Featured Artists

Rebecca Hosking – Lorne

Rebecca Hosking is an award winning artist, who creates unique, deeply philosophical, engaging, and immersive art. The Fairhaven Fine Art Photographer is inspired to create a nucleus for a sustainable future via archival quality prints, large scale projection compilations, activating spaces via digital art installations, via her “Coastal Pod Productions” film and production component. Inspired to share spirit, to capture, transport, to connect to each other and to the local environment, to share local stories that have an international thread. Connecting, inspiring, and engaging individuals to further engage over issues of importance and strengthening a sense of place. Rebecca’s modus operandi is to create new and cutting edge art that moves and transports the viewer.

The Passerby – Torquay

My name is Shaun, I’m a long time resident of Torquay. I’ve always been quiet, someone who prefers it away from the crowds, someone drawn to the corners and edges, often more an observer than a participant. A few years ago I decided to bring a camera along on my walks and try to capture the things that capture me in this place that I call home – the ocean, the light, the wildlife, the people. My photography lives under the name The Passerby, it just felt like a good fit for the way I go about things.
