April featured Artists:
Lisa Gregg – A modern contemporary artist enjoying life and art on the gorgeous Sunshine Coast. Lisa’s style is bold, colourful and happy, including life drawing, landscapes, seascapes, flowers and foliage. She paints in oils, acrylics, watercolours and mixed media. Lisa says “I just love to paint and love the thought of my work colouring the walls of the world”. So far Lisa’s paintings have found homes in Dubai, India, Thailand, Germany, Samoa, New Zealand and throughout Australia. Lisa believes everyone deserves an original work of art to enjoy!
Barbara Keats - Barbara grew up in Newcastle and loved drawing and painting as a child. Later, other things took precedence, including becoming a nurse and being married with 4 children. Barbara then moved to Wollongong and was invited to join a porcelain painting class. Barbara says “That was it! I loved the way you could push paint around on the slippery surface of the china and then wipe it all off if not satisfied. Special effects can be achieved by painting in stages, firing, and over painting”. Barbara formed the Wollongong group of China Painters and was involved in the International Porcelain Art Teachers, (IPAT) group from 1975 and participated in the very first Australasian exhibition in Sydney, plus exhibitions all around Australia. Many pieces have been collected by people both here and overseas. Barbara Says “Forty odd years later with so many different techniques available, I need several lifetimes to explore all the ideas whizzing around in my head”.
