Based in Sydney Australia, Kobie is a passionate artist who shares her love for visual arts through paintings, drawings and art workshops. Kobie grew up in the beautiful countryside of the eastern part of South Africa, and that has deeply impacted the way she expresses herself artistically. Oils, acrylics, watercolour, pen and ink are all part of her tools used to interpret life and love. Kobie paints whatever moves her, it could be an elegant chair sitting quietly in a corner; or a woman, lost in her own thoughts, gazing out of a window....anything that tells a story that she would like to interpret and explore with pencil or brush. Meet Kobie and learn about her artistic travels.

Pamela is a Sydney artist and has been a finalist in numerous Art Awards such as The Blake Prize, The Paddington Art Prize, NSW Parliament Plein Air and the Pro Hart Broken Hill Outback Art Prize. She also won the Gosford Regional Gallery Art Prize in 2014 and again in 2015.
Her work attempts to capture the mood, atmosphere and raw energy of places travelled and experienced. She relies on memory to recreate scenes and plays with colour to entice the viewer and evoke a response. In her work Pamela allows the painting to often dictate her next move and allows the colour and the movement of marks and shapes to play and interact. She finds the best marks made and paintings created are when she ‘looses’ herself for a while in her work.
