Glenda Coulthard – Local Artist
Glenda is a self- taught artist, who creates original artworks using; paintings on canvas, alcohol ink on paper, lotus leaf canvas.
Her abstract paintings are contemporary, colourful, and creative to brighten your walls and enhance your decor.
Glenda once said “the act of painting for me is a strange mix of bliss mixed with incredible torture. With most of my paintings, I want to give up a thousand times. It really is punishment, mistake after mistake. I’m constantly saying to myself “what did I do that for?” … “Oh dear, that’s really bad” …
But when I finish a good painting, I’m often a little bit emotional. I’m just so grateful that I have been able to “fluke” the painting. If I was asked to do another painting exactly the same, I’d fail miserably 🙂 “
Anastasia Thy – Illustrator
Ana has aways been fascinated by images and how a human can be represented through the eyes of others, she loves portraits. She’s always been fascinated by people, their dreams, desires, fears, regrets, and sadness.
Naturally, she was drawn to drawing. Her interest was cultivated during her teenage years and further developed when she began her Bachelors Degree in Design (Industrial and Graphic Design).
After completing her degree, Ana delved even more into her drawing practice, which involved loss and regeneration of life. The illustration Ana made for her grandmother before she passed away, made her feel connected with the other world where her grandma resides. The collaboration between memories and connection, Ana cherishes that moment. She feels that the artistic exchange between the individual in the photo and the version she creates in the artwork, opens up her life in many ways.
