Dr. Flossie Peitsch, a Creative Thesis PhD from Victoria University and MFA, BFA(HONS) from Monash University, Melbourne, is an internationally exhibiting multimedia, performance art, and installation artist residing in Melbourne. A cross disciplinary artist and community liaison, Peitsch is a ‘visual art’ theologian with interests in social sculpture, generating creative communities through the arts and contemporary spirituality facilitating the self-realization of being. She is equally at home creating inside, outside and ephemeral art.
Her outstanding commissions for public and community art found in Melbourne’s challenged western suburbs and the Illawarra of NSW are projects noted for their expansion of the definition of Fine Art - many largely having been fabricated through free public art workshops.
Flossie’s work is featured in numerous public and private collections in Australia and world wide, including Concordia University, Chicago, USA, Ararat Regional Art Gallery, Ararat, VIC; Victoria University, Melbourne and Monash University, VIC.
