    Teresa Byrne

    Teresa has been drawing and painting all her life. Her childhood in England was surrounded with horses and other animals, which has influenced her art practice. Portraiture, human and animal, is a large part of her practice, while still lifes are a chance to explore light, colour, form and composition. She also occasionally likes to indulge a more tongue in cheek approach.

    Hanna Kay

    Hanna Kay was born in Israel, studied art in Vienna, lived a decade in New York, before finally settling in Blandford in the Upper Hunter Region. She has exhibited extensively in the art capitals of Europe, the USA, and Australia and her art is found in many public and private collections in Australia and around the world.

    Hanna’s artworks are inspired by encounters with the natural world, with much of her work focused on exploring man’s relationship with the landscape. Through it, she has come to recognise nature’s significance to humanity, and the belief that the landscape is an essential element in the formation of a culture’s distinctiveness.

    Landscape artist Jean Davies began her serious artistic journey in 1987 when she came to live in Murrurundi in the Upper Hunter Region – an area abounds in subject matter that Jean never tires of spending time in. Jean works in the landscape ‘en plein air’ to produce artworks in the mediums of watercolour, pastel and ink that share with the viewer her love of the Upper Hunter.

    Sue Lawson

    Sue has been a practicing artist on an off for almost forty years. She works across a wide range of mediums. In her latest body of work Sue explores miniature scale, using it to capture fragments of life frozen in time.
    The themes for Sue’s work comes from a varied source – things seen, heard, read, experiences and imagined. Some pieces have a whimsical note to them while others carry a more serious undertone.
    The journey through the construction of her works leads Sue to be able to explore, experiment and push boundaries with a variety of objects and materials, which play an important part in bringing the narrative into play.
