Graeme is best known to us as the founder of the Colour In Your Life TV Series. He is passionate about creating and has been doing just that for over 30 years now.
On Australia Day 2017, held January 26, Graeme received the Medal of the Order of Australia (OAM) “for service to the visual arts.” The award is one of the highest honours an Australian citizen can receive.
Graeme donates his time and talents. In 2003, he raised funds for AIDS, Multiple Sclerosis research, and children’s cancer research in the US for the Ripple Effect Project. Three of the works were collected by former President Bill Clinton. He also established a charitable foundation, “Paint Your Life,” in 2013, which uses art to brighten the lives of the disadvantaged or physically impaired.

This multi media art tutorial is Part 2 of a 2-part series on creating the amazing multi-dimensional piece “Stallions of the Heavens”. In Part 1 Graeme showed us techniques for using stencils, inks, gold paint, cardboard and gold leaf; and explained the importance of developing a plan and process in creating a complex artwork like this. In Part 2, Graeme continues building this piece using 3D materials such as beads, air-dry clay and polymer clay, as well as 2-part acrylic resin.
