Louise Martin-Chew – Board Member

She won an art prize or two but, after discovering art history at university, she stopped painting to write about the work of others. She has authored many books and is a regular contributor to magazines and journals. Her biography Fiona Foley Provocateur: An Art Life won best book (joint prize) at the Art Association of Australia and New Zealand awards in 2022.
