Red Cloud Studios
Red Cloud Art Space is not simply an online store and gallery it is a physical studio space set aside for local artists to create, innovate and design. With the belief that collaboration and community create something even more special than simply art.
The studio space is not only home to local artists but plays host to a variety of art workshops and events. The space can be hired for such occasions and has developed into an inspiring space for budding artists.

She has been actively involved in the annual Sustainable House Day, assisting in showcasing some of her past projects. She also holds talks and have been participating on panels discussing sustainability in the built form. Born in Sweden, Pernille studied fine art and graphic design in both Sweden and London, UK. Being a parent she has a passion for the environment which has her being involved in various community groups, one of the more famous ones being Greenpeace.
Her interest in architecture and the built form led her to study building design at TAFE, completing the HIA Greensmart course, the MBAs Green Living.

Adima, also known as Swami, is a creative soul, both musically as well as with timbers. This has seen him build not only highly regarded musical instruments but also furniture and art installations. He has a passion for recycled timbers and found materials, turning them into finely created objects of desire. Recycled materials not only minimises harm on our planet by re-using / upcycling but can also add texture, history and depth to a piece as no virgin material ever could.
Adima was mentored by his uncle for many years, downloading generations of experience which is now being manifested in some amazing, adored and loved pieces around our state, both in the residential as well as the commercial market.
Being deeply creative, Adima can be found in his workshop creating, experimenting and joyfully putting together beautiful pieces, be it tables, benches, drums, ceiling and wall panelling. He takes commissions on request.
I started out using charcoal and exclusively drawing chiefs, eventually I graduated to mixed mediums. My work is based on capturing a piece of art that looks like it’s been cut out from the street. I focus on using contrasts between black and white imagery and colour. To do this I use a mixture of spray paint, acrylic paint, oil paint, house paint, textured paste, clip art, plaster and fibreglass. I include large amounts of texture in the paintings to give the impression of erosion from external exposure.
Past solo exhibitions include “Albert & Nikola, 2016”
15 + murals including “Little Brother, blasta brewing”
I hope to keep on experimenting and challenging myself in the future.
