AMY CROW I've been a visual artist for years but I feel I have only really made significant headway in the last year since finishing studying graphic design with Design College Australia. Studying design has informed my composition, use of colour, balance and overall aesthetic to a stronger point. I am also a print maker, mainly as a screen printed but also in lino cutting. These applications lately have found themselves integrating with my visual art as opposed to stand alone practices.

ANDLIZZY I never really decided to draw in a particular style, it’s just what comes out. It started as a creative outlet for the nerdy things I am into. I illustrate mostly portraits of people I wish I was related to, or that have inspired my daydreams. I’m inspired by a mixture of things – fashion, art, atmosphere, people and music. Music was always a bit of a sanctuary to me, you can play or listen to a song and it takes you somewhere, so many different layers that feed your own creativity.  I like to make sure I look at everything. See the shadows, highlights, how colour interacts, the energy in a pose, character in movements. It’s everywhere, all the time.

BELLA REBOUL Bella Reboul is a French born, Brisbane-based artist who works predominantly with fine pen to create detailed stippled illustrations.

Bella creates intimate portraits of animals, fusing a passion for zoology with a love for drawing to replicate nature as she sees it.

DANA FERRIS I tend to draw what I feel like, and that usually just ends up being pretty pictures of girls and food. Turns out I've gotten pretty good at it! I enjoy drawing in different styles, it's interesting and fun to learn new techniques but at the end of the day I usually go back to my detailed, painted style. It's more about the process than the finished product for me.

 DARCY STINKHORNS Stinkhorns have a worldwide distribution, but are especially prevalent in tropical regions. They are known for their foul-smelling, sticky spore masses, or gleba, borne on the end of a stalk called the receptaculum. The spore mass typically smells of carrion or dung, and attracts flies and other insects to help disperse the spores. Stinkhorns is also the name of a human living in Brisbane who makes things out of black ink and paper.

EMMA LE STRANGE I am Emma Le Strange, emerging artist and aspiring polymath. As I traverse life, I live in perpetuum, seeking knowledge and application. However, my foremost love lyes alongside the conte crayon. I am dedicated to researching and developing my realist technique for conte crayon artworks.

GEORGIA CRAIG It all started with a season. A series a tv show. Binge watching TVs turned my passion for drawing into a forever evolving, addictive, creative explosion of ideas. As a self taught artist I continue exploring pen and paper and paint pens and different surfaces with the aim to capture intricate doodles involving concentric circles. As using tiny details filled with colour and character create endless possibilities in my world of patterns and shapes.

GILLIAN SMITH Originally trained as a concert pianist I was encouraged to paint the images that were in my mind as I performed. Initially my artworks were large abstract oil or acrylic pieces full of colour, texture and movement. After the birth of my children I was drawn to a more illustrative style. This was possibly driven by my delight for children's literature. Capturing, predominantly animals, through a series of ink pen and watercolour works it was their expressions that captivated me. This desire to capture a "glance' lead me to study portraiture under Brisbane based fine artist Keith Burt in early 2016. After participating in numerous group exhibitions I held my first solo exhibition "Salty Eyes" at Aspire Gallery in August of 2016. I actually won the solo opportunity by winning a public vote prize in their earlier "Petite Pieces" group exhibition. "Salty Eyes" was a series of seascapes and portraits which reflected my love of the abstract, illustrative and portraiture styles. I have also had my abstract work "Solar Flare" published in America's ArtAscent Heat Issue and received international awards from the Light, Space & Time Online Gallery for my abstract, seascape and portraiture work.

HAYLEY ROBERTS As a child I was enchanted with the fairy tales my parents read to me, believing the world was full of magic and mystery. Through photography I bring to life the kinds of stories I adored in my youth. These are the stories that bend and break the rules of reality. Where magic is part of the fabric of the universe. I am a self-taught photographer who uses trick photography and Photoshop to collage images into larger scenes, blending fantasy into the everyday using characters, costumes, props and posing. On my website I run the 'Exposing Illusions' project to inspire and teach others the creative photography techniques I use to defy reality.

