Alison Clarke

Background

Moving from Perth to Denmark in 1996, Alison finally found time to develop her interest in art. Experimenting with various possibilities, she settled on the very challenging medium of watercolour. Following exhibition of her work in the 2006 Southern Art & Craft Trail, she was invited to become one of the resident artists at the Scotsdale Gallery.

Painting

Although her range of subjects is varied, Alison finds flowers a wonderful source of inspiration, providing the opportunity to express vibrant colours with a softness and transparency unique to watercolour. Currently her work is displayed in the Denmark Visitors Centre Art Gallery. Local and overseas buyers have purchased her work.


John Croston

Hours spent drawing parts of plants and animals at university developed John Croston's basic skills in using a pencil, but it was not until retirement that he was able to study watercolour painting. Subsequently he has enjoyed other media of which he has found oils the most rewarding.

Kylie Cocking

Kylie is an artist living on a farm in the picturesque coastal tourist town of Denmark Western Australia. She is inspired by the beautiful natural landscapes, flora and fauna of her surroundings. Kylie is a naturally gifted, self taught artist. She has enjoyed experimenting and developing her own techniques. Her paintings hang in private collections throughout the world and the majority of her current work is commissioned.
