with diverse materials such as copper and acrylic plastics.

 

Unapologetically decorative.
