The central theme for Poncho Army’s art is the exploration of contrasts – between urban and rural spaces, internal and external realities, young and old and between melancholy and joy. She loves to capture youthful innocence and often draws upon her experiences growing up in a shrinking rural landscape to gather inspiration for her work.
Poncho Army was the 2012-2013 artist in residence at Wollongong Art Gallery. She has her worked archived by the National Gallery Of Australia and her pieces are collected around the world. She is a sought after public mural artist and has painted walls all around Australia.
Since 2013 Poncho Army has been running Anchors Aweigh Art Studio in Wollongong, Australia where she teaches workshops in urban, contemporary and graphic arts. The warehouse studio also has an arts supply shop, specialising in aerosol and hard to find materials.
