With an ever present personal restlessness, I have a desire to interpret the natural landscape in its intimacy and boldness. Living and working in the Kimberley and Northern Territory for the past 28 years has formed me as an artist. With the organic mediums of watercolour and ceramics, I respond to the dramatic colour , space and energy of the land and sea, capturing a moment in time.

I hope to inspire others to see and feel through an Artists eye!

Karen’s success in the Arts industry lies in her true connection with the people, students and communities she engages with. Karen is excited to be bringing the Arts and her experience into the Health arena since moving to the South West, with a new Project Officer role at St John of God’s Hospital, Mt Lawley. This is a strong positive link that she has identified and nurtured in her training and engagement with people from many different cultural backgrounds, individuals with disabilities, those who have experienced diversity, and across all age groups.

Karen brings extensive experience from her previous roles:
Regional Coordinator, Creative and Cultural Industries, Kimberley Training Institute

Kelly Gardner is a versatile singer songwriter, musician and looping solo artist. With formidable and adaptive vocals, anthem original compositions, rich harmonies and songwriting that crosses multiple genres, Kelly produces a wide variety of poignant, entertaining (and sometimes even hilarious) repertoire crossing adult contemporary, jazz, funk, indie music and even comedic genres using nothing but a piano, looper and one very powerful yet sensitive voice.

Her latest project “Kelea” is testament to her continuing growth as an artist. “Evolution” (due to be released in October 2017) is a powerful EDM anthem combining house beats with prayer-like lyrics and massive sonic walls of vocal harmony. Never afraid to take risks and break down genre-instilled barriers, Kelly tastefully cross-pollinates “Evolution” with a careful sprinkling of operatic and rock vocal lines, re-inforcing underlying hopes for the development of a higher world consciousness. Recordings of fierce winter winds at her ocean side home studio complete the track, making for an inspired listen.

Our vision: 'Bringing Culture and Arts into our communities, making it accessible to all.’

Kambalda Arts Centre is our home, located at the entrance into Kambalda West, off Goldfields Highway, 55km south of Kalgoorlie, on the road to Esperance. Our centre has an Art Gallery with local Goldfields Artist’s work on display, together with local craft for sale. We are diverse, also having a collection of very interesting history for visitors and provide some tourist information on weekends, when the Visitor’s Centre is closed. The Arts Centre was formerly a service station that was upgraded and is ideal for visual Arts activities, having several compartments, plus a purpose built and equipped Art Shed, with provision for pottery. The history of our organisation, the endeavours to keep the dreams alive and kicking are quite amazing. A guided tour through the complex can inspire, together with some of the “tales”. There are regular workshops that are supported regionally, including attendees from Coolgardie and Kalgoorlie. Artists enjoy our friendly atmosphere in tranquil surrounds and usually ask for a follow on. Our services also include craft days each Thursday, regular monthly Sunday markets in town. We support Country Arts WA’s annual “Shows on the Go”, with performances in the Kambalda Community Recreation Facility in the hub of town.

I began my professional career as freelance photographer in Sydney in 1999, while also working as photographer and desk editor at The Australian Financial Review. My interest in photojournalism took me to Timor-Leste in 2003. For the next decade I worked for the United Nations as a peacekeeping mission photographer documenting life in conflict zones such as Burundi, South Sudan, West Africa (at the height of the Ebola response), East Timor and the Democratic Republic of The Congo. Even though those years spent in the field with my camera were truly rewarding, the nomadic lifestyle took its toll. I needed to drop my suitcase somewhere peaceful, a place where I could sleep and shower safely. I craved open spaces and rugged natural beauty that had brought me to Australia in the first place, as a 27-year-old seeking adventures far from my European homeland. In 2013, I returned to Australia and established a home base in Margaret River. My first project since moving to Western Australia was a photographic exhibition and book launch in July 2014, titled Margaret River Region FROM ABOVE, a self-published book on aerial views of the South West region exhibited at The Margaret River Gallery. In October 2015, I exhibited Gungurrunga Ngawa (Look Above). A series of photographs shot above the Western Australian Goldfields salt lakes as part of my on-going project 'Ngala Wongga' documenting both the landscape and the region’s inhabitants, as well as the cultural significance of the Goldfields languages.

