Roberta Louise Sheridan is a visual artist working under the alias, Bertie Louise. Bertie has made her mark in the Perth art scene for her surreal colours and abstract expressionism, representing everyday experiences, nostalgia and familiarity. Primarily a painter who works with acrylics, as of 2017, Bertie dived head first into the brave new world of digital creations. She continues to establish her niche within the community and draws her inspiration from her life and profound experiences. Bertie is available for murals, live painting and private commissions.
