REVIEWS
It was excellent. The class made me so aware of realizing just how much beauty there is in the depth perception of the city scape and landscape all around me. As I was driving about after the class I could not take my eye off of all shapes and angles. Simon explained to me how to use a few techniques to create arches, focal points and properly begin with drawing buildings and structures.

It was nice meeting Samantha, she gave me a few options as we sat and got acquainted. She gave me freedom to sketch what ever. I opted to draw several settings around the part. I was challenged to press myself in a couple of directions. If this is offered again I'd go. I would like to see a few more participants, that would be a great way for folks to learn, challenge, get to know a diverse community.

Title or Location: "Lianne Marie"
When I was at home in early 2020, I wanted to learn how to create colored pencil portraits, so I started searching for photos of close friends to use (with their permission). My friend Lianne Marie's face is always so wonderfully expressive, and since her hair had been dyed such jewel-bright colors, I thought she'd be the perfect first study. I laid down a base of alcohol markers for her hair, and then the rest of the piece was done with layers (and layers and layers) of wax-based colored pencil

Title or Location: In Honor of Mary Ann
This is a portrait of my mother delivered in the form of a retablo (aka nicho). Mary Ann Auricchio (n?e Fitzgerald) was an accomplished artist until she lost her executive function to vascular dementia. The portrait was completed while she was alive, but it was converted post mortem to a retablo. This seemed appropriate to set context for her experience in the late stages of her disease. She was a devout Catholic, and she explained a lot of life?s challenges in terms of good, evil, prayer, and m

This is Isla, Ellie and Millie. Oil on canvas 27.5 inches x 39.5. They are my friends daughters. I often ask how 'the girls' are doing and there's always a funny story. Isla is full of mischief. Ellie is the sassy budding artist and Millie is a 'little devil' in the best way. I thought it was important to try and capture each of their personalities by working and finishing one at a time. They are beautiful girls. This was a pleasure to paint and I feel it has really tested my ability. I've defin

Title or Location: Memories of Bassano Del Grappa
A beautiful town in northern Italy - a town who protected partisans during WW2 and suffered the loss of all men and boys as retribution. Today it still bears the marks of war on the walls of the town, with the wooden bridge having been rebuilt a number of times due to war. This mosaic commission was created for a much happier reason, to commemorate a long held friendship between two families, here in Australia and there in Italy. Entirely created with hand cut pieces of glass.
