Thursday 23rd May 2019. Kasey Sealy Kasey Sealy comes from a family of artists, and is a master of oils, acrylics and watercolours. He turned professional very young in 1980 and is internationally recognised, having had many solo exhibitions in London and painted in many European countries.
His great love is the Australian bush. In his own words, “My work is a direct influence of the impressionist style of painting with a direct hand eye co-ordination in front of the subject trying to capture the subtleties of mood, light and atmosphere, always trying to avoid any formulation, sentimentality and cliché, giving the individual viewer a unique visual experience every time”.
Kasey has produced a book on his work and tutorial videos. We are very much looking forward to watching and learning from him.

Jan Cristaudo lives on the Pittwater Peninsular among Sydney’s beautiful northern beaches. This idyllic location, together with her frequent travels, provides an endless source of inspiration. The use of colour is her preferred method of expression and she has a distinctive style using oils on canvas to interpret the subjects that inspire her.
“Colour has always fascinated me. It is the first thing I see, then comes shape and form. As an abstract artist I use colour to interpret the way I see the world.”
Jan will demonstrate using acrylic how she achieves the beautiful colour effects in her art work.
