frances1
 f FRANCES WING: Frances settled in Redcliffe, with her husband and five children, in June 1983 after arriving from Scotland. Although Frances has always had a desire to paint, with work and family commitments she found little time to do so until the last ten years or so. She joined the Redcliffe Art Society in 2003 and this gave her the motivation to fully become involved in her art. She was also the President of the Redcliffe Art Society (RAS) from November 2004 until July 2006.

Whilst Frances has not undertaken any formal art training, she has attended a number of classes and seminars over the years. She loves trying new techniques and finds the use of colour exciting.

Lisa_Dirie f LISA DIRIE: Lisa, a local Brisbane artist, is quickly carving a niche for herself with her instantly recognisable ceramic work.

With ceramic Green-ware as her canvas, Lisa creates resplendent, unique, and individual pieces that compliment any decor and serve a myriad of functions. Vases, Platters, Plates, Jewellery Boxes and Lamps are just some examples of what you can expect to see within Lisa's range of collectables. Her signature style is bright and bold, blending comic book imagery with the fun accents of pop art, and even though the pop art inspired girls are her favourite to paint, her work is varied to meet the current styles and trends, ensuring it caters to every taste. Each image that Lisa Dirie creates is as much the work of a devotee of pop culture, as that of an observer of life in general.
Lisa has also won a number of arts grants and prizes including champion, first and second prizes at the Redcliffe Agricultural Show, highly commended in the Seaside Artists Gallery Annual Art prize in 2010 and first, second and third prizes in the RNA show – Ceramics Section over a number of years.

I believe painting is about story-telling and artists express their thoughts, ideas and emotions through color, shapes and light. My love of travel provides endless inspiration for my paintings. Splendid colors lift our spirits and soothe our souls, and when I know my art has touched someone in this way I am forever grateful I can share my gift with others.” See more of Winnie’s work here: http://www.winnie.luk.com.au/

She was born in New Zealand, where she spent several years studying photography and developing black & white photos. It was photographing the constantly changing landscape and exciting coastline that lead her to explore texture and movement with paint, with composition and light being strong elements in her work. Since moving to Australia in 2003, Nicole has gained experience by exploring techniques with acrylic, oils and water colour. Whilst largely self-taught, she has also attended workshops with inspirational artists such as Charles Moodie, Joseph Zbukvic, Amanda Hyatt and Herman Pekel, all of whom encouraged her to extend herself as an artist. Nicole enjoys bringing out patterns and moods in her subjects rather than making exact copies as she used to do through photography.

Nicole has previously exhibited at Eagles Nest Gallery on the Great Ocean Road and through local art shows, winning several awards, including the Best Painting (acrylic) award at the 2011 Immanuel College Art Show. In 2010, she helped set up and run a small working studio/gallery ; ‘Gallery Ten’, on the Sunshine Coast. Nicole currently paints outdoors in impressionist styles or works on commissions in her home studio.

 f MYCHAEL TRANTERN: Mychael Trantern provides life thoughts in a visual context or creates ‘visual poetry’, which are sold at the Seaside Artists’ Gallery. In Mychael’s view; art is everywhere, in everything you see and say. An artist or a poet freezes a moment of the moving picture of life and transfers it to the frame or canvas. His preferred focus is on the deeper meanings and currents of life. He is in his 70’s and self-taught in calligraphy. He writes his own poetry, which he describes as being “Pisces-driven”. Using a combination of his words and colour he creates a visual fusion in a frame and he feels this is an ideal mode of expression of his artistic side. Mychael has had exhibitions and commissions in England before settling in Australia.

He has studied people in the cities, coastal towns and the resilient characters of the Outback. In his travels, he has met people from all walks of life including farmers, townies, bushies, drovers and miners. He has developed a fascination for Aboriginal people, their landscape and their culture and a number of his works reflect the art studies he has completed in Indigenous communities. Alan has also travelled extensively overseas, including France, Germany, Italy and the UK, which is also reflected in his painting. He has also written a book called ‘Vivian and Rebecca’, which he hopes to have published soon and hopes will further increase interest in his paintings.

James_Steele

 f JAMES STEELE: James has always had an artistic drive but in his youth this was never developed or channelled into a career path. After leaving school early and trying his hand at numerous unfulfilling jobs, he returned to study and completed a diploma in education.Rather than taking snapshots of his experiences James was drawn to composing images, often quite abstract, through the rectangular dimensions of the camera’s viewfinder. He has continued to work in this way and while the natural environment provides an endless source of inspiration, he also enjoys seeing and composing his images in manmade surroundings. In more recent years James has completed courses in graphic design and digital photography to enhance his technical skill. He has won prizes in local art and photography competitions and has been a finalist in the Brisbane Lord Mayors Photographic Awards and Lethbridge 10 000 Art Prize.

john_chadwick_bio_copy f JOHN CHADWICK: After completing high school, John Chadwick pursued his passion for art by completing a four year diploma at the Brisbane College of Art. This diploma covered graphic design and fine art subjects, such as: colour studies, life drawing, figure painting and illustration. During this time, John had the good fortune to be mentored by Percy Eagles, an illustrator renowned for his hand-drawn movie posters, and Roy Churcher, the artist in residence. Whilst his career as an Art Director flourished in advertising and commercial art, his passion for expression on canvas continued to burn brightly. So whilst advertising provided great opportunities for John to use different styles and demonstrate the relationship between visual art and consumers, behind the scenes he continued his passion for painting and experimented with different styles. His art today has been influenced by his life experiences and his experimentation with pop art, traditional painting, surrealism, expressionism and impressionism.  John has been an entrant in the 2011 Archibald Prize and completed a mural at the Caboolture Hospital's Paediatric Outpatient Clinic in 2012. Much of John's work has been commissioned privately and his works are part of many private and corporate collections.
