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.
Glimpses of European ancestry peek through the sketches and journals that accompany her travels. Through her Artwork, she can transport you to exotic locations, skilfully depict the character and spirit of animals and communicate the quiet beauty of still life...her favourite subjects!
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.
Welcome to my space!
Creation has always been a part of my life. It is my soul's voice. I have no more logical way to describe it as it takes me on journeys that require no words to beautiful realisations and wonderful insights. Over the past ten years my work has gone through many phases but I always come back to drawing with a pencil! It is the thing that lets me find the quiet place with no words that the next story flows from.
My most recent story began with a request to draw a paper plane in space and ended up with images about memory, connection, Freud and of course the purpose of living. There are also lots of inner goddess images about moving through those ideas. It paralleled moving homes and beginning in a new community. Art does that: journal life in the moment.
I love texture, colour and the endless possibilities of art…..
I have been painting, drawing, creating for as long as I can remember and love to pass along the knowledge that I have gained. The process of creating is being able to connect with something greater than yourself, feeling comfortable in taking risks and seeing where your muse takes you. Art classes are a wonderful way of extending your creative pathways. After leaving school I studied commercial art, this has proved invaluable for my own teaching purposes. All of us have an inner artist and it’s learning how to connect to that inner artist that allows you to feel free to take risks and believe in yourself.
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.

Steve Parish sees himself working in two creative spaces as a photographer. The first, is through the eye of a naturalist/educator. The second, as an artist. At times, these two spaces overlap.
However, as a naturalist/educator he is more inclined to compose and produce his images with clear, story-telling features. When in the headspace of artist, he is more inclined to maximise the emotional pull of a composition through colour, form, texture or line. As time goes on, and especially in the digital world, he is more inclined to work in solitude and in a calm space, where his own emotions in the moment are skillfully incorporated in the production of the image.
While at the point of capture, he can apply a full gambit of techniques to realise these objectives, he can also apply additional emotional effect during the post-production process. As a photographer/publisher, he sees words as being essential and complementary to his story-telling processes.
