My name is Janet Caruana and I started painting 15 years ago, starting with folk art and then progressing to other art forms. I use mainly acrylics but do dabble in watercolour and experiment with mixed media. I like using inks, watercolour pencils and different mediums, anything I feel will give me the effect I am looking for. Nothing is discarded if I feel it is worth a try.
Harley Manifold was born in Camperdown, Victoria in 1982. In 2003, he completed a Bachelor of Fine Arts at Deakin University in Warrnambool. He then went on to complete his Honours in Fine Arts at the prestigious Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne (he was the only student in his year who had not studied at VCE prior to the Honours course).
Commencing painting in her senior years, Marie has come to love the exciting medium of watercolour.
Having received many awards and acknowledgements along the way, she enjoys sharing with others what she has learnt through demonstrations, exhibitions, workshops and classes.

When Colleen went to her first glass class about 6 years ago, she fell in love with the wonder of the medium's transparency. She was enthralled by the colour and light and the magnificent range of colours, from the soft tints to intense colours.
I have been a resident of Bannockburn 1986, first moving on to a small farm and then downsizing to a half acre in town proper where we have resided for the last 20 years. (I almost qualify as local).
