Our Studio Story

Studio West End was established in 1998 by Adele Outteridge and Wim de Vos.  Since then they have provided a unique venue for teaching, mentoring, and exhibiting in a wide variety of visual art and design media.  Their work is exhibited, published and collected nationally and internationally.  “The teaching and practice of art is an integral part of our being.  Without it there is no cultural development for humanity”.  (Wim de Vos 2014)

Studio West End promotes a high standard of work practice in design and execution building skills and confidence in media including DRAWING, PAINTING, BOOK ARTS, PRINTMAKING, SCULPTURE AND ART HISTORY.  The studio is an exciting space full of vast quantities of art, books and stuff, collected by Wim and Adele over the years.  It is well lit, inspiring to work in, with equipment available for many media. 

The Studio was originally situated in West End, first in the former Tristram’s factory, then in the former Peter's Ice cream Factory.  It is now in a refurbished warehouse in the Yeerongpilly Corporate Park.

Parking is available on site.  There is plenty of good, reasonably priced accommodation nearby, the studio is accessible by public transport.
