Jim was born in Sydney in 1941. He served an Apprenticeship as a Letterpress and Flexographic Printer and using this technical background moved into sales in the Printing Industry.
Over the years, Jim has studied the landscape with its many hues and colours and has developed his own distinctive painting style. Jim's impressionistic, modern, traditional paintings encapsulate the colours of Australia and reflect his great love of the land, sea and waterways.
Janet commenced an evening pottery class at Gymea TAFE when her family were young. On completion, the course gave her the knowledge and confidence to pursue her hobby and she subsequently purchased a gas kiln giving her the opportunity to fire her own wares in a reduced atmosphere. Janet is a self-sufficient potter and formulates her own glazes. She is a member of Port Hacking Potters Group.
Maybe you would like to buy some of Janet's pottery.
Joy was born in the Philippines and settled in Australia with her family many years ago. Joy met Todd (Jim and Janet's youngest son) while they were both working on Lizard Island, Great Barrier Reef and they have been married for a number of years. She decided to try her hand at making jewellery, fitting it in when she can with a young family. Her delightful, colourful, creative designs are proving to be very popular with the little ones and their mums.
