Nowadays to walk down Regent Street in Steiglitz is like walking amongst ghosts. Once the towns business and social centre, it is now a dirt track with few buildings remaining. As other towns in the region are practically exploding at the seams with people seeking the charm of country life, the population of Steiglitz remains at 7- a number represented throughout this work.
I have always loved wool and started to spin when my girls were small. I progressed to weaving and felting after joining the Geelong Handweavers and Spinners Guild.
I have been fortunate in having the opportunity to exhibit samples of my work at local exhibitions, Geelong and Bendigo Shows and to have been a section winner at the Scarf Festival at the Geelong Wool Museum.
Over the last eight or so years I have been enjoying my card making for family and friends. The craft is enjoyable, soothing, satisfying and a wonderful way to socialise and meet new people. It is a craft that can be done at home as well as being easily transportable to other crafting venues around Victoria and even aboard a crafting cruise!

I am a self-taught emerging artist based in Clarendon. My work is in several private collections around Australia, and I had my first solo show in Ballarat's Unicorn Lane in 2017. I create to reveal everyday beauty, to tell stories about women and their bodies, and to celebrate flights of the ordinary.
Nathan Krivan is a sculptor who works in limestone, sandstone, clay, bronze and concrete.
He is currently completing his VCE studies at Covenant College, where he attained a perfect study score of 50 in Studio Arts.
I have had a camera in my hands for as long as I can remember. However, it was safaris in 2013 & 2014 to South Africa and Botswana, respectively, which inspired me to focus on wildlife and landscape photography.
My whole life I have been interested in different craft techniques. I feel very fortunate that I came to Australia and learnt about the Indigenous culture and was able to learn how to weave.
I am a self-taught artist, working predominately in acrylics.
I have always been interested in drawing and painting, and took up folk art many years ago and from that started painting birds, mainly the magpies and parrots I have befriended.
Words are a source of power and energy. I have been working over the past ten years with fineline pens to create colourful positive word mandalas. Creating these mandalas is a process of self expression and a form of meditation when words are written on a held breath.
