My arts practice is changing and evolving with new environmental directions and passions. I find myself comfortable expressing these through different mediums, varying from an eco dye pot, brush to an etching press, or speaking out through my community filmmaking. So much to say and so much to learn, I feel I will be creating to my last breath.
My newest venture is along the Healing Arts path. Reversible wearable art coats and clothing infused with Australian Bush Essence for healing. Life is never dull on the creative path.
I am a machine operator based out of townsville.i learned metal fabrication in Tasmania in the mid 90's as a prerequisite to employment with incat.i have aspirations to step into more abstract work with my goal being long lasting pieces that give first time viewers a bit of a pleasant surprise..i aim to improve on each piece I create and the skills learned through the process often lend themselves to some interesting trouble shooting on builds
I work across many media, acrylic, gouache, pastel, oil and occasional clay and recycled materials. A love of Natural History; a 2acre block that has become a wildlife sanctuary provides inspiration for much of my work. I love to draw and sketch. My travels result in small visual notebooks and each week I join colleagues in life drawing sessions.
My art and design works are photographic images which I choose to use either traditionally or to form the basis of contemporary and composite pieces. I love the sense of being able to construct pieces to my own design as a painter may do, but also work with the more formal photographic works as produced 'in camera'
All my works are available for sale printed on either canvas, specialist photo paper or fabric and can be printed to a range of required sizes.
For me the animal kingdom is the driving force behind my art as I love to delve into the diversity of animal life. My intention is to capture my subject’s character and expression, incorporating their humour, their majesty and wonder, and as a result, the painting then tells its own story.

“My art is a response to my inner life of thoughts, emotions and experiences which is given form in visual language. It’s my way of showing and sharing some of my life experiences with the world by using techniques and materials that interest and challenge me at the time.”
Dorothy lives and works in North Maleny, in the beautiful Sunshine coast Hinterland of Queensland,
She has exhibited widely in both solo and group exhibitions and her artwork is represented in private and public collections throughout Australia and Internationally.
I am a potter & clay artist enjoying all facets of clay work. I have a small studio 1km north of Montville Village.
I welcome visitors by appointment to my studio or on my weekend open days. I love answering questions about how my pieces have been made.
Recently I have been making bespoke dinner sets for some of my clients which is a new avenue for me. Would you like something made especially for you?
Judi is a multimedia artist and her art practice includes painting, drawing, photography, videography, mixed media and writing.
Her works of art are an eclectic collection of paintings, movies, photography and books. However, regardless of the medium, her collective art practice usually records a personal visual diary of her experiences, her garden, Maleny and surrounds, and her travels.
