Artist Profiles

Jill Treloar

Jill Treloar’s art journey began in Winchelsea in 2000 with the course ‘Artways’, and studies in oils and watercolours with artist Amanda Hyatt, Ray Woods, Robyn Kittlety Rodman and Lianne Gough. Jill has been with the Riverlee group since it’s beginning and involved in many group exhibitions they have taken part in the Surf Coast Trail since it’s inception. Living on a farm in her childhood and owning a flower farm in later years. Jill’s affinity for the natural world is evident in her realist and abstract works.’ Jill has five oil paintings for sale.

Rosemary Harris-Arnott

The influence of her upbringing along with times of riding her horse through the Australian countryside inspire Harris Arnott’s work, as does beach walks, bush and grasslands of the Surf Coast and trips to central Australia. Rosemary grew up on the land and is inspired by nature, as demonstrated by her oils of environmental landscapes and series of found nests. She strives to create peaceful art works that reflect the places and things that she loves- showing natural light at different times of the day and seasons. @rosemaryharrisarnott also currently has work at @eaglesnestgallery and has been awarded in 2019 ‘Best painting at Anglesea Art show for ‘River Red Gum’, First Prize Portrait of People with Animals for ‘Wally Conron- still riding at 90’ Geelong Arts Society and also Best Exhibit, for ‘Wind in my Hair’ Angair Art Show – We have three of her gorgeous paintings for sale.

Jacinta Bishop

Jacinta has always found the nature of beach walking very restorative and revitalising. Over the years, while walking, she has collected many colourful pieces of sea glass resulting in quite the collection. She began making circles and mixing the different coloured glass on a piece of board and before long all shapes and sizes of arrangements were occurring. Unlike mosaic she enjoys working with glass shapes as they are found on the beach. So the irregularity is a part of the piece. Thus, the walking and finding has evolved into a restorative and creative pursuit for her.

Sally Miller

Sally Miller lives and works on a farm in Winchelsea. She cites a life cultivating and observing the land, and natural environment as her primary inspiration when painting. Training in Fine Art at RMIT, she began her creative practice specialising in ceramics and has spent 10 years refining her technique. Her loose, organic brushwork captures the striking variations in the Australian landscape that have caught her imagination at home and during her travels. Sally has recently shown her drawings and oil paintings in group exhibitions at Geelong Art Society, Winter-garden, 2016 Belle Art Prize @chapman_bailey_gallery, @surfcoastartstrail and @surfcoast_artspace Sally is currently working on a series of horse paintings depicting horses in motion with the intention of conveying the movement. Horses are a lifelong passion of hers.

Veronica McDonald

For Veronica, painting has been an important part of her life for many years. After a very fulfilling career as a midwife she finally listened to the words of her high school art teacher and followed her dream to paint. Those years for her have been extremely satisfying. A journey that took her to many places meeting any people with a like minded interest. The formation of the Riverlee art group in Winchelsea was a great influence in her life. An outcome of this has been the Exhibition by the Women of the Hinterland. A group within a group. Country women whose association with the land goes back to their childhood and their ancestors. Those who have been influenced by the seasons. The circle of life on the land. Native flora and fauna. The ocean just over the horizon. Inspiration to paint…everywhere. Her stunning painting Shipwreck Coast’ is for sale -100 x 90cm, $1000.

Penny-Fawcett

Penny Fawcett

Penny has enjoyed painting for many years.  She has been a part of different groups, and has attended many workshops over that time. She loves to share ideas and knowledge. Penny has been fortunate enough to have painted with Edward Heffernan, Geoff Mainwaring and Robyn Kittelty Redman, who are all great artists and teachers. She still has a passion for painting in many mediums. Oil, Pastel, Collage and watercolour. She has been known to dip her brush into her wine by mistake.
