Leon Holmes is a professional artist specialising in oil as a medium. As an advocate of “plein air” painting he states “If you want life in your painting, you need to paint it from life. To capture the true light and colour you need to be immersed in the scene and become part of it. That is why I think it is so important to paint outdoors.”

Leon's experimental and risk-taking approach gives his paintings a unique, dynamic and adventurous touch. His art is constantly evolving and changing, capturing the essence of the natural light while telling a story of a moment in life.

Laszlo Lukacs

Laszlo was immersed in the world of art from birth. In 1956 the family left Hungary, and following two years in Italy, emigrated to Sydney. With his father a painter and consummate craftsman, Laszlo studied for three years at the National Art School in Darlinghurst, receiving a strong classical art education. After working as a silversmith for 10 years, Laszlo returned to full-time painting in the 1980s.

As an artist Laszlo describes himself as ‘multilingual’, enjoying painting in a number of different visual languages and mediums, as well as creating bas-relief and free-standing sculptures.

For over thirty years, Neil and Pam Erasmus have been designing, making, teaching and writing about Fine Furniture. Neil was born and raised in South Africa, where he was mentored in the art of furniture design and making by his father, the highly regarded Andre Erasmus, himself a second generation furniture maker.

In 1981, at the age of 27, Neil moved to Canberra, with Pam and their young daughter. He established a workshop, undertaking commission work for embassies, government departments and collectors, and making speculative exhibition pieces. 
Injalak Arts

Named after the world renowned Injalak Hill that houses ancient rocks and art galleries, Injalak Art is an Aboriginal owned and governed non-profit association (NT) that has operated as an art centre since 1989.

The most common fibre used for weaving is the local Pandanus plant. The harvesting, preparation, boiling and dyeing of these leaves is physically demanding, with the women often working together to make this work easier.
