Heather Gall Fine Art & Studio
...a world away from the hustle & bustle...
Painting commercially since 1985, I have sold my paintings throughout Australia and overseas. I am influenced by the natural environment and have a passion for Australian landscape and wildlife. My contemporary and prescriptive works are lively and vibrant. Largely my painting style has evolved through self experimentation. More recent works explore the musicality, tempo and moods of the environment and the disordered order within the natural world. My paintings,children's books and art cards are available from my studio and via my website. I also participate in the Arts Connect Inc Open Studio's Program as per their calendar.
My studio sits overlooking the magnetic & ancient Glasshouse Mountains on our third generation family dairy farm. Here I conduct my visual arts practice and offer a range of workshops and classes facilitated by myself and sometimes other artists. I welcome small groups for 'plein air' landscape / mixed media / mindful arts experiences. There is good accommodation nearby as you can also take in the ambiance of the beautiful Hinterland townships of Maleny and Montville. Group inquiries welcome. My studio is open for small 'interest groups' and individuals by appointment.
In 2002 I illustrated my first children's book for environmental publisher and author Jill Morris. Since then I have enjoyed an inspiring journey, creating books with Jill. I have loved many interactions with children in schools and at Jill's Book Farm at Maleny. Recently I have traveled to rural areas working with wonderful bush kids! I love the challenge of interpreting and extending the story through image in children's illustration. It is so rewarding to share and inspire young writers and illustrators. I am available as a facilitator/presenter at your school! (Prep-7)
