Yvette studied Graphic Design through National Art School, Sydney NSW. Later working as a book designer with a leading publishing house in Sydney.
Yvette then freelanced as a graphic designer for a number of years at Gunnedah and from 1989-91, she studied painting and drawing through the Tamworth campus of TAFE, gaining distinctions in each course.
Yvette has her work represented in the Gunnedah Civic Collection, Manning Regional Art Gallery, Tamworth Regional Gallery Collection and the Narrabri Civic Collection. Her paintings have been purchased for private and corporate collections in Australia, Britain, Ireland and Japan.
Yvette's work would be generally considered 'traditionalist', enjoying a variety of mediums and has gained recognition for her pastel work, with landscapes being a prominent subject, still life and portraiture are also represented.
Peter began pottery in 2006, attending evening classes through the Gunnedah Community College on a weekly basis. He became more involved after retiring and relocating to Wingham in 2010, where he purchased a kiln and pottery wheel.
Peter enjoys creating domestic ware for everyday use and utilises a variety of clays and glazes that he mixes himself.
He held his first joint exhibition, with two visual artists, at the Manning Regional Art Gallery in 2012. It was very successful with all pieces being sold.
