I love all sorts of art, music and creativity, and am greatly inspired by the cheerful honesty of folk art, having picked this style up along the way when I was a young mother. I am a multimedia artist who likes trying new and exciting mediums and projects, I enjoy the actual learning, and love breaking the rules. I work with all kinds of materials including ceramics, pottery, china painting, wood burning, print making, silk dying, tie dye, stained glass and anything else I can get my hands on.This is true creativity. My hubby and I have created a home that is full of art, with a quirky garden, a piano in the front yard, a mosaic letterbox, and many fun and colourful things surrounding us.

Roger was born in Stuttgart / Germany in 1943 but has lived in Australia since 1993.
Working in oils, he made his first picture for his grandmother at 6 years of age. He continued to paint, on and off over the years when he had time, mostly for relaxation.
Since his retirement he has focussed more and more on his art, developing a more abstract style and drawing on his love of the Australian landscape for inspiration.

Since emigrating to Australia over 11 years ago I have been lucky enough to work with many artists and have been working full-time in my own arts practice since 2017. My work has evolved since leaving art college in 1995 and my bright abstract pieces are a reflection of my life, personality and the world in which I live. I use both acrylic and oils paints and I love to add final touches with chalk or oil pastels. My work is a multi-layered movement of colour and I love to create large impactful feature pieces.

I am a visual artist making jewellery that expresses my reverie and deep connection with the natural world. I am interested in physical places and their emotional and spiritual relationship to people. As such I am particularly focused on a certain little pocket of the world where I grew up, the Western Australian bush, east of Perth. I start my creative process exploring and observing. Happily travelling north or south, walking places looking with intent, taking visual notes with my camera, capturing the
delicate fleeting wonder in the ever evolving and shifting landscape.

My practice is about reclaiming objects so it becomes very eclectric, canvases, paint, objects, and a reconnection with clay. I am considering the recycling of the world around me, and through art. I tend to record a form of self-portrait narrative within my work, and the act of retelling. Essentially is all about the “re’s” of our world today, I am hoping others will see this and consider their own “re’s”, when viewing my work.

BA Hons, Fine Art Printmaking, Gray's School of Art, Scotland. I have lived in Australia and South East Asia, and find myself surrounded by diverse and beautiful plants and wildlife. My process is very organic, including drawings, paintings and prints. In my printmaking practice I work with wood and linoleum plates. The unexpected marks that are made by the tools on the printing block create unique pieces and I find this a thrilling way to work.
