About Kristine Ballard:

Kristine Ballard’s work is driven by colour. Selective colour palettes and disintegrated shapes define the unique style she calls ‘Fragmatism’ where images float, dissolve and fragment across the canvas, and beauty is often camouflaged. Deconstructed shape and reconstructed colour is always the focus of her work.

Specialising in still life and landscape paintings, Ballard works at creating the atmospheric colour harmonies inspired by real life experiences.

She has exhibited both nationally and internationally and has completed art residencies at the world reknowned Art Students League of New York and also in Venice. In Australia, at Monsalvat and at the Mornington’s historic Police Point Residency.

Kristine’s artwork has also been licensed for fabric collections art cards. She is also an experienced art facilitator, having run an Art School for twelve years and been the Arts presenter of EdTV Australia.

She creates and directs many art functions, workshops, art mentoring programs and art retreats. She specialises in demystifying the art process and helping students develop their own unique style.

MTAS Gallery June Feature Artist – Catherine Laws

Musson Lane Gallery
June Feature Artist – Catherine Laws

We are very pleased to have Catherine Laws as our Feature Artist at Musson Lane Gallery for the month of June.

Catherine is an award winning artist known for her detailed drawings that capture expression and realism. 

Her ancestors were all Hawkesbury residents — her mother a local of Kurrajong, and her father of Londonderry. She has lived in Bowen Mountain her whole life, and is a singing & piano teacher. 

Self taught as a child, Catherine loved nothing more than to draw her personal scrap book, but it wasn’t until her early thirties that she particiapted in many drawig classes which led to undertaking botanical art classes for several years.

She has undertaken multiple commisssions, mostly pet portraits for loving owners. The medium she uses are graphite, polychromos, watercolour and acrylics. 

She currently has just commenced acrylic painting lessons and thoroughly enjoys urban sketching, her latest project being sketching the historic buildings of the Hawkesbury. 

Come and visit to view Catherine’s beautiful array of artworks this Saturday, 11th June from 10am-4pm. Social distancing and Covid safe practices are in place at our Gallery.

We look forward to seeing you soon!

The address is Unit 2, 1 Musson Lane, Richmond, NSW 2753.
