Norton (aka Retritus) is a queer Indigenous sustainable fibre artist who specialises in the ancient art of wet felt making and botanical dyes. He only uses natural fibres and works closely with Australian native plants to unlock their dye potential.
His work focusses on the sustainability of his artistic footprint while being inspired directly by materiality and his connection to country.
Cassi Ashton Thomas
Thomas' work is a constant search for the best way to interpret the ideas that she has about herself and the world she lives in.
Removing limitations of artistic medium, style and concept; with each piece Thompson creates an extension from the past, that speaks to where she has come from and what she has learned, as well as creating a preview of the future which looks to where she is going.
PJ Pottery is the love child of Nicci Parry-Jones — a potter of almost 30 years.
Her ceramics are a joyful and colourful mix of thrown forms, quirky teapots, whimsical sculptures and planters which embrace and explore the infinite possibilities of clay.
Representative of her carefree and exploratory painting style, Lhamo’s works are intuitive, spontaneous and layered with expression and hidden meaning.
The spirit of landscapes — both real and imagined — is a key source of inspiration for Lhamo.
Goldsmith’s expressionist and colourful paintings weave together the vitality of the Gold Coast with the tranquillity of the mountain.
She paints from the heart with the aim of simplification and directness: “When I draw and paint it is for you, the viewer. If it pleases you, it is that your soul is running in tangent with mine.”
McGeough’s signature painting style is inspired by nature, the Australian landscape and the people that reside on the lands.
Her works are characterised by a bold, gestural style which explores luminous colour, texture and fluid line to capture the spirit or essence of a person or place.
Bronwyn's work reflects her concerns around the climate emergency, her observations of change, and the wonder of the natural environment from the minute to the grand.
With 30 years in the arts sector and with a love of painting, she now works full time in her arts studio on Tamborine Mountain.
Marcia and Nicola are two passionate hobbyist potters that make up MarNic Pottery. They combine their talents and excitement for sharing the love to make beautiful handmade ceramics.
