April Hague is a contemporary visual artist living and working on Boandik land. Her arts practice incorporates mural production, figurative work and portraiture in a variety of painting and drawing mediums.
Her work often originates from her regular life drawing practice and she is a co-facilitator of monthly life drawing sessions in her local community. Through a feminist lens, April’s work explores concepts of subculture, oppression and representation, and what it means to live on the margins of society.
April has vast experience in the production of public artworks and regularly exhibits in Adelaide and around the Limestone Coast. In 2019 she was the recipient of the Urban Cow Emerging Artist Award and in 2018 won the Minister’s Award for Secondary Art Education. She was awarded a place in the Country Arts SA Nebula program in 2021 and will exhibit with this group during SALA this August at the Burra Regional Gallery. She is active in the arts community and enjoys opportunities to enhance the lives of others through their own creative expression.
April is also a secondary art teacher of 25 years, and lives with her two teenage sons and her Cavalier King Charles Spaniel in Mount Gambier.
