I am a colourful artist, sometimes within the ideas of spiritual healing works on paper, canvas, fabric.
Maggie McCabe is a South Australian painter and designer. Her work explores suburbia and the domestic realm as spaces which bring people together to celebrate culture, familiarity and relationships.
Her 'homewares range' depicts the changing role of women from the mid 20th century onward. The process of upcycling and the repurposing of materials is an important element in her work which references place, time and change.

Marc's images elevate the innocuous to the curious.
Whether atmospheric, graphic, or allegoric, his work focuses on what might be considered unexceptional, or easily overlooked. Images are largely drawn from the street, and aim to find beauty in the banal, colour in amongst the grey, and poignancy and intrigue in everyday life.
They're an elegant response to, and antidote for everyday life.

Margaret Lloyd is an Adelaide artist currently using paint, ink, printing and embroidery to talk about stories and violence.
Margaret’s works reflect the cultures of dry land, farming and horticulture - an outcome of working in rural, regional and remote communities. Others works reflect an experience of the desert and come from working with homelands communities in the Anangu Pitjantjatjara-Yungkunytjatjara Lands. They all mark the geography and cultural footprints on the land.
Contemporary naïve & outsider artist Marie Jonsson-Harrison’s colourful art; paintings, sculptures and Giclee prints will make you feel good and happy to be alive. Marie’s humour will make you giggle and laugh about what inspires an artist to paint everything from her circus roots in Sweden, model life in Australia and share her tales about travel and family in her art blog. She says “I hope also to make you think as even though I paint with humour it is also often with a social comment about the human condition and the world around us.”
Currently working towards an exhibition at BMGART to be show in 2013. This new body of work will further explore themes and ideas about belonging and 'unbelonging',navigation and the environment, nesting, homemaking, kinesis and resting. These concepts will be reflected through free-standing sculptures and wall pieces, using steel paint and recycled materials. The choice of materials, texture, and use of text and fabrication methods, will emphasise the significance of Australian climate on the natural environment and the movement patterns of people.
