Spring has arrived in Victoria!

Cherry Blossom snowstorms, the heady scent of hyacinths, daffodils bowing and waving in the soft breeze...cheeky, but we just had to share!

 

One of my favourite corners of Beacon Hill Park.

(Heywood Avenue and Park Boulevard)

 

Two of our newest artists take inspiration!

Through Purple Windows - Murrini series

9 x 8 x 4

$2300

 

Lisa takes inspiration for her Murrini series from Hundertwasser's buildings in Vienna and New Zealand.

Her ability to bring a new vitality and approach to her medium year after year is due in part to her ongoing education at The Pilchuk School and The Corning Glass Museum. Adding to this is her experience gleaned as owner of Starfish Studio, teacher at Red Deer College and from participation in exhibitions both nationally and internationally. This broad experience had lead to speaking engagements as well as being featured in numerous art publications.
