  4. 4. The studio offers members support and camaraderie,<br /> a larger space than they could have at home to work in,<br /> the use of easels and a print press,<br /> access to an extensive art library, excursions, and workshops, <br /> as well as opportunities to exhibit and sell their work.<br />

  16. 16.
  17. 17. “Top End Termites” watercolour<br />2010<br />
  18. 18. My goal in painting is to communicate with<br /> and to entertain the viewer <br />- to show another way of seeing familiar objects. <br />Perhaps this new way of seeing will lead<br />to a deeper understanding of the subject. <br />An open mind is a wonderful asset to possess. <br />Gloria Woodward<br />

  22. 22. Drawing and painting has always been a big part of my life. <br />Mixing colours and experimenting with colour I find exciting. <br />My studio is a mix of all the different mediums and works in progress gathered in over the years.<br />Dawn Pound<br />

  24. 24.
  25. 25. I have always been interested in art <br />and visiting the local Artist’s exhibitions over the years<br /> has been very interesting, <br />so when I retired I joined the CQ Contemporary Artists group<br /> and have enjoyed the experience <br />of drawing and painting with them.<br />Dorothy Cranston.<br />
  26. 26.
  27. 27.
  28. 28. I love working at the kitchen table<br /> as my studio situation is shared with the pool table, motor cycle and what ever else that gathers.<br />I get the best light and views<br /> as well as keep a good eye on what the kids are up too.<br />I have to be multifunctional. <br />I love all forms of art.<br /> At present l am enjoying spending a lot of my time drawing and printmaking at CQ TAFE.<br />Julie Milligan<br />
  29. 29. Current life <br />Oil<br />Western Sunset<br />Acrylic<br />
  30. 30. Jennifer Eurell has a studio under her highset house in Rockhampton. There are advantages and disadvantages in this – the breeze wafts through, there is plenty of space and it is cooler than the rest of the house, but on the other hand both dust and mosquitoes also breeze through. <br />She enjoys working in various media including acrylics, oils, watercolour and dry media. <br />Jennifer is both a painter and a printmaker and does not restrict her subject matter to anything in particular, although the natural environment is high on the list. She is currently studying painting through Curtin University via the Open University.<br />
  31. 31.
  32. 32. "Tobago to Bequia"150cm x 40cm on five panels.Oil on canvas<br />
  33. 33. I have always taken an interest in all forms of art. <br />But it wasn’t till I retired I decided<br /> to try a bit of sketching and painting. <br /> I joined the CQ Contemporary Artists to try<br /> to expand my horizons. <br /> My main interests are birds and nature <br />and the local landscape, with all its rich colour.<br /> I really admire the Impressionists <br />and would love to try my own version one day. <br />The group are very friendly and encourage us <br />to try new techniques with printing and other mediums.<br />My studio is an old office desk and a chest of drawers. <br /> It gets cluttered and out of hand at times then, <br />after a big cleanup, I can’t find anything.<br />Ann McHugh<br />
  34. 34.
  35. 35.
  36. 36. Overall, the excitement for me is the way that paint or ink, <br />or charcoal is used to make a painting. <br />However, first in the mind comes the subject matter,<br />and then it is about which technique of paint application to use to enhance the subject matter, and then next in importance for me comes<br />the choice of the colour ...hopefully this all melds together in a harmonious way.<br />Gail e Meyer<br />
  37. 37.
  38. 38.
  39. 39. My so called studio – is the dining table.<br />The table has the best light in the house,<br />and I love to be able to hear the outdoor sounds when I paint . So I open the sliding doors and paint and listen to nature.<br />Jan Ford<br />
  40. 40. Still life in Oil<br />
  41. 41. Print and Ink<br />
  42. 42. This room is occasionally used as my studio because of good lighting, but actually my entire house is turned into a studio at times.  I like to spread out - from kitchen to bedroom to computer room etc.<br />I am a keen portrait artist with animals and humans becoming my subjects. <br />The CQ Contempory Artists' Group have inspired me to try different mediums thus causing me to spread out even more!<br />Kerry Jackson<br />
  43. 43.
  44. 44. Pastels<br />Banjo<br />Cassie<br />Mum<br />
  45. 45. My art is based on drawing - doodles and imaginative drawings on any scrap of paper- some become acrylic paintings, and some become digital art using a Wacom tablet, computer and Photoshop.<br />While I am always keen to learn more, there is a stronger need to express myself with joy and humour than to become a cloner of traditional art styles.<br />I fit my time for art into a busy family and professional work/life balance, reflected in my studio setup, as I often find myself moving from easel to check dinner on the stove and back to paint more while the light lasts.<br /> My home ‘studio’ is a corner of a spare room , <br />with an old shower curtain laid down to protect the carpet, plus an easel and a desk crowded with materials and art books. This room is slowly filling up with my art , and may one day push out the spare bed, the beanbag and the teenage game consoles altogether.<br />Anna Casey<br />
  46. 46.
  47. 47. Legacy from the humans (Yeppoon Beach 2060)<br />Digital art print<br />
  48. 48.
  49. 49. My interest in art started when a friend began to get into it and so it all began.<br />Apart from 2 night classes and a few 1 day workshops, I'm self taught. I have belonged to 3 different art groups which has helped my art develop and grow. I love doing  landscapes, seascapes and have tried my hand at some abstracts. <br />At present drawing is taking up my time and I‘m getting a lot of enjoyment from it. My name is my initials and came aboutthrough selling my art from my garage in New Zealand.<br />Judy Black at JBS ART<br />
  50. 50.
  51. 51.
  52. 52. My work always has a story or message. <br />One of my messages is: look around, despite wars, social injustice, hunger and crime, even at the worst of times life is beautiful and precious. It is important not to lose sight of this. <br />I believe there is a legitimate place for 'beautiful' art as well as socially critically art. <br />I personally work on both sides of this fence, since I do not believe in the rigid categorisation of either art or artists.<br />SONJA KELDOR GUDIKSEN<br />
  53. 53. Coral Reef Symphony<br />
  54. 54.
  55. 55. My background is musical. In 1971 I began learning Taijiquan & other styles of Chinese Kungfu & that has also coloured the way I think. <br />In 1971 I married Matilda & her multi-cultural experience has permeated my life experience since. <br />It's only recently I took drawing classes @ Rocky TAFE with Carmen Gray & painting with Patrick. <br />I work intuitively & don't think too much about outcomes. <br />Lindsay Smith<br />
  56. 56.
  57. 57. Lax <br />Mango<br />Acrylic<br />
  58. 58. My first encounter with art was going to Eric Joliffe, a cartoonist who came around to give workshops in bush towns.<br />The next great thing was the starting of the Flying Art School by Mervyn Moriaty. <br />He learnt to fly a plane to be able to take art training to people in the bush. Mervyn was a great person and a marvellous art tutor. <br /> I am always grateful for his art training. <br />BelaIvanyie was another tutor who came with the Flying Art School. <br />I like to travel, and to be able to draw and paint is so good as you can get great ideas for paintings when you return home. So far I do not have a studio as I never have had spare money to build one. I just paint where ever I can set my work down. It may be on the kitchen table, or just on the ground. <br />I just think the only time I am completely happy is when I am painting. I am also very interested in Spirituality and I also think that when I was struggling I asked God to come in and help me. <br />Linda Frawley<br />

  60. 60.
  61. 61. Art in my life has been a truly rewarding experience. <br />As the growth in one's person is an education in itself.<br /> And ongoing, if we wish to learn for the rest of our lives. <br />As most tutors will teach you<br /> ‘The Journey' is the most important thing.<br />Helen Holden<br />
