Marlies Benjamin . decoupage
By using colour, design and fine cutting I aim to create unique pieces of decoupage that are functional but timeless in their appeal.
I mix my own paint colours for backgrounds and constantly experiment to find new ways to present my work. I work on goose and emu eggs and wooden boxes mainly, but occasionally decoupage under glass and on ceramics.
My Dutch background gives my work a European flavour.
My initial training was with Val Lade. Since then, as a member of the Decoupage Guilds of NSW, Victoria and Queensland, I have attended workshops to fine tune the many techniques required to complete a piece of quality decoupage.
Grace Levis . ceramic artist, felted jewellery
I create ceramic jewellery and artistic textiles which capture the distinctive themes and breathtaking colours of Australia.
Born in Warsaw, Poland, I arrived in Sydney in 1990 and since then, have been developing my very own unique jewellery and wearable art. My jewellery collection includes handmade costume jewellery; necklaces, pendants and earrings in magnificent lustres, reflecting oceanic greens and blues, sun drenched earthy reds and purples as well as glowing gold from Australian mines.
