"I have been painting for as long as I can remember, exploring my style and experimenting with a vast range of mediums to hone my skill while constantly drawing inspiration from my surroundings on the beautiful south coast. My style reflects my passion for nature and organic forms with a focus on the intricate details of our local rock pools and the terrain of lush rolling hills which surround my home in Bery. I work with acrylic and oil on canvas to capture the beauty I see around me through use of colour and texture, creating a story of detailed patterns and shape to reflect my local landscape. I hope to evoke a sense of curiosity through my paintings, drawing the viewer in to explore the journey on the canvas."View collection

Completing a Bachelor of Fine Art at Caulfield Institute of Technology (Monash University 1985) majoring in Printmaking and Painting with a Graduate Diploma in Art Education at Victoria College Burwood (1987). She now specialises in still life working with oils on stretched canvas.
Alicia spent many years working in the antiques and vintage industry for interior design with her own business before moving to painting full time. Now she enjoys incorporating this knowledge into her artworks - an amalgamation of natural forms against and with vintage design elements. Her works vary from bright and bold designs to softer pastels with strong lines and layerings of glaze with an eye for detail.
She has exhibited and sold her work throughout Australia and overseas and is represented by several galleries in Australia.
Alicia's studio is surrounded by 100 year old gardens and the Dandenong Ranges Botanic Gardens just a step away along with national parks and public gardens. From this she draws inspiration in both colour and form for her artworks. Seasonal changes are brought to the fullest where she lives so there is always much to choose from.View collection

Amanda Ogilby is an emerging artist who works primarily in oils. She grew up influenced by the pastel and charcoal drawings of her artistic father. Amanda now paints fulltime in her home studio overlooking the bush, in Margaret River, Western Australia.
A representational painter, Amanda delights in the texture of oil paint and her ability to manipulate layers of colour in her art. She relishes this medium's qualities, slowly building up tone and form of the objects in her compositions. Through close observation, Amanda focuses on light, reflection and shadow and how they intermingle with objects and botanical influences.
Amanda's art is in response to her immediate surroundings and home. She seeks and finds inspiration from personal treasures, objects old and new each with stories and reminders of precious memories, the final composition often depicted with floral elements which strive to depict a sense of serenity and peace.
Angela lives rurally running a 4000-acre grazing property near Yetman NSW as well as her and her husband’s camping business on the river. She can often be found working on her verandah, surrounded by pets, birds and her beautiful garden and, within this space, she likes to just go with the flow and is never quite sure what is going to turn up! Her love of working with clay began around 10 years ago after completing a sculpting class, before studying art at TAFE and participating in many clay workshops to discover her own unique style. The techniques used to create her beautiful works include slab, coiling and wheel throwing and her style has a relaxed, rustic and organic feel with a rewarding focus on both functionality and beauty. Angela often works intuitively with the clay, not always having an outcome in mind but letting the clay piece evolve to take on its own form. “There is no better feeling than to take a lump of clay and through many processes, turn it into something functional and beautiful.” It is this unique style that has enabled Angela to have her works exhibited in Goondiwindi, Texas, Inverell, Moree, Taroom, and a number of local galleries and shops across Australia.