Sailing in Exmouth Gulf is safe and convenient as long as one pays attention to the tides and weather forecast. Racing occurs throughout the year every second Sunday and most races are held in the gulf just off from the EYC itself.

There are a number of club boats that can be reserved and used by members or visitors to the club. On occasion, special races are held some distance from the club and may entail a camp overnight- this may be on the west coast at Tantabiddi or in the gulf at Tamarisk, some 30 km south of Exmouth.

The club could not survive and thrive without new members so anyone interested in the chance to sail a catamaran, whether as crew or skipper, should come along on race day for some good fun and sport!

Born in Western Australia, Joanne Duffy uses her combination of a Bachelor of Arts (Design) and self-taught experience to depict the Australian landscape in an Expressionist style. Her paintings draw inspiration from her childhood experiences of growing up in rural WA and the love of native flora and its environment. Joanne’s abstract expressionist style explores her interests in our landscape and the emotional responses and memories it evokes within us. Her intense use of colour and sweeping brush marks create a sense of movement within her paintings, evoking glimpses of Australia’s rural landscape. The resulting artworks are reflective, full of vitality, intense colour and emotion. As an award winning artist Joanne’s work is held in private collections through Australia, Singapore, Germany & Malaysia. Representation: The Studio Gallery, Yallingup; and Gallery 360, Subiaco.

The image provided is of Joanne’s oil on linen painting titled ‘Sunset Ridge,’ winner of the 2016 Wickepin Art Prize and currently in the Shire’s Art Collection.

Originally from a Yorkshire farming family, I became a Special Needs teacher before migrating to WA with my family in 1988. We settled in Gidgegannup, and established a large commercial goat dairy.

Since retiring from farming in 2005, I’ve had time to pursue my neglected interest in art. Initially, gaining a Certificate 4 in Visual Arts and Crafts (Challenger TAFE, Rockingham); followed by a BA in Fine Arts through Open University (which included studies in computer skills, social media, and web design).

My art is inspired by nature and ecological issues. I believe that the protection of our environment is the fundamental global challenge facing humanity today. Artworks can be powerful tools, opening people’s hearts, eyes and minds. By sending a strong, visually compelling message, we can help people see beyond their daily worries, and perhaps help to provoke grass-roots action towards a sustainable, ecologically balanced world.

I have now settled down here in beautiful Albany, on WA’s South-West coast, to develop my practise – and to follow my dream.

Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company is committed to sharing stories with our community, created by our community, through theatre.

Yirra Yaakin (Yir-raarh Yaarh-kin] which means “Stand Tall” in Noongar language, is one of Australia’s leading Aboriginal performing arts organisations producing award-winning, world-class theatre that is exciting, entertaining, educational, authentic and culturally appropriate. Established in 1993, the Year of Indigenous People, as Yirra Yaakin Noongar Theatre, we started off with one successful funding application, three staff members and the desire to provide the Aboriginal community with an artistic outlet for positive self-determination. More than twenty two years later, Yirra Yaakin Theatre Company, with a combined board and staff of 18, has evolved into a respected cultural leader and artistic hub for Aboriginal people from all over Western Australia, Australia, and indeed, around the world. Our stories have reached 13 countries in five continents and we have won awards for our theatre, governance and our partnerships, including a prestigious Sidney Myer Award for our record of facilitating Indigenous artistic programs. The company has commissioned and premiered over 50 new theatre works. These include major Festival presentations such as Waltzing the Wilarra, One day in 67, Aliwah, Windmill Baby, and Cruel Wild Woman. Prominent Aboriginal writers have included Dallas Winmar, Mitch Torres, David Milroy, Sally Morgan and Derek Nannup, amongst many others who have contributed to the Yirra Yaakin experience. Yirra Yaakin is proud to have produced a body of work unequalled in innovation, excellence and cultural significance. However, it’s not just our professional performance program that has won us awards and critical acclaim. Yirra Yaakin has always had a broad education and community engagement program with a development base to ensure we continue to have Indigenous trainees working within the Australian theatre industry. Yirra Yaakin’s priority is to ensure Aboriginal theatre remains under Aboriginal control and keeps providing opportunities for Aboriginal artists at all levels of theatre creation and production.
