Narrative plays an important part within my art, which embraces both figurative and landscape works. Colour and vibrancy are also important and my preferred medium is oil on board.

Painting has been my lifetime vocation. My first solo show was in Melbourne, 1961. Countless works with various subjects, mediums, styles and colours have been shown, sold, acquired, overpainted or trashed since then. Fortunately the creative process remains a challenge.
I bring diverse cultural influences into my work, having created pottery and ceramics for the last 35 years. An unquenchable curiosity has led me to continually explore new styles of production and glazing with the result that many of my works are unique, exciting and very different.
Elongated beings animal human or hybrid are my latest interest.
I use a combination of re-cycled textiles, re-purposed objects and bits
I may also add embroidery, leather, hemp ,string, telephone wire or wool.
It takes me a long time to put them together to build a character I am happy with they hang on the wall a bit like a totem.
Painting/drawing is still part of my output and themes vary from
landscape to mythology
I am a contemporary artist living in the coastal town of Lennox Head. I am inspired by my experiences of the natural world and my artworks explore the landscape and both wild and domestic animals. I am a multidisciplinary artist creating works in oil and acrylic painting, printmaking and sculpture.
I am a practising artist and teacher. I work mainly in contemporary watercolours. I am a graduate from the London Art Collage and have had numerous solo and joint exhibitions. My work is being published as greeting cards which are being distributed nationally and overseas. I have been a finalist in many art prizes including the Woollahra small art prize.
My art borders between craft and art. I am interested in the domestic, and use every day items to create my three dimensional objects. I live in Mullumbimby and gather inspiration from my local environment
I am an Art Therapist and an artist. My work explores an emotional landscape. My pursuit is to imbue the canvas with feeling, to encapsulate a range of human dramas and emotions. I transform objects, memories and dreams into abstractions, fused with a touch of reality.
I hope to capture the spirit of the Australian landscape and share my experience of the natural world through my artwork.
My landscape paintings, with their bright skies, deep shadows and silhouettes, capture the essence of the Australian landscape. After spending time in the field I return to the studio to paint artworks that investigate how we remember the places we have visited.
My work fits into the tradition of Australian landscape painting
with the challenge of working with paint and canvas to say
something new. There are several major themes covered in the
works which are fully detailed on https://www.jaypearse.com/
I am the Founding President of PAN.
I paint from a continuous process, letting brush, knife, paint, textures, sculpting by adding beads or objects, tearing, sewing and collage form the finished painting. Excited by texture, colour, light and movement, I love to breathe life into a painting, hoping to inspire the viewer; to create an emotion.
I retired from teaching over twenty years ago and was very keen to learn drawing and painting. It’s been a wonderful journey through a diverse range of workshops to learn dry mediums followed by watercolour, acrylics and oils. Rather than specialising in a particular medium, I enjoy working in the medium which I think best suits the subjects that inspire me.
The Northern Rivers Region of New South Wales where I live offers a wonderful variety of natural environments for me to use as a starting point for my art work. I
work in a variety of media; principally in oils and acrylic for work on canvas, and watercolour and gouache for work on paper when drawing en plein air.
Working in Northern Rivers provides me with a wealth of
inspiration. As a ceramic artist, I love to focus on Australian
native flora, and I intend pieces to be reminders to save our
unique native flora and fauna.
I am a Watercolor artist living and working in the Northern Rivers Region. I am a lifelong painter. I paint local landscapes, seascape and surreal personal works using bright, beautiful, natural earth pigment. I often paint out in the landscape to capture the drama, movement and colour of local scenes
I work primarily in clay to produce abstract ceramics. As almost all of the pieces are of domestic size, for internal placement, I favour cold glazing after bisque firing. This allows me great flexibility in finishes incorporating metal powers and synthetic resins.
My only aim is self satisfaction, self indulgence really.
