Alyssa Bermudez   My artistic framework stems from my undergraduate and graduate degree courses in New York where I studied illustration, computer animation and interactive media. Living in Hobart has led me to discover a limitless wellspring of inspiration and meet so many interesting people. Illustration is my direct channel for memory keeping, and I hope to bring joy, delightful subject matter and professional craftsmanship to those who view my work.

Tanya’s background is in Remedial Massage Therapy, Physical Theatre and Textiles. However her work is primarily focused on working with young people in the hospital environment as a Clown Doctor. This improvised work invites each child to direct and collaborate in an encounter of play which is essentially empowering and therapeutic to that child.  Tanya has experience teaching in projects across circus, clown, performance and 3D making in towns and remote communities in NT, SA, WA and Tasmania. She brings the same playful approach to her visual art practice of furniture, costume and sculptural making. Using salvaged wood, fibre and sometimes metal, her work is largely informed by nature and improvising, ukulele in hand… with available resources.  Recently Tanya has been collaborating and delivering natural fibre puppet making encounters for young families on a project with ArTELIER and Salamanca Arts Centre.   www.tanyamaxwell.com
