My artistic, creative outpouring stems from having lived a very interesting and colourful life. Born in London, raised in Devon, then immigrating to an Australian outback opal-mining town, from the lushest part of England to the dry, arid, yet amazing Australian outback. I have been spoiled by two wonderful cultures, lifestyles and weather patterns and through this love of both beautiful countries, I have travelled back and forth several times gaining insight to both their wonderful wealth of offerings.
The most honourable and rewarding unpaid role for me has undoubtedly been that of Motherhood with the uniqueness of raising two beautiful girls 20 years apart in age.
I grew up feeling a rapport with Salvador Dali and am still moved by the mystery and intrigue of his work today. I fell in love with Brett Whitely’s nudes the moment I first laid eyes on them. Kathryn Del Barton’s work lights my fire and drives me to want to paint more often and to paint better.
Marc Chagall also holds the key to driving my artistic passion.
Gustav Klimt’s work is utterly breathtaking in my eyes as is Patricia Piccinini’s. Her most recent exhibition in the Adelaide Gallery left me speechless by its sheer beauty and magic. Frida Kahlo is a huge inspiration not only for her work but also for her courage.
However my most recent inspiration comes from my very talented partner, Renowned Junk Artist Steve Oatway and I have stepped into the magical world of metal sculpture. Receiving my unique Xmas gift of a reliable old arc welder enabled me to create and enter the Adelaide Brighton Jetty Classic Sculptures by the Sea Competition. Being part of Steve’s unique world is a privilege and seeing first hand the process involved in the making of his amazing junk art metal sculptures and dynamic paintings, as only a true Outsider Artist creates, is astonishing. I now speak and understand his language very clearly. From our very first meeting whereupon he encouraged me to let down my hair and throw paint literally all over his floor rug our union now lies written in bold paint forevermore He inspires and encourages me on a daily basis with his constant support on every possible level His Mentorship has helped me blossom in life, love, art and music and our journey continues to be a wonderful work in progress.

Guy Cornelia was born in Buckinghamshire in England in 1979.
Throughout his life Guy has had to contend with several complex
medical conditions since his birth, but he has never let these stand
in the way of his creative urge to paint.
From an early age he drew and painted in a unique style.
Guy won prizes for his art at school, in several Victor Harbor and
Penneshaw Art Shows and has sold in SALA exhibitions and in the above
mentioned shows. He was also in the Prospect Self Portrait Exhibition
as a finalist in 2011. His latest exhibition titled "Famous Portraits 2012" was his first solo exhibition held at the Axis Gallery, Parks Community Centre in Adelaide November 2012.
Despite being described by some as "post-modern", Guy as never
conformed to any recognised style of art - he is defiantly himself
and like no other. His work is instantly recognisable as his own.
Other artists have responded to his work by buying his pictures as
soon as they see them.
Guy's work is hung in private collections in Sydney, Shanghai,
London, Adelaide and on Kangaroo Island.
Guy lives and works prolifically in Thebarton in a house which
overflows with his colourful paintings.

see what we can not see, and make sure to guess, my approach introduces very small dots in a good mood and joy of living in color or grayscale, like an embroidery patchwork graphic which stretches over time through my meditative walks, frugally and sincerely

After a varied and colorful Singular Art period, since the beginning of 2012, I propose black and white artworks which mark a turning point in my artistic journey.
Indeed, I decided to bring some maturity in my artwork in order to highlight my artistic influence* and my interest in Raw Art, Outsider Art, Free Figuration and Tribal Art.
I take a great pleasure to create my new art and I’ll use, in the future, various technics and collage because doing the same things bores me. So my artistic future will reserve you a few surprises...
* Jaber, Chaibia, Picasso, Dubuffet, Basquiat, Combas, Keith Haring

I try and observe and experience the inner life of what is about – and to convey this in my art with as few subjective filters as possible. To open all the doors and windows and let the work dictate what it wants to be to some extent, then combine this intuitive process with an application of technical skills and knowledge.
What do colours mean – and does the meaning of one colour change when placed next to another colour? Can the position alone of a mark within a composition contain information? Can the relationships of these marks to each other carry further meanings?
I don’t like to think of this approach as so-called “spiritual” art. I see it as attempting to express reality.

Throughout my life I have lived all over Australia and have seen many different places before moving to where I currently live in Bundaberg Queensland with my 2 year old son
