ARTWORK BY TRACIE & KATHLEEN BUCKLEY

Kathleen started Folk Art classes in 2000 at the age of five with the Macquarie Towns Art Society, moving to regular Art Classes at the age of seven uder the guidance of Lyn Mantell, before taking pastel classes with Taryn Malzard. She has been exhibiting her artwork since the age of five and has several awards to her name.

Tracie was introduced to pastels in 2002, when Kathleen was attending Children's Art classes with Macquarie Towns Art Society. She attended Art Classes with Lyn Mantell for several years, and now attends pastel workshops at the Old Schoolhouse at Grose Wold with Taryn Malzard. Her commissioned works are mostly dog portraits, drawing on her experience as a dog judge, breeder and exhibitor to capture her subject's unique expression and breed characteristics. One of her portraits was used in a book on Cattle Dogs to illustrate the chapter on Australian Stumpy Tail Cattle Dogs. Member of Macquarie Towns Art Society.
