About Me

My name is Elizabeth Fortescue, and this is my website. It’s for artists and art lovers everywhere. I hope it informs and entertains you with news and views about the art scene in Sydney, and all over Australia.

As Visual Arts Writer for the Daily Telegraph, I am out and about in the Sydney art world all the time – talking to artists in their studios, writing about exhibitions, and covering the news as it breaks in the art world. This includes everything from art fraud to auction prices.

I am also the Australian correspondent for The Art Newspaper, which covers the art world internationally and is an amazing read.

I recently appeared in a film by Catherine Hunter about the artist Wendy Sharpe, which was launched with Wendy’s latest exhibition.

My writing also appears in various Australian art magazines, including Artist Profile.

Do feel free to be in touch with me at my email, elizabeth@artwriter.com.au

Best wishes,
Elizabeth Fortescue
