Art Studios

Many of our Artist's and Artisan's studios are attached to their galleries and are open to the public at specific times or by appointment. Some also teach in their studios. You get a special insight for the artist and their work when you can see first hand where and under what conditions they paint or sketch. Selecting with and buying art direct from the artist in their studio/gallery is a thrill and rarity you can experience in the Hawkesbury. Check for open weekends and times on our website or call to make an appointment.

small1613694017.jpg Annmaree Mitchell

I am a traditional landscape artist located in the foothills of the Blue Mountains and have been painting only for the past 7 years. I began my journey by seeking the expert tuition from multiple accomplished artists, not limited to, but including John Wilson, Ros Psarkis, Robyn Collier and Deidre Morrison.

In my journey thus far, I have developed my own style and approach to create moving works that transport you to the movement and emotions they evoked when seen with the naked eye.

I am a studio painter and source images from my travels, creating them in oils on canvas. I also partake in plein air painting when time permits and my preferred technique is pallet knife and brush. Although a hobbiest artist, I have achieved levels of interest that have afforded my own solo exhibition space twice and the opportunity for multiple commission works to date.
