Painters




Tania Heben working on her painting depicting Torres Strait pigeons.

TANIA HEBEN has been painting in Port Douglas for more than twenty years. Although proficient in other mediums, she loves the sensuality and richness of using oil paint above all others. It usually takes some months for her to complete a painting because of the slow process of drying and curing each layer of paint, so she often has several paintings in a series in progress at any one time.

Jill Booth

JILL BOOTH has been involved in art all her life - from childhood scribblings to art teaching, to watercolours, textiles, oil and acrylic paintings - even to designing and making her own range of silver jewellery and operating her family's gallery of fine art. These days she concentrates on developing paintings and collages as well as producing a range of silk and cotton fabric lengths and luxurious silk scarves.

Terry Johnson at work in his garden studio

TERRY JOHNSON paints happiness - happy people enjoying themselves, the lighter side of life and all the magic that it has to offer. His tropical pictures are colourful and exuberant, their subjects ranging from drawings of angels and flowers to beach scenes, with paintings of fish cavorting through the sky while seagulls squawk and run about on white, sun-kissed sands.

Mary Ann Runciman


MARY ANN RUNCIMAN draws and paints from life, her subjects usually being people - figure drawing, portraits of characters that she meets, and boats, whose architectural complexities fascinate her.

Ross Bannister with koi paintings

ROSS BANNISTER has travelled widely, especially in Asian countries, absorbing their cultures and drawing conclusions about their universal spirituality, which he expresses in sculptures and paintings.

Trained in Malaysia and Australia, his current absorbing interest is painting idealised portraits and teaching sculpture locally.

Judith Bohm-Parr

JUDITH BOHM-PARR's favourite glass medium seems to be pate-de-verre, at which she excels.

But she also enjoys fusing and slumping clear and opaque glass to make her characteristic Reef and Rainforest series of bowls and plates, perfect for personal and corporate gifts.

Judith has a strong following for her regular workshops, which cover lamp glass skills as well.

She shares her observations in beautifully crafted reduction lino-prints for all to enjoy.

BEAT URFER

Australian Artists of the Tropics

Art in Tropical Australia Home Page






The work of established artists is in demand, with past clients waiting to snap up their latest paintings, original prints, textiles or sculptures.

If you are a collector of a particular artist you may find his or her work here, or else you could ask me to source it for you.

Newer artists are less well known - which is another way you may catch a bargain. Keep a lookout for emerging artists, whose work may appreciate in value; but when that happens, of course, you will love it too much to part with it!
