Christen Jo Stone

11.00am - 1.00pm

Christen Jo Stone Bio

An award winning artist, Jo has developed diverse arts skills and enjoys combining these, predominately sculptural, whether using clay, wire, weaving natural materials or working with fibres and textiles.

The environment inspires her, which is evident in the organic nature of the work she pursues. 

Currently Jo has a focus on the plight of the endangered species, both plants and animals, that are being threatened by the logging of our native forests right on the doorstep of our city, an environment that needs to be preserved for future generations.

The Leadbeater's Possum is one of her favourites and the fungal networks that communicate in the forest.




 Jesse Graham

 Jesse Graham Bio

Jesse Graham is a portrait photographer originally from the Yarra Valley. Using his time as a photojournalist, Jesse's portraits are simple, often-naturally lit and use no airbrushing to give a realistic and authentic look to his images. He is hoping to photograph 1000 people from April 2016-2019 for his 1000 Portrait Project, and has shot around 300 subjects thus far.


Jesse will be inviting visitors to have their photo taken for his 1000 Portrait Project.

 Nadine Dudek

 10.30am - 12.30pm

 Nadine Dudek Bio

Born in Melbourne and growing up in Canberra, Nadine has a passion for wildlife art with a particular affinity for birds. As a child she spent time bushwalking with her family in the Tidbinbilla Nature Reserve near Canberra, a picturesque valley with an abundance of native birds.


Now based in Melbourne, Nadine continues to develop her fluid style using watercolour as her primary medium. Watercolour performs beautifully to capture the movement and freedom of the subjects she paints.


For Nadine the most rewarding paintings are those with the fewest strokes, the minimalistic approach making her work immediately recognisable. In 2015 Nadine left her twenty-year career as a research scientist to become a professional artist. The decision to paint full-time has been rewarded with numerous successful solo exhibitions and award winning paintings.
