Reminder: MTAS Monthly Demo Meeting – Acrylics with Andrea Marriette, 14th November 2023

Monthly Demonstration Meeting
with Andrea Marriette – Acrylics
 7.30pm, 14th November 2023

Reminding all that we will have Andrea Marriette demonstrating Acrylics at our next monthly meeting on Tuesday, 14th November, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Room, Deerubbin Center Windsor.

Come along to see Andrea’s beautiful painting techniques.

Both members and non-members are welcome to join our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Cost is $5 at the door. Supper is provided and please remember to park outside due to early car park closure.

About Andrea Marriette:

Andrea Marriette is a full-time, award-winning artist who loves to express her visions on canvas with colour and texture using various mediums.

Many of her artworks have been sold throughout Australia, the USA, Europe, and by private collectors.

After leaving school Andrea spent 5 years learning & studying art and design through College and University in the UK. Over the years she has also painted murals in restaurants, and kids’ bedrooms, curated and designed artworks to decorate office spaces in Sydney and Melbourne, and has had paintings published in International magazines. 

​Andrea sees inspiration all around her and her creative list is always expanding. But most of her artworks are centered around her love and appreciation for nature, wildlife, and plants. 

With nature, she’s instantly drawn to the colours, textures, and patterns. She then paints it as she envisages it through abstracts.

With birds, insects, animals, plants, and the occasional landscape she applies traditional fine art, understanding the direction of the light and mapping out the artwork to make sure the perspective and ratios are correct. 

Andrea also creates figurative surreal artworks where her vision is to connect humanity more with nature in one artwork.

About Chris Vidal:

Chris Vidal is a contemporary realist artist living in Sydney, Australia. His interest in the arts started at a very young age. He studied classical drawing at the School of Arts in Malta and then pursued a career as a medical scientist and researcher. However, his passion for the arts persisted.

He was interested in oil painting, so he taught himself how to paint using the medium. He eventually gave up his longtime job to pursue a career as a professional artist. His most recent paintings are a variety of still life and travel-inspired depictions of the Australian landscape. Realist and impressionist masters as well as modern painters have an effect on his work.

Chris creates a constant flow of new works and commissioned paintings, from his home studio in Sydney. His works were also published in books and magazines and are found in private and corporate collections in Australia and Internationally.

He is also passionate about teaching people about painting. He has been instructing students in drawing and painting for the past eight years in several Sydney locales. He places equal emphasis on explaining the technique and the rationale behind how it is carried out.

Reminder: Monthly Meeting, 11th July – Tammy Porter, Acrylics

Monthly Demonstration Meeting
with Tammy Porter – Acrylics
 7.30pm, 11th July 2023

This is a reminder letting everyone know that we have Tammy Porter demonstrating Acrylics at our next monthly meeting tomorrow on Tuesday 11th July, 7:30pm at the Stan Stevens Studio, Deerubbin Centre, George St, Windsor.

Come along to see Tammy’s beautiful technique and work in action.

You can register your attendance by email to  info [@] mtas.com.au .

Both members and non-members are welcome to join our meetings to view an inspirational artist at work each month, as well as the opportunity to enjoy networking with like-minded art enthusiasts.

Cost is $5 at the door. Supper is provided and please remember to park outside due to early car park closure.

About Tammy Porter:

As an artist, Tammy has participated in different community and cultural projects using mainly Acrylic paint as a medium. Tammy previously worked in a role to promote the healing benefits of arts and social connections at St John of God Hospital, Windsor.

After attending Nepean TAFE and doing a course in graphic design, Tammy used these skills in her office administration roles and in producing a community directory. Tammy is now pursuing her passion and studying a Bachelor of Fine Art, painting online at Curtin University in WA.

Tammy’s cultural background is diverse, being a mix of Aboriginal and different European countries; she is proud to have been able to reconnect with her Aboriginal heritage, become a member, and paint within a community of people from many Aboriginal Nations.

At present, she uses Acrylic paints with an occasional dabble in Watercolours. She finds that acrylics are highly versatile, from the runny and messy qualities of the pouring techniques; to their suitability for dotting and use in Aboriginal art.

Tammy ads that adaptability is one of the medium’s strengths; furthermore, it can be incorporated into mixed media or moulded for textural applications. Tammy initially saw them as an oil replacement, but now she continues to discover and love this medium.

While studying and painting, Tammy’s inspiration is to find a connection between community and self-expression, pushing the boundaries of ideas to seek and define a unique personal style.

Tammy’s artwork “Connections” was awarded 1st prize at the Hawkesbury Show this year.
