A Free Art Exhibition With a Difference
Art exhibitions are often very fascinating, seeing the different types of slants artists can put on things and this particular one is definitely worth going to see!

Two artists, Jackie Peach and Hayley Kruger will be displaying their art at the Exhibition which is on now and runs until the 28th May 2017.

The exhibition will highlight around 50 pieces of work and the unique techniques of both these artists.

Jackie was raised in Perth and spent a lot of time at the beach. It was here that Jackie saw beautiful colours and inspiring rock pools, ocean and the ever changing sea life.

Jackie had always wanted to become a commercial artist and after studying a different avenue after school, she set off on a ten-year tour of Australia, New Zealand, the Mediterranean, Israel, Europe and Ireland.

On her return to WA and following on from her childhood dream, Jackie undertook multiple courses in drawing, watercolour painting, silk painting, textiles and even a full year of design at TAFE.

Life interfered with her artistic plans and around ten years ago, after six months of reflection, Jackie decided that it was definitely time to go back to basics of who she is ľan artist, and follow her childhood dreams.

She commenced art classes and developed her own style, and Jackie now uses mostly oils as well as acrylics. She has since decided she didn't want to do anything else but paint, and so began her wonderful career in art/painting.

Jackie often paints using hidden images and this makes her work all the more fascinating.

Hayley was born in South Africa and her work is influenced by her original home country.

It was there that she marvelled at the wonders of nature, and the joy that colour brings.

Hayley went on to study as a graphic designer. Hayley can now experiment with many different techniques and materials.

Currently, Hayley is painting flowers including protea, frangipani and roses, and has started exhibiting her works this year. She has a real flair for these flowers and most of her works are stunning and would grace any home lucky enough to have one of her paintings!
