 Lois Outjers

 I was born in Melbourne in 1950. ln August I pursued a childhood passion for drawing and commenced Adult Education classes at Macedon Ranges further education centre in Gisborne, improving my skills in watercolour, mixed media, drawing, lead lighting, mosaic, sculpture and silk screen printing techniques. I started using and incorporating pastels in my work in 2001 and more recently, acrylics.

I am currently tutoring a drawing/mixed media class for Macedon Ranges Further Education Centre, Arthouse Direct in Sunbury, as well as Ballan Community House. I have also conducted and tutored classes in pastels as well as conducted workshops and demonstrations for various art groups. I joined the Sunbury Art Society in 2000, and fulfilled the position of Society President for two years.  I have also been a member, in excess of 10 years, of Phoenix Macedon Ranges Art and Craft lncorporated.

My works have been in numerous art shows winning number of awards. I have also participated in Community projects painting bollards for Coburn Primary School in Melton and been actively involved in the painting of a mural at the Goonawarra aged care facility in Sunbury. ln 2009 my art works, along with two fellow artists, were in a successful show held at the Melbourne Airport Hilton. At the 2011 and 2012 Bacchus Marsh Rotary Art shows, my paintings were purchased by the Moorabool Shire Council as part of their 40 year art collection and for display in the Mayoral
Offices.

My work subject is mainly floral, Australian natives, eucalyptus, birds and the occasional landscapes. I have very much enjoyed my journey in the arts and find it extremely satisfying and rewarding.
