Danielle’s love of ceramics started when she was in school and never stopped, but her love for tribal art began much earlier as her father had lived in Papua New Guinea before she was born and the tribesmen’s art adorned the walls throughout the family house.

FEATURE SHOW
OUTRÉ GALLERY MELBOURNE

Femke Hiemstra - Website: here 

 

Andy Kehoe was born in 1978 in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, where he is currently based. In 2003, he received a BFA in Illustration from Parsons School of Design in New York.

Kehoe’s work is reminiscent of age-old folktales and myth – featuring whimsical woodlands home to creatures from a place and time which are a mystery to us, that exist to light up the imaginations of all those who cross their path.

Originally an illustrator for Dutch magazines, pop surrealist artist Femke Hiemstra's works became so elaborate that she then turned her hand to fine art. Within her paintings she portrays a Grimm-esque world, where highly detailed animal characters are set against dark, surreal settings.

Her work has since been exhibited throughout Australia, in Europe and the US and featured in numerous publications, including Curvy, Semi-Permanent and Mirior Magazine.
