Di Cox

Di‘s art draws on her intuitive creativity, inspired by nature and reflecting the uniquely Australian light and colour that have saturated her being. Just as Di’s spirit is influenced by her idyllic childhood, growing up in rural north Queensland where freedom and promise abounded, so is her design approach.

Meghana Wagholikar

Meghana is a Brisbane based artist who is immensely inspired by art and artists around the world. Born in India, she migrated to Australia in 2005.

Her love and passion for art took off in 2019 which saw her pursuing art as a full fledged career and business.

Wendy Goode

Wendy is a sewist, a textile artist and an all-round lover of fabrics.

She is fascinated by what she can create with fabrics, leather, vinyl, buttons, lace, beads, ribbons, and trims.
Her goal is to create functional items, such as bags of all shapes and sizes; cushions and soft furnishings; unique clothing pieces; accessories such as neck pieces and brooches; and book and diary covers for both writing and visual purposes.

Natalie Oldham

Australian born, Natalie Oldham identifies as a Universal Citizen. Four years being the longest time living in one country.

Connection to family, nature and artistic creation became central to her sense of belonging.

Natalie’s earliest experience with clay was squatting around a Raku pit fire with her father John Hackwell, and his Art mentor Morris Kennedy. 6407ft up in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. She does not hold a degree in Visual Art, nor does she claim to be self-taught. Principles and techniques in Art were learnt from many artists over the years.

To the sound of birds in her open-air studio in Brisbane, Natalie’s medium of choice is now clay. Echoes of rich visual and multicultural memories, come to life in her contemporary pieces.

Alexandria Collins

I started enamelling at a very young age; I've continued the art throughout my childhood, and now into my twenties. I mostly enamel in the Japanese style, liking the repeating patterns and the finish that you get from such a fine style.

Having been able to do workshops in both Australia and Japan have given me a chance to experiment with different styles and techniques. I have focused more on cloisonné in my collection and for my wall piece.

I have gathered most of my inspiration for this exhibit from the abundance of colour and pattern found in patchwork quilts.

I do hope you enjoy my work.

Christina Davidsson

I am a self-taught artist, who started painting at the age of 50 when my company underwent a restructure during the pandemic. My paintings are painted with acrylic and mixed media. I paint intuitively and completely from my heart. It’s abstract art and the viewer has to decide what they see in my paintings. I love being out in nature and this is usually where I get my inspiration.

Lyn Spence

I have been embroidering and knitting since I was very young. My work has evolved as I have learnt new techniques, projects start as a concept and develop as I go along. I identify with the broad Textile Art Tribe, I use multiple materials and techniques to make a mix of decorative and functional items.
I am interested in how creative expression can enhance health and wellbeing. I love Pablo Picasso’s statement - ‘art washes away from the soul the dust of everyday life…’ . I have a desire to help others use creativity to express themselves when other forms of communication are inadequate. I make what I enjoy and hope you enjoy it too.

Stacey Morrison

Biography coming soon.

Magaly Martell

I am passionate about clay. I hand
build playful, inviting objects that celebrate the beauty of clay
and add a feel of warmth and familiarity to the spaces we inhabit.
In this work I combined the soft earthy feel of clay and the strength and pliability of reed to create forms and surface treatments that carry a tactile connection with nature.

Nicci Morgan

Nicci is a professional potter based on Mt Tamborine on the Gold Coast hinterland. She sells her work under her brand PJ Pottery. Her current focus is on creating bespoke teapots often with a Steampunk flavour.
