CHRIS DOWE

 Artist

Chris spent his youth in Sydney and studied art at East Sydney Technical College in the seventies. Chris continued his study with life drawing and pottery classes during his working life.

Chris moved with his wife to a rural property in 1990 west of Wingham where landscapes were his inspiration. 'My wife was knitting complicated and colorful blankets. Her tumbling blocks pattern caught my eye which lead me to many geometric abstracts. Moving to Elizabeth Beach I have continued with abstracts and local beach and bush paintings'

HILARY HATFIELD

 Artist

Living in the UK, South Africa and Australia sharply influenced Hilary's appreciation of nature's diversity. A love of texture and exuberant colour are the keystones of her work. Australia presents a vibrant palette from the Outback to its beaches. Texture and form can be found in a dry river bed or where a bright yellow flower struggles for water in the crevices of a granite boulder. As an artist Hilary is compelled to respond to this wonderful diversity of form and colour.

 

Over time Hilary's painting has shifted from oils to acrylics. In a similar fashion her style moved from realism to abstraction. Each work has a life of its own. Her creative process involves turning the canvas multiple times while she is working and the result is often a piece which can be hung vertically or horizontally. 'I want to leave my work open to the imagination and invite the viewer to create their own individual interpretation.'

DEAN HUGHES

 Artist

Dean's love of art is underpinned by his training in art from St George and Gymea Art Colleges back in the 1980s.

 

Our beautiful natural environment and the local history of this area provides Dean with inspiration to complete abstract design and reality works.

LINDA TITOW

 Artist

Linda graduated from the national school of arts in South Africa 1990 and studied as a textile designer thereafter. Now Linda paints for the love of it and work as a cosmetic tattoo artist.

 

Linda's paintings are a combination of her textile design background and her love of all the fauna and flora of Forster in particular birds. Linda's style is decorative and mainly consists of oil painting but she does experiment with other mediums. 'Even though I have tried loose abstract work I always land up adding detail and intricate patterns, my brain must be very complicated?'
