My artworks are designed to create meaningful connection and are created from a diverse range of media to enhance the character of their settings and create a focal point for discovery by people of all ages.
Angus Watkins is a musician, I think. An artist yes and maybe something else possibly. Everything he does is an experiment so maybe come down to see what he is doing next. He loves oil paints and portraiture of that I’m sure…’
I’m Annie (the photographer) and my partner is Al (the picture framer). Our passion is to create beautiful and engaging images of the Margaret River region handcrafted in unique rustic timber and mixed media frames.
A potter, a painter and a jeweller walk into a pub. “Lets all work together on the same pieces this year,” said the jeweller. “Great idea Steve!” said the painter. “I think I need a drink,” said the potter. Come see our “Shared Visions” exhibition.

Art-installation ‘welcometomylife’ is an immersive experience of what it means and feels like to live as an artist. With humour, quirk and disarming honesty it offers insights that surprise, enchant and provoke.

My work depends heavily on time spent in nature. I create large drawings, paintings, functional ceramics and small sculptures that reference the natural world. Visit my peaceful studio, gallery and garden in the bush.
Karl combines a modern twist on vintage, traditional, americano Tattoo art with Mexican day of the dead style. Adding bright colours and morbid ideas of imagination. All presented on fine timbers and stained ply woods.
Weathered timber and rusted steel is completely under-appreciated. I like to upcycle scrap into precious artworks, by building my own canvases from rusty old milking sheds, and adorning them with portraits of the former inhabitants.
Inspired by history and everyday stories, Lauren creates paintings which often juxtapose classical and suburban imagery. She has had many solo exhibitions around Australia and has exhibited in New York, Italy and Spain.
French-born Australian photographer based in Margaret River. I worked for the United Nations as peacekeeping mission photographer in conflict zones over ten years. Since being based in WA, I launched my second book “Beyond-Above Western Australia”.
Inhabiting space between tradition and technology, creating artworks that celebrate craft and tradition, layering of materials, textures, to create unusual surfaces so integral to her work. Visually describing her connection to place, nature and change.
Working mainly in steel I am always pursuing the creation of something with character, emotion and humour. I like to use re-cycled materials and love the patina and feeling they can bring to a sculpture.
Coad’s figures engage with outer situations, rather than with the viewer. In a return to the themes which dominated Coad’s 2014 series, Juncture, the artist endeavors to describe another unguarded moment in human interaction.
