Demi Gerardi

I have been in love with art and design since I picked up my first pencil. Constantly creating and making things with my hands, I always knew that I wanted to pursue a creative career

Demi enjoys creating graphic artworks, this builds on her skills of Communication Design where a design brief is like an unsolved puzzle – a puzzle that she delights herself in to find an imaginative solution. She enjoys finding power in a strong concept and unexpected execution. She delights in how boundless communication design is; not being limited to a specific medium; allowing her to do all kinds of creative work such as illustration, typography and photography.

Marie Mason

Marie has been creating art in one form or another for many years. She started as a painter, but after discovering Margaret Preston’s lino prints and the work of Claude Flight and co, she was enticed to printing.  Marie has over 30 years of printmaking experience from Australian Print Workshop and Firestation Print Studio.

Her strongest passion is in her representations of the Australian landscape, for which she uses the reduction lino method. This method gives shapes, colour, and diversity of tone to the images and are typical of each area. She studies the landscape to select scenes within it that best describe it, and really enjoys the process in which a vision in her mind turns into a print on paper. Marie is a relatively new resident of this region and we extend her a warm welcome to exhibit at Gallery on Sturt.