KEL CHRISTIANSEN I've been doing art for as long as I can remember ranging from illustrations to larger pieces on canvas and timber. I'm self taught and almost exclusively use copics, acrylic inks and paint markers. I'm mostly inspired by folk and tribal art, old school book illustrations and Australian landscapes and wildlife. My usual colour palette is informed by North Queensland where I grew up, traditional tattooing and Nicholas Windng Refn films.

LEAH FALCOCCHIO In my personal work I enjoy playing with letterforms and colour, at the moment I’m particularly interested in vector typography with limited colour palettes. Although all of my ideas start with pencil and paper, they can often be better executed digitally. For this reason I find a kind of freedom through digital art which I never expected, as I have always been a traditional pen-to-paper kind of girl. I’m constantly exploring new ideas and techniques though, which I document through my Instagram page. I’m not sure if I’ve quite found my niche yet; as they say the journey can be just as enjoyable as the destination.

NAsnins At this stage of my practise, I am still discovering my artistic path. I engaged in studying visual art in my 20’s at QCA but disbanded my artistic profile after completing my first year. I have always been a restrained and reclusive artist, however I have recently discovered artistic enthusiasm again, I have undertaken studies at BIA and re-engaged after a 15 year hiatus at QCA. Most of the art I produce has a dark undertone. My interests lie in all things thread and metal. I am a poly-art user, I have in recent years been captivated by embroidery and watercolour but drawing is at the core of my creative process.

RACHEAL AUDREY ANGER All I've ever wanted to do was take photos. I remember begging my parents for a DSLR when I was 15 and the rest is history. I've been shooting since then (8 years), completed an advanced Diploma of PhotoImaging, travelled overseas for work, worked with countless local and emerging brands. My favourite thing to shoot is look books for small Australian labels. I recently have moved into social media management for brands, and this let's me use my creative ability to its full potential.

SOBER BOB MONTHLY I'm an emerging artist, slowly making my way through the zine and alt fashion world. My inspirations come from the many crafts my mother taught me, by "women's work" and the mixing of traditional mediums and methods into new concepts such as glitch art. I try to keep my humour dry and my experiences raw in my art. I've been trailing the zine fair and art pop up circuit in Brisbane for the past year and been a part of the Copy and Destroy collective to help young zine makers get their ideas on paper.

STEPHANIE MLADY Currently mum to a very cheeky and active 10 month old son, I started a new venture with polymer clay jewellery. Initially with it being a hobby making earrings for family and friends as gifts, they encouraged me to turn it into something more. With nighttime the only free time I have once my son is asleep, I handcraft clay jewellery - hence the name Son and Moon. After working away and trying different designs, I finally plucked up the courage to take my jewellery public at local markets. I love seeing people wear my products, but more importantly for me, I love how it feels to let myself relax and be creative.

TEENS ON ACID Josh Thorsen aka Teens On Acid is a child of the eighties. His personal art work is heavily influenced by 80's cartoons, skateboarding culture, comics and anime. His art explodes with bold color pallettes, giving life to goonish characters and the world in which they were created, leaving the viewer experiencing nothing short of an LSD flashback. Over time, Josh's work has matured and become more refined using simpler but just as bold colour palettes and a much cleaner, individual line style. Consistently producing original, inspiring work, he has firmly cemented his position within the Australian lowbrow art and street culture scene. Regularly invited to participate in live paint installations, curated solo and group shows worldwide, Josh has collaborated with some of Australia's leading streetwear labels, stores and artists to develop clothing ranges and interior installations including Mambo, Laced Sneaker Culture, Shock Mansion, Scribe Outlined, Sneak & Destroy, TRNRS and has also been featured in publications including TBC Mag, Semi Permanent (Aus), We Are The Image Makers, World Wide Designers (France) Peak Street Magazine, Colorink (USA), Libertine and Out4Fame. Josh is truly an all rounder, able to execute from concept to production on digital and traditional projects ranging from branding and identity to hand painted murals and installations.

WHEELER WHEELER is primarily illustration and photography with a love of colour and nostalgia. My focus is suburbia, the everyday, florals and the street. I like getting in close with my photography and flowers feature in the foreground as often as possible. My illustrations are based on little stories and moments from my life. These stories seem to have emerging aesthetics such as cigarettes, alcohol and food.

