Bethany Treanor

An emerging artist and full time visual arts student, I strive to to be sustainable by using recycled, reusable and up cycled materials, and when needed, I source new materials locally.

Description

I use a range of media, oil sticks, pastels, acrylic and oil paints and paper mache sculpture. My first love is oil sticks and pastels. I use these in my emotional landscapes. These drawings use blending, rhythm and harmonious balance to show you what I feel when I capture a moment in the scenery around me. They evoke rather than provoke, allowing you to to be embraced by the emotion of the moment.

Description

Beach-combing on a remote Far Northern section of The Great Barrier Reef, gave me opportunity to take a special photo that has now made its way into my artwork.

It was the catalyst to commence a marine inspired theme called “overboard”. A small cottage in Margaret River has been in the process of renovation during the past 12 months and an art studio has emerged. I now have a home for my artworks and space to paint in a pretty little piece of Margaret River.

Cecile Rigoli

I like building art within the art, completing what's existing, bringing the common into a new world.

Description

Being a professionnel picture framer gives me the chance to meet many artists, art lovers and creative people and I often have to answer The question "are you an artist yourself ? " My truthful answer would be that I like telling stories through various forms of art, mixing a range of media and poetry. 

Chloe Wilder

Chloe Wilder is yet another Margaret River blow in from a small and extraordinarily exotic country off the East coast of Australia.

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

Her current body of work is focusing on the modern female portrait. In her large scale oil paintings, Chloe attempts to connect with women who display an air of strength and hunts down faces on social media.

It seems a tad odd of her to paint people she doesn’t know and to expect you to be impressed by her renditions of those who mean squat to you, but that is the whole point. What inspires a painter? Can you communicate a feeling? Is it the same feeling for everyone? What is the connection between the artist and the muse? How is that connection forged between people sometimes on opposite sides of the world? What even is a portrait in the era of selfie culture?

Chris Spiker

Enthusiastic collectors of Chris’s watercolours are located throughout Australia and overseas. In 2017 Chris was Artist in Gallery at Aspects of Kings Park for the annual Spring Festival.

Description

Bird watching from a young age in central Victoria; having a natural inclination to paint in watercolours; mixed with working as a design draftsman for many years, led to Chris becoming a fine watercolour artist of birds and landscapes. was trained to use a Crow-Quill pen nib that was just so fine: and it may be that training that stayed with me when even using a fine kolinsky brush decades later.

Each painting is designed to achieve: an attractive picture; technically reliable portrayal of the birds and flora; high quality workmanship; and most importantly to increase appreciation and ultimately the conservation of Western Australian birds.

Along with producing fine art originals, we produce a complimenting range of Limited Edition and Open Prints and greeting cards.

Christine Cresswell

Influenced by my grandmother - a keen gardener, plant lover and painter of wildflowers - I have created a collection of botanical watercolours of both exotic and native plants of this area.

Description

Christine has always been a keen gardener and in the last ten years has developed an interest in painting the plants that she finds in her garden. Having undertaken the Master Gardener course at Burnley in Melbourne and Botanical Illustration courses at the Royal Botanic Gardens, her special interest lies in capturing, in complete detail, the characteristics of the plants that she is painting. In addition, she likes to draw the plants at different stages of seasonal development as they go from bud to flower to seed.

Elizabeth Whiteman

Luscious, buttery oils are my medium. Colour is my language. Multi-layered, colour-drenched canvases. I seek to expand my vocabulary and tell stories that move me.

Description

Stories of vulnerability and fragility. How this provokes such a diverse range of human response, from the desire to nurture and protect, to discard as worthless, through to perverse exploitation and abuse for personal gain…

Nudes figure prominently in my paintings – naked, intimate, private. I want to gently peak behind the mask, reveal what’s hidden, raw, laid bare, exposed, both in the subject matter and in the human response. The exposed becomes the exposer.

Fi Wilkie

Fi Wilkie is a Painter based in Margaret River where she has lived and worked for over 25 years. In addition to spending her time as a full time artist, she works with non artists, lapsed artists and budding artists to develop and engage with their own creative thinking. Her Workshops aim to build confidence, lose fear, and to help the participant get to know more about themselves, how they work and how to listen to their own intuitive selves.

Description

Fi has been busy dreaming, imagining, problem solving and pitching ideas since she was 4. Her usual comment, as a young child, to any loving gift giver was – ‘what other colours did they have’! She has a background in Design and loves colour, shape and pattern.

Her process of creating is always evolving, she starts her work with a big random ‘mess’ and then works how to clarify and ‘find’ the painting within it. It seems to reflect the mess of life, the uncontrollable elements, the parts we need to let go of and just allow. The work of bringing it under control – turning it into something that makes sense is the journey each painting goes thru. Fi never plans her images, she lets them evolve – so she can enjoy the surprise and see what will happen – continuing to work on them until there doesn’t seem to be anything left to do.

