2018 - Lois Bury

There is a bit of juggling going on in the artist’s corner, Lois Bury, our Emerging Artist for the TCF18 has a diverse range of styles, work and approach to her art practice.  Besides illustrating children’s picture books and producing gift cards,  Lois paints large-scale acrylic works on canvas, medium-sized watercolour paintings  and acrylic miniature wooden blocks of our favourite avians.  For a little 3 dimensional take, the Bruny Island Boathouse mobiles feature fish, birds and leafy sea dragons. 

Lois is self-taught and has made the break from Nursing, specialising in Midwifery and Diabetes Education to explore and develop a small business as an Artist and Illustrator.  ‘Once I knew there were 12 Endemic birds in Tasmania, all to be found on Bruny, there was no stopping me…..they are integral to just about everything I do!
