Up Coming Events
M A HOBBS
M.A. Hobbs has been producing oil on canvas artworks for more than forty years, and currently operates out of a small, home-based creative studio in Berwick, Victoria. As the mother of one of our employees, she is part of the Yarrawood family.
With a particular focus on seascapes and landscapes, she works primarily from photographs of her travel experiences, both within Australia and abroad.
Art is an enjoyable hobby for M.A. Hobbs. She especially enjoys illustrating the drama of a cloud-filled sky and the crashing of ocean waves, drawing constant inspiration from the natural world.
With a Masters Degree in Zoology, John’s work expresses his deep love for animals and their conservation.
John is a keen volunteer at the Healesville Sanctuary, which is a great source of inspiration for his Australian Animals and Birds series.
John’s art has won many awards, not least the Young Artist Award at the Yarra Glen Art Show 2015.
Being a Zoologist John’s linocuts and dry-point etchings truly capture his subject’s unique beauty.
A large selection of both M A Hobbs and John Sharp’s work is currently on display within our Café, and available for purchase now.
