Folio: Simone Tippett

Simone Tippett began teaching classes as Union St Printmakers in 2009 and believes that collaboration and the sharing of information, processes and projects, is a vital element of art making.

Folio: Clare Belfrage

Inspired by nature and its various rhythms and energies, Belfrage’s exquisite sculptural objects express her fine attention to detail and belief in always appreciating the small things in life.

Folio: Kaspar Schmidt Mumm

Kaspar’s motivation to make art stems from his experience of displacement and desire to develop an artistic language that crosses cultural borders – a language for the global citizen.

Folio: Jessica Loughlin

Jessica’s glass wall works are elegantly minimal responses to the wide, open spaces of the Australian landscape, especially the salt lake areas of South Australia. Each piece poetically transforms her exploration of time and visibility into visual meditations that instantly appeal for their subdued colour palette and highly refined finish.

Folio: Lex Stobie

Every piece in Lex’s collection reflects his artisanal craftsmanship, as well as his fine attention to detail. The timbers he uses are locally sourced and he creates all his furniture in his George Street Studio, a space he shares with five other artisans in the inner-city suburb of Thebarton.

Folio: Tsering Hannaford

Approaching her subjects as studies of light, colour and form, painter Tsering Hannaford finds inspiration in the everyday. Capturing the beauty in the bloom of a flower, which will be gone tomorrow, or the attitude of a sitter at some period in their life, her true to life portraits, landscapes and still life paintings are rich and evocative.
