Donna Ritchie-talks about her art below:

In my recent art making I often use children’s nostalgia triggers, such as tongue twisters, toys, generic monster shapes etc which creates a sense of play and humour, while delivering more serious messages.

The issues that keep resurfacing in my work are comments on social, environment and political changes.

I began my art practice in a shop on a bridge many years ago. I sold mosaic tiles in Bath, a Roman city in England. It was beautiful and inspiring. I'm now based in Tasmania, which is just as inspiring and just as beautiful.

What both places have in common are bucket loads of issues to create from, because we really only have one planet and only collectively can we help it stay on track. Art helps.




Taking inspiration from the bold richness of Smalti, Tani’s passion for mosaics has grown into a passionate affair with colour and shape. Each year that passes introduces new people, places, concepts and the desire to learn and create amplifies.

Tani Bates, mosaic artist in sunny Queensland offers workshops and is open to commissions.
