Julia Price--ArtistJulia’s Retrospective exhibition was held at ArtSpace Wonthaggi from 9 March to 17 April 2017.

I have been drawing and painting since I was a child. I shared a happy, creative environment of art and music with my parents and four sisters. For the past 60 years I have experimented with various forms of art expression – ideas and media, concentrating on the changing elements of nature. I use many figurative forms within my paintings depicting humanity’s involvement with the earth. My art endeavours have included many Community Artwork activities. I was also one of the original “Tuesday Painters” and became more aware of contemporary works in a move to utilise an imaginative style when my husband and I travelled around Australia in our caravan. In 1979 I formed and became involved with a Group called “The Mind’s Eye Circle of Artists” concentrating on experimentation, modern art concepts and the departure from more realistic styles. I think that I sit happily in the middle of these styles.

A major part of my painting has been influenced by the Aboriginal/Koori culture and this aspect of my development is evident in my work. I prefer to express a feeling in my art which expresses the needs of people in general – to make an art statement. The aim of creating art works is aimed at sharing thought processes developed through visual and psychological experiences with the viewer. I hope that my love of rhythm, movement and music can flow freely within the framework of this type of expression.

Winner of the 2016 Winter Solstice Exhibition with ‘Cowgirls 1’.

Ellen Palmer Hubble with Cowgirls1I am a full time artist currently living at Cape Paterson, Victoria, amidst the captivating skies, beaches and moods of Bass Coast. I recently moved from the Dandenong Ranges and retain a passion for forests as well as rural open spaces.I have exhibited and sold artworks privately since 1985 specialising in portraits, beachscapes, forests and animals. My main mediums are Oils and Watercolour.

Book illustration and commissions are also major aspects of my artistic expression.

Palmer-Hubble is my signature name with credit to my father, Peter Palmer, who also as a painter, inspired me to study art and taught me to ‘see’. My main influences are traditional; from the Renaissance masters, Dutch Specialists, French Impressionists and Australian Impressionists. Other sources of inspiration are Fred Williams, James Gleeson and Blamire Young.

Art is a lifelong passion and an integral part of me.
