Paige is a gifted Year 12 Arts student who enjoys exploring her artistic talent through our wonderful Arts Department. Our General Visual Arts course, provides an immersive visual arts experience in which Paige can develop skills in several mediums such as painting, sketching, printmaking, and digital art.
Whilst at home, Paige enjoys the sights of natural sea life and draws inspiration for her artwork by gazing out her bedroom window towards the ocean. She is grateful for the support she receives from her friends and family, who are encouraging of her exceptional art pieces. Paige has enjoyed a lot of success in the last 12 months with several of her artworks appearing in prominent exhibitions within the Geraldton's Arts community. The most noteworthy of 2021, her inclusion in the Midwest ArtPrize Junior Division, the Genesis Exhibition, and her print work in the Arts & Crafts in the Piazza. Paige’s work was also featured our 2021 Wavelength publication. This year, seven of Paige's charcoal drawings will be showcased in the Post Office Laneway Gallery.
Paige was the 2021 Prize winner for General Visual Art Year 11, and the joint recipient of the Sister Pascal Award for Year 11. She was recognised after a very successful year in the Visual Arts and for her engagement in Drama studies and involvement in our Musical Production of ‘Alice in Wonderland’. Paige is highly motivated and enjoys spending her time working on her art both in school and at home, and is working hard to ensure her artwork is continually on display in Geraldton, including watercolour whales seen splashing down the road on the planter boxes on Chapman Road. Paige has also enjoyed the financial rewards of all her hard work. She has established 'Paige's Designs', a small business that sells her artworks, including prints of her original artworks during the Christmas markets and on Sunday's at the Geraldton Platform Markets. She has also been busy producing a line of products to sell locally to display her work, such as mugs, stickers, and printed cards. Paige is always looking for opportunities through local art exhibitions to continue showcasing her work.
We look forward to sharing more of Paige's Arts journey throughout the year.
