About the Speakers:
Evelyn is a painter, ink artist and designer based on the Sunshine Coast. She is guided by her intuition and the wondrous ever-present magic of the ocean. She paints textured abstract works with acrylic. And to punctuate the flow of paint, she draws ink pieces influenced by images real or imagined—dreams, nature and adventures meaningful to her.
Evelyn’s design work has spanned editorial and fashion labels. Most recently, she worked with Finders Keepers to develop their new visual branding, as well as textiles for their clothing. She’s also designed for magazines, including Scoop, Spoke and The Side Project Mag.
Alison’s practice explores themes of colour, movement and curiosity, with influences drawn from attitudes of graffiti, activism and sugar pop. Alison’s ongoing series is an invitation for interaction through abstraction. Each studio piece can have as many as 30 layers before resolution. One decision leads to the next and so on … a slow unfolding.
Her current studio works explore energy, vibrations and the relationship to colour for both. Each piece designed to inspire fresh energy and movement to a space. Alison has been showing her work publicly since 2009.