VIVID BLACK ARTISTRY Even before preschool I’ve always loved skulls, monsters, anything the slightest bit ‘sinister’ both as a drawing subject and in general. I remember that I was drawing witches and demons during a church service that my grandma took me to. That was just what I was interested in drawing; I wasn’t trying to be disrespectful to anyone. I still find inspiration in the same subjects that I did when I was younger. I find that they relate well to the themes in my work now, such as death and the evil within the human race.  My creative weakness is spending copious amounts of time detailing my art. It’s truly beautiful and an absolute inspiration to see the amount of time and effort artists put into their work, and that’s what urges me to attempt to reflect this beauty in my own work.

ANNA ELIZABETH I'm a Communication Designer/Hand letterer from Brisbane! I have completed a Bachelor of Communication Design at Billy Blue but also have been teaching myself to hand letter for just over a year starting off with Calligraphy then moving to brushes and pens. With everyone moving into the digital age it's nice to be able to step away from the screen and get messy with paper and ink. I have learnt to appreciate the beauty of my letters being imperfectly perfect. They aren't kerned and the strokes aren't even, but they are personal, and that is what makes them perfect to me.

BETH CROTHERS My works are heavily influenced by my personal journey as a survivor with PTSD and as the full time carer of children with disabilities for over two decades. I draw on my experience to search for dignity and beauty within the imperfect and isolated. My practice preserves the notion of naivety, masking the complex nature of multi-stage construction in glass. I seek to explore and reflect human frailty and strength and produce work which is organic, tactile and captivating with aesthetic resolution.

BIANCA SCHULZE Hi my name is Bee. I am an emerging artist residing in Brisbane. I have recently been drawn to working with pencil, pastel, water pastel, acrylic and oil on paper, card and canvas. I am also renewing my relationship with photography, music appreciation, particularly of the heavier vibration and I am an x contemporary dancer. My work comes from an emotional space that sometimes I can't reach without it. Recent life developments have reminded me how important it is for me to have an outlet for my inner child.

DANIEL SHERINGTON Daniel, is both a struggling Architecture student, and a struggling Artist - a throwback to the days of old when an artist thought that an architecture degree goes hand in hand with their creative aspirations. An emerging artist in Brisbane, Daniel finds his medium in drawing, particularly with pen and ink: a passion which started in early high school, and has been continued on to this day. As of recent times, Daniel has been exhibiting work in art shows whenever he can get the opportunity, and ensured his competitive edge has been sated by entering a variety of art competitions; as well as giving back to the community that started his passion, by running drawing classes at Brisbane Grammar School twice a week (with some collaboration from others of course). If Daniel's work could be described, it is the appreciation of the mundane items - household items that we readily accept to be part of our life yet never really come to appreciate: their form, their beauty, their eloquent nature, all missed by our gaze.

ERIN KENNEDY I AM: A visual artist, illustrator, and community creator. I CREATE: Big and bold, tiny and delicate, otherwise in between; black and white pen-ink line drawings, colourful, textured, expressionistic landscapes; not what I see but how I see; fauvist inspired colour, line and light collide with the playful energy of exploring a new place.  I USE: Gouache, salvaged acrylics, ecolour paints, watercolour, ink, pastel, charcoal, pencil, found & recycled timber, on: canvas, paper, cardboard, wood, walls, doors, faces...  I BELIEVE: in beauty, sustainability, art for change, community, and art as an expression of spirit and feeling that should be more accessible than in gilt frames on white gallery walls. I WANT: to make art with others and collaborate on creative, community building which makes the world a better, brighter place for everyone.

HARLEY & HANDEN My art consists of paper collages and embroidery - all done by hand! I started to sew at age 5, learning from my Ma at her craft-a-noons. I learnt to sew pencil cases and have been taking commissions from middle school. Collage has been with me (unknowingly) from a young age also. I loved to scrapbook and create juxtaposition with magazine clippings. I started to purposely collage when I found out that it is an actual art and discovered many artists through a college project. It really motivated me to think I could make a name for myself this way.

