Presenting a new collection of large floral works Cecily Slade explores the intricate beauty and harmonies that exist in the fine details within nature. These works are statement pieces, they command a space and create an atmosphere in the home. Design, aesthetics and structure are paramount in her work and viewers are invited to sink into the work like a meditation and open their heart to the beauty and life energy within the bloom. These paintings offer peace, tranquillity and joy.

Catherine Hamilton Jones aims to capture the unique light, contrasts and striking colour combinations found in Australian Landscapes and along our coastlines. She often draws inspiration from places around Queensland that she has visited and to which she an emotional connection. With each new painting, she likes the challenge of capturing the detail of a scene whilst maintaining a feeling of immediacy and freshness in the work. Catherine's aim is to create artworks that trigger a feeling of recognition or connection, but ultimately provide a sense of enjoyment and an escape for the viewer.

Lin Stanton’s work as an intuitive abstractionist is a multi-layered feast of intelligent complexity and clever use of colour portraying a lifetime’s experience as an artist who is just now coming into her most interesting evolution. Her new collection of abstract works entitled “The Scribblers” uses trees as a thematic inspiration. Her characteristic hard edge style combines with softer statements and mark making producing works that are both organic and very different.
