Hi, my name is Deanne Newland.


I am a contemporary artist & art mentor living in Lake Macquarie (near Newcastle).

I love to create art.

It has been my passion since I was a small child.

My business, The Artistic Soul Studio is attached to my home.

 This is my happy place where I escape, create, hold workshops & mini-exhibitions, and conduct private art sessions.

In another life, I was a Visual Arts teacher at High School.

It was during this time I learned how to be proficient in many mediums.

I draw endless inspiration from my natural environment. I am fortunate to live near beautiful beaches, the lake, and coastal bushland. This subject matter has been featured throughout my artistic career.

Alcohol ink is one of my specialties. Exploring and developing techniques in various other mediums is also constant joy.


I have conducted many art workshops, run artists' retreats overseas, been involved in numerous group exhibitions, held several of my own solo exhibitions, and am grateful to be part of our wonderful artist community in Newcastle and Lake Macquarie.

When I am not creating art, I love spending time with my family and menagerie of animals, doing yoga, gardening, and practicing photography.