JUXTAFIED AIRBRUSHING I create airbrush portraits in water based paint and ink on varying surfaces. I am particularly fond of black and white portraiture and have recently developed an interest in the challenge of hyperrealism. Airbrushing has been a pastime of mine over the last few years and was initially generated by seeing a flyer for an airbrush course at a car show. I haven’t ventured into automotive paints at this stage however I would like to pursue that and larger scale murals in the future.

LAURA GIBBS I'm an illustrator, designer and digital artist. I love working with bright colours and simple shapes. I'm attracted to extremes and like to incorporate elements of both fantasy and futurism into my art. Using these, I aim to create work that's exciting and strange but warm and approachable. For me, art is less an escape from reality and more of a chance to reach out and influence it. My head is full of imaginary places, things and stories that grow too big to stay contained, and art is my way of pushing them out into the world.

LONDON FORSYTH Since I was around 5, I would be cutting up things making collages, drawings and little houses for my dolls. Fast forward 14 years and I am studying graphic design/fashion at uni and actively pursuing my dream of being a textile designer/visual artist. As you can see I also give 2 alternatives because I like to think of the different roads life could take me on. The same can be said about my art, before I start a painting I don't plan on where each bit of colour will be placed, it just happens. If I accidentally knock it and the paint starts running from the girls eye, it was meant to be and it may reflect something from within that the paintbrush couldn't quite do.

NATALIE GIBBS Drawing was never something I ever worked hard at or towards. One day, I decided to draw my friend when I was 14 years old and something just clicked. Since then, I haven’t stopped. I disregarded most of the techniques that were taught to me in school simply because art was something that had always had a ‘natural’ feeling to it. It felt wrong to be “taught” it. I felt like I was cutting corners with something so incredible so I did whatever felt natural. I tend to focus on perspective, composition and the depth of each piece because those are the things that grab me the most. Low-key lighting is one of my absolute favourite things to experiment with and re-create. I want to learn as many mediums as possible, try different techniques and reach new horizons. Art is unpredictable and there is no right or wrong to me and I think that’s the cool and awesome thing with art in general - it tends to throw you curveballs that not only test your patience, but the level of creativity you possess when it comes to dealing with them.

OLLLZ My art practice focuses on producing works that explore dream states and human existence in a dizzying abundance of pattern and line. Realism is fused with the surreal manifestations of the imagination in a pursuit to draw out new worlds available only in dreams and the mind. Constant sources of inspiration are textiles and patterns from various cultures, elements in nature, tattoos and interesting personalities. Brining forth works that respond to a never-ending range of creative stimuli.

My art practice focuses on producing works that explore dream states and human existence in a dizzying abundance of pattern and line. Realism is fused with the surreal manifestations of the imagination in a pursuit to draw out new worlds available only in dreams and the mind.

Constant sources of inspiration are textiles and patterns from various cultures, elements in nature, tattoos and interesting personalities. Brining forth works that respond to a never-ending range of creative stimuli. 

RAATISM I began painting as a way of stirring a reaction from those around me, as well as expressing my interest in pop-culture. From the beginning I was doing larger scale pieces as my style has more of an impact that way. Since then I've just been focused on evolving my style and trying new things. I sometimes paint for my favourite music artists when they come to Brisbane or Melbourne (eg. The Internet, A$AP Ferg, Kilo Kish). I do little art shows around Brisbane occasionally, but I prefer to spend my time in the studio experimenting with different concepts and ideas.

SAMANTHA GILKES I am a self taught artist living just outside of Brisbane with my husband, offspring, dogs, cat and chickens.  I overthink just about everything and am inspired by the things that overwhelm me.  I love symbols and nature and discarded things.  My art and creativity is a way for me to navigate my way through life as a mother and person in the modern world.  Being creative is like drawing breath each day.  My work is feminine and often thought provoking.  I work in acrylics, watercolour, ink and colour pencil and also make things from wood.  Over that past 10 years I have been very lucky to take part in a number of group exhibitions and have also sold my work online and at various artisan markets as Jetta's Nest.

