Chan is a multi-award winning watercolour artist and a highly regarded tutor with international acclaim. Over the last 15years his passion has turned to watercolour, a medium that thrives in spontaneous response and free expression. His mastery in watercolour is manifested by the vast varying subject matter that he tackles from rural landscapes, urban city scapes to coastal seascapes. His bold and loose style is a result of years of devotion and dedication to this elusive medium. His aim is to capture an impression of his subject with as little detail as possible – he achieves this by simplifying the subject to its core elements.

Dee is a Sydney based artist specialising in watercolour portraiture. She is regarded as a passionate and authentic artist, with acclaimed artwork that has been commissioned throughout Australia, the United Kingdom, USA, South Africa, Singapore and Vietnam.Watercolour is her great love; it is the fluid spontaneity that attracts her. Watercolour, as a medium, lends itself to the softness and curves of the human form and allows her great freedom. She usually works on commission and although each portrait essentially begins the same way – with discussion, planning, sketching, watercolour washes and glazes – ultimately the creation of each portrait is an individual experience.

Tony is a watercolour artist from Newcastle, Australia. Tony has been drawing and painting on and off for his whole life but has found his true passion in watercolour only in the past year or so. His work is influenced by modern watercolour masters like Joseph Zbukvic, Alvaro Castagnet, Herman Pekel and Amanda Hyatt to name a few.His style is traditional impressionistic landscape with a strong emphasis on light and atmosphere. He believes a painting should move you emotionally and if you have to explain it, then it isn’t doing its job.
