*Timothy Yule: Australian Indigenous Art.
Timothy’s Ancestors come from the Wiradjuri Nation - Central NSW.
Tim grew up in Urunga & port Macquarie which help foster his relationship with the natural world and connection to it. He recently moved to Tweed HEads with his family & is proud partner of KDTY Decor & Deign Gallery at The Strand Coolangatta.
Tim is a member of Aboriginal Art Association of Australia. He was a Finalist at Fishers Ghost Art Awards in 2016 and in 2018 his work was appreciated by Western Sydney University who presented a painting of his to a former US Astronaut. Since 2016 approximately 50 of his artworks have been acquired inclusive of commissioned pieces.
All of his works are original one off pieces which have their own story & importance. HIs artwork is a bridge to connect & respect First Nation Indigenous Art with the modern world through his contemporary colour scheme & style.
*Jenny McConnell: Kingscliff local artist
“I love creating, it energies me. Over the years I have developed work in a range of media but predominately in mixed media and assemblage especially working with images or materials that hold a nostalgic significance.
Being time poor a lot of my early work focused on significant people in my life a a tribute to them and often as my means for dealing with their loss. I have always been fascinated by early Byzantine art and in particular iconic images of the Madonna. I have been surrounded by strong women and done my best to produce a few of my own, much of my early work has always has a focus on women for this reason.
Over time I have broadened the media I work with and moved into jewellery as I view this as affordable wearable art, mini sculptures if you like, that more people can access and enjoy.
More recently I have been developing my Art through the medium of paint, inspired by the beautiful landscape that we live in.
