Open Studio Sunshine Coast - Hinterland Artist Trails

Open Studios last year (2022) was such a fun weekend!

If you weren’t able to get here last year, I hope you can make it this year. If you did visit last year – please come again!! I love to share my space, meeting new people and old friends interested in printmaking, or wanting to find out what ‘printmaking’ is ? So.Much.Fun!!

Open Studios Sunshine Coast is such an exciting event. It creates a unique opportunity to step inside the often hidden sanctuaries of artists’ studio. The program gives you the opportunity to visit and meet artists’ whose work you love as well as introducing you to new artists’ living and creating on the Sunshine Coast.

The Studio, my space, is where I create and share my printmaking skills in year-round workshops. I have created a quiet and safe space in the Maleny hills where the natural environment is a constant source of inspiration.

Engage your senses while you have a look around and chat with me about process, practice and printmaking.

There will be work for sale – original and fine art reproduction prints – new and old works. Linocut. Monotype. Etching. Artist books. Hand-made books. Printed scarves. With tea and coffee and nibbley treats to help sustain you through your visit.

Maleny, the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland

The Sunshine Coast Hinterland is a spectacularly beautiful corner of the world … and I am grateful beyond words to live and work in Maleny – the heart of the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. The short video below is a quick snapshot of the area surrounding my studio space.
