ANN KIRKWOOD : Mosaics Artist

I began my mosaicing journey over 19 years ago after attending a beginners’ course held at the Albury-Wodonga Community College. Since that time, I have been addicted to the wonderful world of mosaics!

I currently have works for sale at the GIGS Art Gallery on the Lincoln Causeway, Wodonga.

Having now retired from work, I am more than happy to share my knowledge and skills with others. I create my projects using tiles, china and stained glass on many varied bases including pots, frames, birdhouses, birdbaths, guitars, tables, mannequins and many, many others.

I have been tutoring in mosaics at MAMA in Albury for the past few years.

HELEN HILL : Painter

Helen Hill trained as a Secondary Art and Craft Teacher in the late sixties, and continued to teach until 2013. She taught ESL in South Korea and China, often using art as a stimulus in the classroom.

Since 2004, Hill has revived her solo art practice, in 2D and 3D medium, returning to formalised organic and landscape themes inspired by her ongoing travels, engagement with the natural environment and the people in her life.

JUDY ROSS : Cutting Edge Mosaics

Art in all its forms has been of strong interest to me all my adult life. I have studied a Diploma in Art (Weaving and Fabric Construction) through CSU. It and a long Nursing career have been my mainstays!

In more recent times Mosaics have become my passion and so I am taking every opportunity to extend my techniques.

Currently, I am sharing this enthusiasm through teaching mosaics at the Albury Wodonga Community College and at the Sustainable Activity Centre (SAC).

LOIS JOOS : Painter

I call myself… wife, mother, nurse, artist, gardener and wine taster. I have always loved and dabbled in art. Starting in oils many years ago I recently fell in love with watercolours after attending classes by local artists Robyn White and Charles Sluga.

I love the unpredictable nature of watercolours and find much inspiration from watercolour artist Jean Haines.

Now I work part time and my children have moved on I have more time to paint and I’m enjoying the challenge of exploring more mediums and techniques.
