Winter's Warming up in Wonderland!

Hi all,
Hope you’ve all been enjoying the beginning of winter. As much as I love summer you can’t beat winter for the chance to style it up with hats, and boots, and long winter coats!

I’m happy to tell you that our group show “Creatures Lovers and Wild Women” held in my studio with Shannon Crees and Lexi Land was not only packed with a great vibe, but was also successful! Special thanks to Jamie Parker our gorgeous Green MP who helped get the word out on his newsletter and facebook page, and Eastside radio station who kindly helped to promote our show.

That was only a little over a month ago but it feels like ages ago now, so entrenched am I in the next project, my brand new solo exhibition Night Queen, which will be held by NG Art Gallery in Chippendale Sydney on the 29th of July. Exciting!!

I can’t wait to show everyone my brand new work in the flesh! A vibrant mash up of Beauty Queens, Babes in Bikini’s and Beautiful Budgies, Welcome to paradise! But until that date I’ll be most likely painting my brains out!

Thanks to the wonderful who have featured some of my new work in their latest edition on pg 11, and to the ever amazing Real Living Magazine who invited me to create  a cover artwork for their 100th edition alongside 10 other superstars artist designers including Gorman and Martine Emdur, Beastman, This edition is out now!!

I’ve also found a new love…photography, that is taking photos on an iphone! I’m an instant kinda person so it suits me perfectly, goodbye dark rooms from yesteryear and college days! You can check out my efforts on my instagram page @miaoatley which is nearing 600 followers! Happy Winter everyone! xx

Sydney artists Mia Oatley, Shannon Crees, and Lexi Land are getting together to exhibit their visually stunning and expressive artworks for the first time ever.

Having met in their former creative lives as fashion students 15 years ago Mia Oatley and Shannon Crees were inspired to create a group exhibition of female artists after a catch up chat and cup of tea in the studio.

Lexi Land's vibrant and sensual mixed media photography taking herself as muse was a natural fit with the exhibition.

Sharing a common love of creating artwork inspired by the female figure and creatures both real and imagined CREATURES LOVERS AND WILD WOMEN presents a stunningly colourful experience.

The exhibition will take place in Mia Oatley’s beautiful Art Deco studio where visitors will be able to engage with paintings, drawings, photography, and limited edition prints in a warm and inviting artistic atmosphere.

Featuring the works of
Mia Oatley
Shannon Crees
Lexi Land
