TBH Studio | Toni Louise, Brittany Wallmeyer & Holly Would

TBH Studio was formed by three co-founders, together they form the TBH in TBH Studio.

Toni Louise | Artist. Art Handler. All-round weirdo.
Every day, my creative practice takes on a new form. Some days, I’m on a mission to challenge and disrupt patriarchal ideologies. Other days, I let my emotions guide me, whether it’s anger, happiness, sadness, or pure playfulness. My art is a reflection of my ever-changing moods and perspectives.

I love to experiment with mixed media, combining collage and printmaking techniques to create unique and dynamic pieces. But my passion for sustainability is what truly drives me. I’m always on the lookout for discarded and unwanted materials to repurpose in my art. That’s why collage is such a vital part of my creative process – it allows me to give new life to old materials and create something beautiful out of what others might consider trash.

Brittany Wallmeyer
Mass media has created an unrealistic standard for women; from the way they act, look and perceive themselves. My art aims to challenge this narrative, encouraging female empowerment. Using collage and digital media techniques to distort images, I create a new sense of beauty that challenges society’s standards.

Holly Would
I see my work as being directly reflective of my own lived experiences. The quality of authenticity I demand from myself is the same in my life as it is in my creative practice. I employ a multidisciplinary approach, and in selecting the medium, I let the message I am trying to convey guide me. The raw and unapologetic nature of my work is a visual response to injustice. It plays an essential role in my mission to claim space in a world that often tries to silence us.

Letita Yates

Letitia Yates

Letitia is most known for her donut paintings. She will have a range of prints, cards and artworks available. Letitia will be exhibiting with TBH Studio.

The Blooming Cat | Sarah Mischker

Drawing on personal experiences and memory, I strive to create questions and cause reflections in my work as a multidisciplinary artist. Working with ceramics, painting, printmaking, drawing, and digital components such as animation and soundscapes, I particularly enjoy creating installations from these mediums with the aim of making something that the viewer can walk into and experience. 

Local artist selling original paintings, drawings, ceramics and prints as well as cards and digital prints.

WBG Designs | Stacey Price

WBG Designs was created in December 2022 by William and Brody. Best mates who love creating crafty things.

Both boys were 12 years old at the time and both boys received the Barefoot Investor book for Christmas.

William and Brody nutted out things they could make, stocked up on supplies, came up with their business name (based around the first initial of their first names, and both boys last names begin with the letter G), created their own logo, booked a stall at the local market and…..BOOM – WBG Designs was born.

They love to experiment with new designs, different mediums, different colors and font combinations – to see what they can create

Cards, keyrings, lanyards, coffee tumblers / drink tumblers, mugs, name tiles, Mother’s Day gifts, Teacher gifts, corporate gifts, wedding hampers, wedding / event signage – limited only by their imagination.
