LIST OF ALL RELEVANT ARTISTS
I have been fascinated with natural materials for all my adult life. Originally working with stone and clay, I discovered timber as a medium in my mid-twenties and have never looked back.
Much of my work draws from the shapes of the natural world. In my practice, I find inspiration from the contrasts between surface and structure, organic and inorganic and perception and reality.
I am a Textile Artist specialising in free machine embroidery, hand stitching and mending. In my textile practice, I explore my surroundings and interpret what I see through embroidery. My work has been exhibited in the United Kingdom and Australia.
Hi my name is Bruce Webb, I am a sculptor and painter. I live in Research and I work in Eltham. I am currently Vice President of the Association of Sculptors Victoria. I graduated with a Diploma of Fine Arts from Caulfield Institute of Technology in 1980. I have been actively creating art for the past ten years with Sculptors Victoria and The Contemporary Arts Society of Victoria.
Melbourne based, born and raised creative, Rhys Cousins, works transdisciplinary across design, art and landscape architecture. He works in installation, sculpture and digital, with a particular interest in exploring texture, surface and materiality in urban cities. He intends for his work to be felt and touched more than seen.
Yvonne's paintings are a revisit to times of old in her life and a change of pace from textiles and sculpture. The luscious subject matter, colour and size of the canvasses in this current series of work are such a welcome change from the monochromatic tiny sculptures she has been immersed in. Flying blind, painting images that excite
I normally spend a large part of each year travelling to different cultures around the world. The women I see on my travels inspire and influence my work, or as I call them “my girls”.
"Kate Girls" are all handmade and they tell me their personalities as I sculpt their face and hair. Once dry they are bisque fired to 1000°. They are then glazed and raku fired, sometimes multiple times.

Beaumaris Art Group, and many more at the last 65 years. Since my advanced age
I still draw and make small ceramic sculptures.
I am a self-taught Glass Artist and have been practicing full time for 17 years; and absolutely love what I do. I work from my Studio in Anderson with my partner where we have our Gallery Shop. We are at the initial stages of building another Gallery within our space as I move into expanding my existing glass practice and working with other mediums that will enhance and compliment glass.

I am a Ballarat based Recycled Cardboard Creative, exploring a creative practice of making art from existing material that is largely considered waste.
I focus on 3 Dimensional sculptures that are a celebration of cardboard, based on the idea of creative limitation, everything must be made out of the box.

Pig and Chisel
I love to make quirky animals with a twist, with a side serve of humor- for people who like something different.
My animals come to life in my studio in the Dandenong ranges, a little down the hill from our house, in the middle of the bush.
I love spending time in my studio, and discovering what the material will bring me that day. Sometimes that is exactly what I planned, and sometimes it is a total surprise. I love how the process brings me revelations that I can build on later.
My work is an investigation into memories and connection, exploring emotion and boundaries and how these elements present to me visually. In my art practice I predominately use mixed media abstraction to create both 2D and 3D works.
I enjoy working intuitively and use a lot of layering techniques to produce raw, organic and personal pieces that have a fragile dreamlike quality underpinned with a textural boldness that make you want to reach out and touch them.