Gabe Heussenstamm

  • Open Days:By Appointment Only

Description

A ‘love of lines’ (remanent from her 25yr career in drafting) but still aparent to her in the vineyards, and also now appearing very significantly in her minimalistic style of life drawing, evokes emotion and atmosphere. A recent trip to India now adds ‘colour’ to the mix!

Jenny produces a wide range of work for which she has won numerous awards. Her work can be viewed at Xanadu Winery and Jahroc Galleries

Description

A multifaceted interdisciplinary approach led Kashmir Rouw on a journey through the arts from the physical to the conceptual. Inspired by a deep connection to the environment. Infused with geometric patterns. A desire to translate these sacred principals.

His art conceives a reality below the physical surface. A space of reflection and timelessness. A mirror to our own fragility. His iconic sculptural stone forms grace the coastal landscape of Margaret River’s Gnarabup and Mainbreak  – “Wave Wall”, “Spiral”, “Shellta” and “Refuge”.

Laurie Posa

Description

Laurie likes to temper these painterly observations with irony and sometimes dark humour, leaving the interpretation of the work to the viewer: for example, a horizon line could be a part of the simple landscape or a plane of your sub-conscious filled with metaphors. Posa's work is held in public and private collections in Australia and overseas.

Leon Pericles

Leon and his wife Moira divide their time between Perth and their studio in Margaret River.

Liv Vardy

<p> Mood and motion became recurring themes in these early acrylic works. Liv's style has since developed into expressive colourful pieces using layers and intricate brush strokes to create texture and interest. The works are mostly in acrylics or oils and range from small detailed pieces, to larger works that bring life into a space. After building a successful body of work, Liv has earned acclaim in exhibitions and competitions locally.</p>

Peter Moir

My art arises from my desire to express my love of country - the dynamic South West Coast and forests surrounding my Margaret River home; the vibrant colours and rugged beauty of the Pilbara and our North West.

Description

Depicting the human form is one of the most challenging, rewarding things for an artist to attempt, and one of the most difficult. In working from life, I don't want to idealise or objectify, but to capture the changing shapes and shadows of the body as every model brings her own energy and charm to the work. My littoral paintings try to show the forces which sculpt the dunes and shore, to accurately depict the living ecology of the beach. Locations range the entire WA coast, each place with its unique colours and geology. I use diverse media; painting, sketching, as well as sculpting wood and metal. I enjoy giving workshops and lessons to small groups by request and undertake commissions including portraits.

Description

Travels to Europe and the Middle East in his early days and time spent in Broome and remote W.A. Islands and the Kimberley region has inspired his strong use of colour and semi-abstract style. His continuing inspiration comes from living in Margaret River since 1996, where the local bush and coastal areas feature strongly in his paintings.

The winter getaways driving north to Ningaloo and beyond with his lovely creative partner Anette. A 6-meter roll of canvas, paints, surfboards, fishing lines and supplies for a couple of weeks in the 4WD has always invigorated his creative juices and love of painting in situ. To look at the paintings created up north upon their arrival back to Margaret River takes him back to the place he started the paintings up north and the colour palette used up there are very rich and raw and he generally achieves 4-5 paintings on each trip.

Phil was born and bred in Perth and as a school leaver was offered a position in Diploma of Fine Arts course in 1973, recommended by his art teacher, Nigel Thompson 91997 Archibald Prize Winner). He opted for a plumbing apprenticeship for financial stability. He moved to Broome in 1986 and by 1989 was painting seriously. On his return to Perth in 1991, Phil was accepted into the W.A School of Art –Claremont and began a full-time Art and Design diploma in 1992.

By 1995 Phil became involved in solo and group exhibitions and several art clubs and spent 3 months in Sydney exhibiting work at various markets and galleries. His paintings have been sold to residents throughout Australia and overseas including England, Ireland, Germany, Spain, France, Hong Kong and Singapore. Phil now exhibits and proudly sells his artwork from his studio in the Old Stables at 3 Glenellie Road Margaret River where he has resided since 2001.

He also displays his artworks at various wineries in the region. Phil has been a member of the Margaret River Artisans since 2001 and has had many group exhibitions including Vasse Felix and Leeuwin Estate Winery.

45, part-time painter. Acrylic on canvas. Trying to bring the lightness of sketching onto the canvas. Painting as a protest, painting as a release. Catching the effect of time on our surroundings. Also, you can't live in the Southwest and stay away from landscapes for very long, so a bit of that too.

She wants to share her love of this beautiful area by creating paintings that celebrate the culture and landscape: be it grapevines, hearing the sound of a waterfall, seeing the tall stand of trees creating rhythm and repetition in a forest setting, seeing the waves rolling in, tasting that first sip of opulent, silky red or seeing whales playing in the ocean. Skye says that “the hours disappear when I have a brush or pen in my hand and I am doing what I love.”
