Avalon Mundt resides near the town of Bell on Queensland’s Darling Downs. Her strong rural upbringing is evident in her choice of subject matter – almost always involving horses, cattle, and sheep in the Australian landscape. Avalon has turned her hand to most mediums, including watercolour and pastel, but now paints almost exclusively using acrylics and oils.
In recent years, Avalon has become renowned for her accurate depictions of animals and characters of the iconic Australian outback, and her works belong in private collections Australia-wide. She has won numerous prizes at local exhibitions and shows. Most noteworthy recent accolades include:
- Grand Champion painting, Bell Art Exhibition 2008 (“Behind the Chutes”)
- Reserve Champion painting, Bell Art Exhibition 2013 (“Roses”)
- Hugh Sawrey Prize for Portraiture, Hugh Sawrey Art Exhibition 2008 (“Waiting for the Rain”)