SHANICE CASEY Living in Brisbane most of my life I am interested in illustrating what's around me; plants and animals also combining the figure to create interesting stories. The process of creating works is combining young adult experiences with childhood nostalgia.

SHANI FINCH Shani Finch is a young emerging artist from Brisbane, who is a passionate feminist and believer in self love. Finch uses an array of techniques and materials to create images of the female form which are designed to stimulate an open dialogue about the overall negative perception of female sexuality in society. Her work is positioned to encourage female empowerment and to help break away from the societal norms of body shaming, by presenting all human forms as beautiful and positively re-enforcing self love. Most artworks feature nude imagery of the artist herself, in order to put herself in a vulnerable and exposed position, but also to normalise her nakedness, and become further in love with the skin she is in. Her artwork is not limited to just the female form either, as the artist is also passionate about encouraging men to love themselves and be free to show emotions in a society where they have been taught not to.

SKULL CAP Over the past six years, jumping head first into the art world, I have promoted, organised and sold pieces in approximately eight exhibitions consisting of solo, group and  self funded pop up gallery and studio space. My real love is leaving my mark on the biggest blankest and public canvas that we walk everyday called the streets. If I had to describe my style I would say it's mixed media, street art with a touch of old school rock and roll. I have and still do trade and swap art (including stickers paste ups stencils etc) all over the world and produce new world on a regular basis including commissions, preparing for exhibits or just experimenting.

STEVEN HARRIS Having never had the confidence to try and work full time as an artist, I instead ventured into the financially safer world of graphic design. All the while creating art on the side. I have slowly built up my skill level and personal style to a point where I would like to allocate more time to creating works and sharing them. Hopefully this is the start of a new direction for me.

TERESA MOLE Teresa has spend her career as a teacher of Visual Art and Information technology whilst she is drawn between traditional and new media she finds a mid way fusion which becomes more focused on the developmental process. Contemporary practice is what she feels engaged with and appreciates- they are particularly works that push the boundaries to tell a story. Mole's practice is always resolving and is strongly directed by the elements & principles of art, her work can sometime represent objects as magnified pattern, simplified shapes and with compositions that develop in combinations of colour schemes that can appear transparent, overlapping and sometimes thick and textured. Teresa describes her aesthetic as having a split personality and on occasion it leads to a style which is stylised, free flowing and then it can be more controlled and realistic. Photography and drawing is key to her conceptual development process as it becomes a visual diary or documentary of various perspective of subject matter and ideas. Teresa's practice relies on water-soluble media such as oils, watercolour, acrylic, graphite pencil and ink to create layers work and sometimes transparency. Subject matter in her work comes from seeing and examining several perspectives in a very literal manner, she is intrigued by natural elements and how the ephemeral relationships between nature and the built environments juxtaposition together to co-exist.

TRACY L SPALDING My subject matter is derived from the mystery and beauty of nature. Abstract expressionism portrayed in explosive colour or imagined scenery, my art is inspired by outdoor places that stimulate imagination. My goal is for my painting, illustration, design and street art to inspire others to search the world and discover beauty in unexpected places.

ZENA My name's Zena Dubray and I've always been creative. I think I've always wanted to be an artist... even though the first time I said this I was probably 5 and thought artist meant classical-art -painter-guy. Unfortunately I haven't achieved such a status just yet. I went through a period of time where I stopped drawing... That period of time 'strangely enough' ended at the same time I graduated high school. So for the past 3 years I have jumped right back into the art game. I developed my initial style by total accident and also discovered I'm okay at drawing portraits. I use a lot of fine liners and copic markers. This lead me to an interest in typography and then street art. Now I just want to draw on everything. Like, I made a dress and now I'm drawing on it with fabric paint ~ ZEF style ~ I have also found an interest in hair braiding, which I have become fairly skilled at and have done a few photo shoots. I'd like to get a market stall for my "Du-braids" and see how well it goes. This interest developed through my love of style and self expression, as well as my love for hand crafts such as bracelet making and cross stitch. Currently I'm studying Sound Production because I love singing and audio is a field I knew the least about. I also really enjoy photography which I've been doing for about 5 years now.
