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 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 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.
All of Leisa’s works are influenced by her local surroundings (Booloumba Creek) as she tries to capture the essence of this 325 million year old valley in all her work. Using rocks, sand, clay, ochre, ash, wood and local species of rainforest foliage. Other media is acrylic, graphite, natural fibres and glass. All work is one of a kind and completely unique. Leisa offers workshops for adults or children’s parties, festivals or just for personal development.
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.
