‘We are a Group of Melbourne Artists who formed a strong bond in our years as students in the Printmaking Studio while studying for our Diploma of Visual Arts .
Our art practice is as varied as we are, and demonstrates the unlimited ways in which printmaking methods and practices can inspire each of us to create wonderful images.
Expressing our creations with linocut and drypoint etching, our work describes the many ways in which our world becomes manifest.  All of our works are printed on archival paper using either oil or water based inks.

As well as Works on Paper, Amanda includes handmade books. Her artwork is inspired by “the great fortune to have a garden which attracts a number of Australian native birds, and so I felt that an “ABC” book of Australian birds would be a good way to address the gap I had identified. From that point, the study of birds in the garden, the finding of feathers, the examination of other avian images filled my mind, and enabled me to produce a variety of images.”

Jeremy states that his “prints and paintings are presented as scenes or representations of ideas in realistic or semi-realistic ways, attempting to tell a story or explain an idea with each piece. Utilizing composition of light and shadow and perspective. My art is a personal reflection of my own experiences as also a way to deal with life’s problems. Light and shadow a predominant themes in my work. Many of my pieces capture moments in time, carrying layers of meaning.”

 Pamela explores Modernist influences, Sophie presents her sensitive images of the human condition on both paper and ceramics and Fay’s ‘Abstractions’ explore the universal shapes of circles, triangles and square, with some pieces being embellished with stitching and hand colouring.’   Artist Fay Abromwich
