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
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.
Painters, jewellers and textilers
LINDA JACKSON, famous for her
partnership with Jenny Kee and the wonderfully productive "Flamingo
Park" and then "Bush Couture" fashion boutiques, moved to live in North
Queensland in 2000.
She has continued her involvement with indigenous women as
teacher and collaborator, whilst developing new paintings and fabric
lengths as well as a range of stunning opal jewelry.

ANNA CURTIS loves working in her beautiful new studio, near a rainforest creek in Port Douglas, North Queensland.
Here she ponders the mysteries of Life and explores the magic of plant life in her carefully tended garden and the wild rainforest beyond.
Anna shares her observations in beautifully crafted reduction lino-prints for all to enjoy.
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 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.
Glass artists and painters
OLA and MARIE HOGLUND spend the beautiful tropical winters at their studio hideaway in the rainforest, north of Port Douglas. Here they find inspiration for their stunning art glass forms and jewellery, which are often developed collaboratively.
YOSHIKO KIRBY paints ideas - connections with other souls, dream stories and memories. But at times she just paints happy scenes of the tropical landscape where she lives.
Online art exhibitions continue:
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'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.
BEAT URFER tells stories, working in the exciting and exacting medium of vitrified glass enamel. He inserts these 'jewels' into his acrylic paintings in such a way that the enamel details illustrate parts of each story that he tells.
Please follow the image links to these artists' online art exhibitions and contact them direct via the forms provided.
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!
