Joy Brentwood and Ian Pascoe live and work (with greyhound Iggy) in beautiful Rhyll on Victoria's Phillip Island, and find that the beauty of the island and its boats and birds and wildlife and plants are constant sources of inspiration for their art.
See our new Collaborative Works Portfolio for works painted by both of us!

Joy and Ian recently participated in a Pop-up Exhibition in Cowes, Phillip Island, to raise money for the development of an Exhibition Space for Phillip Island and South Gippsland artists.
The exhibition ran over 5 weeks in January and February, with 4-5 different artists every week, exhibiting works in various media.
The exhibition was a huge success, and will enable work to begin to create a place where local artists can display and sell their works and an arts hub for the community.
Joy is once again invited to enter the Australian Art Excellence Award at AGRA Galleries, Nov 6 - 24, 2019. Joy has entered three of her wonderful Watercolours on Yupo - see them in her portfolio. The three paintings came out of our visit to Arkaba Station in the Flinders Ranges in August. So much inspiration and many more paintings to come.
After our exhibition 'Synergy' at Meeniyan Art Gallery, we have been busy creating and showing our work at local art shows. We were invited to submit works for 'Round About, the Circle Show' at Gecko Gallery in Fish Creek. This is a show featuring all works on a circular canvas, 30 cm in diameter. Amazing to see the creativity of artists given the freedom to do anything at all as long as it is on a small circular canvas. Check it out at Gecko Gallery Gallery www.geckostudiogallery.com.au. Above is Ian's entry, 'The Godwits are Back!', a collage of two collagraphs and a nature print, glued to canvas.
At the Artists Society of Phillip Island Easter show, Ian was awarded Best Drawing Prize for his drawing 'A Mooring Near the Pier', Indian Ink and Watercolour on Gessoed Panel, 30 x 20 cm, $520
