ELISE PORTER ART

Local artist Elise Porter creates paintings of exceptional beauty and elegance. Whether she paints in a realistic or abstract style, a particular beauty and softness always shines through. Scenes of country cottages nestled in mountains, portraits of foxes and whales, still-life depictions of flowing curtains and exotic post-modern splash art. Elise captures an essential living truth in her images; they have movement, they’re alive and captivate the eye; a demonstration of talent and dedication to art as an expression of the heart.

VERIEST ARTWORK

Veriest Ferrari is a local artist whose inspiration for painting has come from the beauty of local gardens and landscapes of the caldera. With her signature Monet style Impressionism she captures the peaceful surrounds and colourful play of light and shadow. Veriest artworks and a variety of upcycled lamps are on display, for sale at the Pavilion, in the back garden at Flutterbies cafe.

DEN RON ART 

Robert’s passion is to produce colourful, detailed paintings that entertain and delight, whilst creating an emotional connection with the discerning art lover. His detailed naive art style is a true extension of self and comes from the heart. It allows him to express his passion, energy, imagination and humour without the constraints governing traditional art forms. After migrating to Australia from Yorkshire, he adapted his villager’s eye to the foibles, quirks and quaint characteristics of the Australian way of life.
