Vive la Difference

Artist Statement—Paula Mitchell

Paula had her first foray into art doing Silk Painting which inspired her to do abstract art as the profusion of colour was so intense and free. She later went on to do Folk Art which was her introduction to acrylics. Now working with acrylics and mixed media on canvas in forms, mostly abstract, she is inspired by the colour around us in our lives.

She has attended various workshops and classes in acrylic and watercolour with reputable tutors and her art is a work in progress.

Paula is a member of the Redcliffe Art Society and has exhibited her artwork at Redcliffe Art Society exhibitions and also Seaside Artist Gallery.

Artist Statement—Joy Hogarth

I have always had a leaning towards the creative side of my brain and it was by accident about five years ago, when I attended a friend’s art workshop (wine, coffee and salsa music being the drawcard), that a discovery came about. That was the realisation that I enjoyed painting .. oil on canvas being my medium of choice.

Shortly after this discovery, I joined the Redcliffe Art Society and began a new journey. I haven’t looked back since. I found another path opening up to me which included an introduction into the exciting world of the art community.

I would recommend to anyone with a semblance of artistic talent, to also embark on this journey.

Artist Statement—Bee Simpson

Bee began her journey into art as a watercolourist but over time, found herself leaning towards mixed media, acrylics and collage.

Her paintings just evolve as she progresses through the creation. To paint this way is harder but more satisfying for her.

She has attended many workshops with some very well known and reputable tutors and her work is now an amalgamation of these experiences.

“Art is so much fun and along the way you meet so many creative and like minded people. Take the time to try it, you may amaze yourself. “

Bee did.
