Meet our local Tamborine Mountain artists in their studios

The full day ArtEssence Art Tour offers a unique opportunity to meet talented artists in their own studios set in the beautiful tranquil Tamborine Mountain and surrounds.

 

Within their serene studio environments you will be able to informally chat to the artists, find out what inspirations they draw on and potentially see them at work.

Art Tour - Tamborine Mountain Artists
Artists at work - Louise Grove Wiechers, Richard Roper and Monique Quarantini

The artists' repertoire includes painting, drawing, ceramic art, sculpture, pottery, printmaking and hand made books.
Mixed media painting adopted by some artists demonstrate the use of ink, aluminium, coffee and bitumen.  Acrylics and pastels as well as a combination of graphite, charcoal and oil paint mediums have been adopted by other artists. Another unique technique adopted by one of our artists is the use of banana leaves from her garden.
