Annie Georgeson, Artist
Annie Georgeson has returned to painting in recent years after a long and successful career in textile design and artworks. Many of these have been exhibited by major galleries and museums such as Powerhouse Museum, Sydney and The Art Institute of Chicago. As a student with the late Florence Broadhurst, who encouraged Annie Georgeson’s painting and art, many screenprinted paintings were done for major projects. The inspiration for Annie Georgeson’s art has always been based on the landscape, its detail, textures, colors and elements, particularly Australia.
Gail English, Artist
Original Artworks by Gail English.
Gail looks to water and the ocean for inspiration. Prior to that her influence came from the landscape where she was raised. “I am instinctively drawn back to the landscape of wheat crops near Young, the patterns and the soft colours left on the earth after harvest. Gail was a finalist in the Country Energy Art Prize in 2003, 2005 and 2007
Bronwyn Brenton, Artist
Bronwyn Brenton is a Bellingen artist who divides her time between looking after her 2 young children, art classes for kids and developing her own unique style which involves working with mixed media, layers and quirky characters that symbolise activities of day to day life.
Judy Bray, Artist
After 30 years in Sydney, flat out in an architectural career of straight lines, demanding clients and deadlines, this collection of paintings and drawings celebrate Judy Bray’s liberation from full time work.
Each peice is part of her on going experimentation to
develop a personal style.
Judy Bray’s infuences are mainly her wide circle of inspiring and creative friends… they often meet up and paint together. Her teachers both at Sydney University Architecture School and more recently at Kempsey Tafe School of Visual Arts have been both challenging and encouraging…
Judy Bray thanks them all… Judy Bray can not imagine a life without the enormous and ever elusive challenge of attempting to draw/paint/interpret the world around her.
Sally Horton Artist
From 1969 Sally Horton travelled extensively throughout Europe studying drawing & design.
Sally Horton’s interest in botanical subjects led to commissions for London-based interior designers, for Asprey’s, for members of the British Royal family and for the Museum of London. Sally’s work also became highly sought after in the United States where clients included the Disney family. In 1990, Sally returned from Europe to live in Sydney. From this base she has worked throughout the Asia/Pacific region on large-scale decorative interiors.
Projects included interiors for the Sultan of Brunei; the CHOGM venues in Auckland; the Christchurch Casino, New Zealand; Melbourne’s Crown Casino and the Lakehouse Resort in Bali. Sally Horton now works from her studio in Whale Beach, NSW. Since 1997 she has had solo exhibitions at Parliament House, Sydney and consistently at galleries on the northern beaches.
Over the past few years, having finally honed her drawing and technical skills, Sally has immersed herself in painting in response to her environment, her emotions and her passions.
