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.
A former Graphic Designer, I have developed a good eye for design, form and colour and use this in telling stories through the subjects of teacups and portraits.
I have a deep interest in people and enjoy the challenge of capturing something of their personality in my depictions of them.
I also enjoy communicating my ideas and skills to others on a regular basis in Nambour where we have lots of fun in the process!
Am open to invitations to tutor ad to commission work and have been honoured with several 1st prizes for both my Portrait and Still Life work.
I started painting about 8 years ago with no prior knowledge or experience. My interest developed after trying to help my disabled daughter, Kimberley. She has now retired but I found I like to paint.
My style is still developing and I have experimented with all mediums. Currently I like to paint wildlife in a realistic style, however this concept can be demanding and requires a lot of research into the anatomy of the particular animal being painted and concentration to get the right composition, structure and colours.
Annie's studio is situated outside Peachester, south of Maleny. From the Kilcoy Beerwah Rd, turn into the delightfully scenic River Rd. Drive approximately 5km , cross a double concrete bridge, and follow the signs to an original Queenslander farmhouse, situated right at the roadside amongst pasture and forest. Access is easy, lots of parking.
Annie participates in the Open Studio trail and is happy to show visitors her art techniques and practices. There are art works displayed gallery style as well as works in progress to see.
Working across new media, ceramics, painting and installation Turner's work evokes the landscape of her childhood: central Queensland, a place of dry grass, listless cattle and the scorching sun. Poignantly, memories of bodily responses to this landscape form the foundation of Turner's work.
I am primarily working in acrylics and pastels and enjoy the use of strong colours in modern land and seascapes and still-lifes.
I love the landscapes of Queensland art legend John Rigby and also the still-lifes of Criss Canning. I have been lucky enough to study pastels with Leonie Duff and Max Wilks, two of Australias best known pastellists, as well as acrylics with Mignon Parker at the McGregor Schools in Toowoomba.
Travelling both in Australia and Overseas provides continuing inspiration and of course my art provides an excuse for more travel.
Corrie Wright’s transdisciplinary art practice operates within the context of interaction, collaboration and process. Working in a diversity of forms and processes Corries practice reflects a strong relational role for art, one about people & place. Working within individual practice, community arts development including the disability sector, public art and installation the process empowers people from marginal groups to deliver self-determination outcomes, develop imaginative choices and opportunities for independent living.
I began studying to become a ceramic artist in 1979. My initial interests were hand building and alternate 'primitive' firings.
Despite following many pathways my work now is little changed. My work is either thrown, slip cast or hand-built. My choice of clay is porcelain or terracotta.
My present work is Raku-fired, perhaps with metallic lustres; simple shapes with coloured slips and mid-fired; terracotta shapes & vessels for the garden.
My shapes are minimalist My glazing techniques simple. I decorate using coloured slips, carving or airbrushing metallic oxides.
