Garry is a wildlife artist working in graphite, a medium which leans toward fine detail, and occasionally charcoal. The work generally starts from life observations and photo references, and together with a bit of imagination they can take many, many hours to complete.
He is also a fine wood artist working primarily in recycled timbers. His woodwork and drawings are wholly inspired by our unique Australian fauna. It is through these photorealistic drawings and marquetry pieces that he is striving to heighten awareness of these wonderful creatures.
Garry has received awards in Samford Show, Moreton Bay Art Awards, Lethbridge 10000, QWASI International Wildlife Exhibition, Holmes Art Prize

Gerry has a three-year Tafe Certificate in Studio Ceramics, and has specialised in Raku pottery for more than 25 years. Since Raku became popular among Western potters sixty years ago its scope has been broadened to include sculpture and brilliant glaze colour. He has worked with several Melbourne potters who specialise in glaze and firing technology to solve colour problems in Raku glazes and to refine Raku firing techniques.
For Gerry, Raku also has a deep philosophical base in Zen, which he finds compelling and which influences his work. Zen stresses spontaneity, simplicity and the aesthetics of irregularity and asymmetry as found in nature, as opposed to the aesthetics of balance and regularity as found in most western art. Western Raku is also influenced by Abstract Expressionism, which teaches that an artwork is the product of the individual, the process and the material, not just the product of the dominating will of the artist.
Gerry has exhibited regularly in Australia since 1990, and his work was included in several shows in Italy in 1996. His Raku is in private collections in Australia and in many overseas countries.
Gerry has written a play that has been performed professionally, and is also a photographer. Two of his photographic portrait exhibitions have been acquired by the Queensland State Library.

Robert spent six months at Queensland college of Art and is also qualified as a stonemason working in the restoration of stone buildings. His experience extends across a reasonably broad range of fields including pencil and ink drawing, painting, sculpture in stone, photography and digital art, print making and intermedia.
Robert's primary interest is in ink drawing, in which he has some fifteen years of practice. During this time he has developed his own style which draws influence from geometry and botanical and biological drawing, tying the use of motifs and repetition of form to illustrate a cross section of consciousness at the time of creating.
He sees the process of drawing as one of spontaneity, involving little or no premeditation and informed only by the previous iterations of the work.
