Australia's leading raw food gourmet chef Cat Cannizzaro from WildRaw will share her culinary delights at the waRAW launch on 6th February. Cat's food, recipes, chocolates and food styling are sought out around the world, and focus on simple and seasonal ingredients. About the artists: Mitzi Smith, a multi-award-winning Fremantle artist, with a background in fine art and graphic design, uses vibrant colour and techniques to create abstracted and semi-abstracted works which capture the patterned WA landscape. 

 Robyn Varpins' 30-year career has produced artworks in stained glass, mosaics and painting, with a core passion in raku-clay sculptures. These artworks explore the essence of the human condition and Robyn has won numerous awards for her works. Lynda Fynn Dickinson (“Elfynn”), winner of the Alfred Cove Awards of Excellence in Mixed Media in 2014, endeavours to encapsulate the emotion we feel when on holiday in WA's unique places. 

Lynda uses mixed media and sculptural techniques to express the physicality of the environment and to convey her emotional reaction to the ancient landscaped of WA. Roger Dickinson uses film and digital photography , and a range of computer technologies to create his artworks. Many of Roger's works exploit the rich colour palette of the Gascoyne, Pilbara and Kimberley regions of WA, with his latest range including a tribute series to famous artists, but with a Western Australian flavour.
