Well, the first week and a half of retirement has been busy. Nothing exciting, just wading through the mountains of stuff from the Gallery. How did I get all that stuff in such a small space.
It has been lovely to sleep in, feel the sun on my face and enjoy “just being”. Of course, while it’s relatively easy to slow the body down, it’s not so easy to calm the mind. I have lots of ideas for the future and am eager to pick up a paint brush and start slapping some paint around………….but first, think I’ll have another coffee.
It’s really happening. This is the last week. I can’t believe the ride is almost over.
Hurry in and take advantage of super, super bargains of what’s left. Also for anyone with a small business I have packaging and displays perfect for jewellery and gifts.
We will still be doing framing for a while so if you need to have those masterpieces framed send me an email – email@example.com
Keep an eye on this website for any updates and news in regard to Workshops.
So, for the last time, CHEERS,
Farewell, so long, adieu……………..goodbye………………..it’s time to go.
After 10 and a half years I’ve decided it’s time to retire. What a wonderful 10 years it has been doing what I love and meeting so many talented, friendly and supportive people. I have loved teaching the kids in the School Holiday Workshops too. They are all incredible little people with such enthusiasm for art. Mums and Dads please keep encouraging their love of art. It will hold them in good stead all their lives.
Needless to say this has been a difficult decision to make but the time just feels right. Time to spend time in the sun doing different things and to share good times with my husband and family.
Thank you to all my loyal customers, my wonderful fellow painters, to Bulent, Fran, Mike, Hasan and Sahli from Jannali Coffee Station who have kept us going with the best coffee in the Shire and with the biggest smiles around and to my good friend Ramey from Fiori’s Italian Restaurant who always looked after us with the best canapes and service for our Annual Art Exhibitions. I will miss you all more than you know. And last but definitely not least thank you to my husband, Rod, for all your support and love and for the framing you do that makes everything look magical.
THANK YOU JANNALI
We normally have our Group Show exhibiting the artwork of students of Imagine Art Gallery & Studio in June. However, this year due to a couple of “spanners in the works” I have decided not to have an exhibition here in the Gallery, but rather to put the works on my website for you all to enjoy. Sorry about missing out on our bubbly and canapes on the opening night but better luck next year.

Hi everyone. As these holidays are busy for everyone, with quick trips away, the Show and Easter itself, I am not running the workshops these holidays.
Have a great time kids on Easter Egg hunts, the Show and just being on holidays.
Hi everyone. Sorry I’ve been a bit scarce lately but had a short unexpected stay in hospital (all good now) then took off to Fiji for a bit of needed R & R.
Think I’m still on ” Fiji time” but nevertheless we are back to art classes and painting up a storm. Will have lots of great work to exhibit in our up coming Student Exhibition in June so keep posted for all details in a few weeks.
In the meantime thought you might enjoy seeing some photos from beautiful Fiji.
Hi everyone. You might have seen these on my facebook page, but if not thought I would put them on my website.
I painted “Cronulla Deep Blue” in the holidays. Was inspired by our beautiful, hot summer. It is for sale at $350 framed. Measures 78 x 68 cm. Acrylic.
This one I finished this morning. 75 x 75 cm. Acrylic/mixed media. “Green Chantilly”
Hope you like my new work.
