Born in Adelaide, Dr Christine Velde, was employed as a senior lecturer in the university sector as a teacher educator.

Over the last 20 years Christine has worked and travelled throughout South East Asia, initially as an academic director of design in China and later as creative artist/writer in Indonesia.

Christine’s fascination and experiences with different cultures have been the catalyst for her non-fiction books and watercolour paintings.

She now lives at Buderim and focuses solely on her watercolour painting, reflecting on her treasured memories of having experienced living in and travelling to exotic places.

Working in mixed media gives Kerry Keyte the ability to adapt and change her artwork, inspired by the light and ocean lifestyle on the Sunshine Coast.

Her art has a reflective quality using light to bring up the colour and intensity of her artwork. She mainly works with resin mosaic, wood and fused glass upcycling her objects into works of art.

Most of her artwork encompassing ocean themes or dramatic tones is practical, which can be used and is not just ornamental art hung on the wall for display.

Kerry describes her artwork as evolving, always experimenting, and looking for new ways to creating and having fun.

Carolan Ciot began working with silver 30 years ago taking weekly classes in Wollongong NSW where she then lived. She stopped working on her craft for a period of time when the rigours of life as a working mum took precedence.

She has always been interested in all aspects of design and she loves and appreciates beautiful things. She is inspired by nature, colour and texture and working with silver and stones encompasses all of this. She really enjoys the journey that creating each piece takes her on. What starts as one idea generally develops organically into something quite different which she finds really exciting and rewarding.

Each piece that Carolan creates is unique and is made from the finest quality silver and gemstones. Her style is bold, stylish, captivating and unique.
