Kat Coppock is an emerging Adelaide artist and curator and recent graduate from the South Australian School of Art. Working primarily with pencil, paint, and collage, her portrait-based work explores surrealistic themes in an expressionistic style. Added text, textures, and an early obsession with abstraction lends some mess to the affair. The resulting work is vividly colourful and heavy in symbology, evoking multiple responses over a period of time.
A gifted vocalist, Kathie possesses an expressive, pure sound, reminiscent of Joni Mitchell. Her music has an eclectic sound that crosses all musical boundaries with a focus on honest musicianship. Kathie's first award was won at age 18, when she performed her own songs with the Adelaide Symphony Orchestra. She has been commissioned to write and record songs for others and was a finalist in the Australian Songwriters Association Awards. She has performed her original music in her own show at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival and has toured her songs across Europe and UK.

Hi, I am a qualified shoe maker & designer producing shoes from Baroque styles, Edwardian styles to Movie character styles of shoes. All the pictures of shoes are completely made by me. I do have many more to show, and am making 8 pairs of new shoes at the moment. I just want to share with my work. Thank you Kay Taylor
Figurative sculpture and abstract organic form have been constants in my repertoire for 35 years. A study tour of UK and Italy in 1992, coinciding with exhibiting work in the Royal Academy of Arts Summer Exhibition London, marked a shift from 20 years of sculpting wood to creating bronze sculpture.
As a self-described observer of people and the world around us, McMillan searches for a question worth asking, then creates a way to elicit a response or provoke thought, for people to reflect on how they see the world around them. McMillan’s background as a creative thinker and qualified building designer sees him strive to pull together works that engage directly with the viewer in tangible ways to shine light on the human condition in a moment of space and time. The influences of people on nature and nature on people form a fundamental underpinning for McMillans art practice.
I have been experimenting with art for all of my 22 years. Now, with the encouragement of friends and family, I have decided to take the next step and turn my passion for art into my career. I particularly love drawing, painting and photography, however I also thoroughly enjoy experimenting with different methods and material. I am currently undertaking a Bachelor of Visual Arts to develop my skills.
What I love most to make art about can be summed up in two words; people and trees. I’m happiest when I can sit and watch clouds roll across the sky or the wind hustle back and forth through trees. Sky blue is my favourite colour. Calm, tranquil; free from hostility, commotion, violence, or disorder. I find much beauty and wonder in the natural world, and sometimes conflict, and this translates into my artwork in a mellifluous way. My work is mainly drawing and painting, in watercolours and acrylics, and recently I’ve begun making short films.
