Antoinette Ferwerda

Influenced by science and art, she enjoys exploring pattern and shape.

Inspiration for Antoinette comes from many things – daily life, art history, abstract expressionism, science and the natural world, architecture, her children’s drawings –  she says she simply loves to create.  An artist, wife to David and “Mum” to Tehya & Lawson, she is the creative designer behind the sold-out success of Ziporah designer towel collection.

Klara Klaric

Landscapes from the desert heart by Klara Klaric – a road trip into the centre of the Australian bush through the eyes of an artist more used to snowy meadows, dark forests surrounded by mountains.

Her unique insight reminds me of Bowie’s “A man who fell to earth”, a freshness of view – a singularity of sight that rewards us with a series of beautiful landscapes.

Peter Ferrier

There is something very Melbourne and very tribal about these footy based artworks, with players captured in flight and celebrating victory.

Peter Ferrier is a Melbourne based artist who has been exhibiting over two decades. Also a regular Archibald Prize entrant, he enjoys painting the human form in his bold figurative style.

For a limited time Christopher will accept commissions, if you would like your pooch painted by Christopher Seater
please email enquiries@artministry.com.au or call 0403 375 557 to arrange.

Christopher focuses his attention on the purity of the unquestioning devoted companion the dog, the hound of our affections with a series of semi-abstract emotive caricatures. His paintings capture the essence, that feeling we have when face to face with our best friend, the mutt who holds our affection and amusement with unconditional trust and love.

“You think dogs will not be in heaven?I tell you, they will be there long before any of us.”
– Robert Louis Stevenson
