Josine Tohen is the artist of the month of May at Shearer’s Arms Gallery , 202 Aberdeen St , Geelong West from May 1 – 27 . Opening hours Tues- Fri 11am – 3pm , Weekends 1pm-4pm
Josine is a local artist who was born in the Netherlands . She did not start sketching and painting until after she retired from her work with SBS Radio in Melbourne . Now it has become her biggest passion . After trying out a few different mediums, she has come to really enjoy sketching ( mostly portraits) and mixed mediums such as pen and water colour.
one of her favourite challenges is to find intersting second hand picture frames . She then creates art specifically to fit that frame . Apart from liking the idea of upcycling , it also keeps the cost of her artwork down! Don’t miss this opportunity to see Josine’s beautiful artwork . You will especially be in awe of her sensitive and emotive portraits .
