Hayley Gillespie

Australian Artist

Born in London in 1972, Hayley Gillespie relocated to Cairns in 1996. She has been a professional artist since 1989, in a variety of guises. From theatre and set design, artwork for London Council and Royal Park’s, and designing and decorating children’s furniture for the exclusive retail stores of London.
In Australia she has worked in painted advertising, brochure design, signs and murals. Deciding to concentrate on canvas in 2003, she has drawn inspiration from her own childhood in 1970`s, Australia`s colours and lifestyle, and the iconography of both.
She has a live model who comes home from school everyday, full of material which is incorporated into her work, that means each picture has is own story behind. Each painting is executed in her favourite acrylic, and signed with an unobtrusive. In addition she teaches at art Galleries and held different workshops.
We are very proud that we have the opportunity to display her work in our Gallery in Kuranda to show all the people visiting Kuranda from all over the world her incredible unique pice of art.
