Rhett Brewer Rhett and I grew up together in Georges Hall, what was then one of Sydney's Western Suburbs; Rhett was one of the 14x artists in the exhibition Suburban Noir which showed late in 2013 at the Museum of Sydney
Pierre Cavalan extraordinary jewellery often using found object, now working on very large pieces, sitting somewhere between collage and bas-relief sculpture.
Paul Gilsenan is the Duckman. Pauly was a longtime resident of Hibernian and very much a part of the Knot Gallery crew. These days he runs his own art gallery in Redfern, in a little back lane behind the railway station.
Di Holdsworth is an accomplished artist working with mechanised found object, creating intricate dioramas. She is represented in Sydney by Stella Downer Gallery and is also Rhett Brewer's life partner.

Garth Knight intricately detailed digital artwork based around fetish, jewellery and sometimes stained glass
Owen Thompson is a member of the Australian Watercolour Institute, a very exclusive and prestigious group of artists. Living in the Blue Mountains, Owen's work often features mountain bushland and wildflowers. We met years ago when both teaching at The Cottage in Mosman and have remained friends ever since.

Julie Vulcan investigating the intimacy of the everyday, the power and the symbolism of the ordinary
Ana Wojak some of the most intense performance work I have experienced; also a beautiful painter and object maker; pieces possessing such depth and poignancy they will at times take your breath away

Graham Crawford, AKA quicksilver has published several graphic novels and has had his earlier website archived by the National Archives. He was accepted as a finalist in the 2021 Bake Prize for Religious Art with "Silentium", an embroidered Bishop's Mitre commenting on past sexual abuse and cover-up. Graham and I were partners 1999-2001
Olivia Hamilton is my daughter. She lives and works in Newcastle, has been studying ceramics for some years and staged her first exhibition, a joint show with friends at Back to Back Gallery in late 2019. Her work is thoughtful and considered, often delving into deeply personal issues, and is more about concept than object.
Matt McCosker is another former denizen of Hibernian House and frequent participant in 107 Projects, Redfern St Redfern
Robert Knapman is a talented photographer with a keen eye for that magical moment. His work has been published in Evolution Media publications as he tends to specialise in documenting the LGBTQ community.
Mo Orkascevski I've known Mo since she graduated from Sydney College of the Arts in the early 1980's. She later studied glass engraving under Anne Dybka and was an excellent practitioner of that craft. Mo & her partner of more than 20yrs, Rod Morgan, launched The Complete Works of Old Man Crow at Artsite Gallery. Sadly Rod passed away early Wed morning, 19th Jan 2022. "His heartfelt lyrics seasoned with wry observations of life in
Sydney's Inner West" will continue to be enjoyed by many. He will be sadly missed.
Yiorgos Zafiriou a fascinating man, difficult to categorise; there is sometimes an object component to his performance work. His own body is a major site for his artwork.
