Over the years, he has studied the landscape with its many hues and colours and has developed his own distinctive painting style. Jim's modern, traditional paintings encapsulate the colours of Australia and reflect his great love for this country. He is particularly fond of our native gum trees in all their mystery and majesty. He has held numerous exhibitions and currently exhibits at The Boatshed at Woronora, NSW.
Janet Flood is a potter in her own right and has once again created plenty of magnificent pieces that would look great in any home or office. Janet uses mainly white stoneware, the bulk of the pieces are functional, wheel-thrown and used for domestic purposes.
