Martha is a practising artist and art educator operating in Newcastle and Singleton. She has been delivering art workshops and working on art projects in the Hunter region since 2021. Prior to this and from 2002, she resided in London as an artist and a corporate tax accountant.
Martha says, “Art has always been a love and passion for me, from simply sitting down to draw, to looking at artists works, and learning about the stories behind them.”

A farmer from Merriwa, Annie has worked in the Library of Scone Grammar School, volunteered for the Scone Literary Festival, and for 13 years served as Deputy Captain of Merriwa Fire and Rescue.
Annie says, “Art has always been a passion of mine, maybe because of my father and sister both being artists, in England and New Mexico respectively. As a farmer near Merriwa, I sadly don’t have time to do much painting myself, but I do appreciate the wonderful talents of so many of our local artists.
