Teresa Small is an emerging artist, based in Sydney, Australia.
Working primarily with oils and acrylic, her expertise is in painting. Creating exceptionally high quality art works that ranges from photo-realistic portraits, sublime landscapes to bold, vibrant and surreal abstract styles. She exhibits her work in multiple art shows and local cafes, as well as market stalls around the eastern suburbs and inner west of Sydney. She has proven to be exceedingly popular with clients for her commissioned works and lessons. Being a Chroma sponsored artist she conducts material demonstrations in acrylics and oils at art stores, universities and schools.
Her perception of the beautiful world changed completely when she was introduced to painting. She fell in love with the world in a whole new way. Nature is her biggest source of inspiration, through nature she observes strict realism, the full spectrum of colours, and the free organic patterns in which her abstracts imitate.
Adriana is a Sydney based artist that is fascinated with the varied forms and use of both colour and light, in her current watercolour work as well as across various mediums and techniques. With her technical background in all forms of printmaking and also watercolour, Adriana graduated with her Masters in Research from Sydney College of the Arts in 2015, and has been teaching and working in the field full time ever since. Her background in product development and procurement of art materials also lends itself to her fascination of colour in all its material forms, with her varied knowledge of products lending itself to her own art practice and that in turn flows through her teaching.
At present she is focusing solely on water based media, taking an experimental approach to the exploitation and anticipation of watercolour as a medium, and its relationship to paper as an object. Through layers of translucent glazes of colour she focuses on re-creating figments of memory and worlds that are a study on the immediacy of paint. There is a strong focus on recapturing an affinity to the landscape through water and reflection, as well as through an amplified use of both luminosity and colour in her works. At its core, her work is whittled down to a process using the barest of necessities in water, pigment, paper and a single brush.
John is an energetic outdoor painter who works almost exclusively in oils and is stimulated by the strong light of the Australian landscape. He is particularly enthusiastic about the districts from the Blue Mountains to Mudgee in The Central West artistically. He enjoys painting the landscape from life, “en plein air”, and engages in regular painting trips to country locations. John lives in the village of Mulgoa on the western fringes of Sydney, providing a lot for an artist to digest both aesthetically and culturally as a central location for the Hawkesbury, Blue Mountains and Sydney.
John has won many awards for his artworks and has held twelve very successful solo exhibitions and numerous joint exhibitions. He has works in private collections throughout Australia and abroad and is an exhibiting member of the Royal Art Society. John has almost forty years teaching experience and conducts regular workshops and demonstrations at his studio and for local art societies.
