Tim Derwent :

Born in Australia in 1965 Tim has spent years mastering his unique combination of oils and acrylics.

Having toured extensively throughout the outback and fascinated by the colours and light of Western Australia, Tim’s paintings burst with the energy of these regions.

Not satisfied with his tutors of traditional styles, Tim broke away to “discover himself” and not to become an extension of his tutors.

To describe his works the words Colour, Texture, Simplistic and 3 dimensional are used but most importantly Tim creates FUN

If a collector has a wall requiring a statement, Tim’s work will be noticed!

 John Frazer :

Whilst most artists display the harshness of the outback, John’s paintings show the softer side.

This is achieved by using his unique skills with oil paints, creating children or characters and blending them with their surroundings.

John is fascinated by the innocence of the outback children and their ability to be totally amused by the simplicity of their environment.

The children seem to integrate with the blue skies and red dirt drawing us into their unique outback world.

Their hypnotic eyes highlight the naivete of the children – you will not be able to look away from the work!

John’s distinctive style has been developed over many years of devotion to his art and the people of the outback.
