Audrey Buttigieg Cardona, 2D artist, painter

Audrey Buttigieg Cardona born in Malta, 1978, is an emerging artist who expresses herself mainly on paper.She draws her inspiration from the animal and natural worlds, interpreting life around her through a combination of real life drawing and doodling, which brings out her innermost emotions.

Her mentors helped her discover a new way of looking at things and they include internationally renowned Maltese artists, Joseph Mallia,Joseph Paul Cassar and the late Isabelle Borg. In Australia, her work has been featured at the Brunswick Art Gallery, Open Studios in the West, Art in Public Places organised by Hobsons Bay Council and a solo exhibition at Hunts Club Community Arts Centre, Deer Park. In Malta, she participated in collaborative exhibitions; in 2007 as part of a religious exhibition and in 2005 as a joint exhibition with Maltese artist Charmaine Zammit.

In addition to creating her own artwork, Audrey teaches Visual Arts to young students at Christ the Priest Primary School. She believes in mentoring and guiding young minds to discovering their talents and creating their own artwork.
