About Seabastion

Seabastion Toast lives and works on the Mid North Coast NSW, Australia. Among her achievements she recently won the $10,000 Darcy Doyle Landscape Award, was in the top 8 finalists of the Evelyn Award for painters under 45, a double award at the 2019 Glover Prize and is regularly a finalist in many prominent art prizes.

Co-existing with her very active outdoors lifestyle, Toast’s paintings embody a very physical approach to the subject, with layers built up, scraped down and obscured. Toast has a degree in Fine Art from SCU including an exchange placement with the Pratt Institute in New York.

She also loves teaching, running up mountains, surfing, her dog, Audrey, and horses.
