An inclusive arts community space - Hive Studios Art Space! - by Sandra Pearce
Hive Studios is an exciting new arts space founded by local artists Lena Tisdall and Sandra Pearce, and is located in Banyo in the northern suburbs of Brisbane. The Hive Studio space houses Sandra’s printmaking and papermaking studio Art from the Urban Wilderness, and is also open to the community and local artists to use for art workshops, studio hire and community events.
Lena and Sandra’s vision is to build an inclusive arts community that nurtures creative authenticity, confidence and resilience. They also believe in the power of art to break the cycle of disaffection towards nature, to enrich lives and inspire care for the environment.
Sandra is a mid-career visual artist with many years of experience in exhibiting her work, artist residencies and facilitating community workshops all over Australia. Her art practice is closely tied to her relationship with the natural environment within suburban Brisbane where she grew up. When she’s not in her studio, you’ll often find her hanging around the local mangrove creeks and bushland reserves.
Sandra Pearce is also a member of NatureArt Lab's teaching team based in Queensland, with NatureArt Lab co-locating at Hive Studios from 2023.
