There is a green sign stating Jala on the front gate and I am directly behind Voytek on Atherden Court. Due to car and vehicle congestion it would be better to park on Atherden Court in the street, and walk the 40 metres in on the sealed driveway.

Robbie Palmer has been painting and creating since she was a young girl, where she would spend hours alongside her mother, a ceramic artist. Her art has evolved over the years experimenting with texture, inks, acrylics and now alcohol inks. Robbie lived in Dampier in the Pilbara for 23 years and moved to Quedjinup two years ago. It was the Pilbara where her art journey began. The rich colours of this ancient land have been a major influence in her art. The stunning aqua of the ocean around the Dampier Archipelago with large tides and currents create immense movement both underneath and on the water, this has influenced her alcohol ink journey. The deep ochres and umbers of the sentient country further inland have also played a part in her art creations. Mark making replicate the diverse corals that lived on her doorstep after many years of observing the underwater world.
Working as an Addiction Counsellor for many years, at times was a stressful role, so to come home and lose herself in her painting was a prerequisite for mindfulness and self care.
Robbie has exhibited many times at the Cossack Art Awards and has won awards at the Dampier Art Awards. One of her many achievement include completing a large commission for Rio Tinto.
Robbie is now immersing herself and exploring the colours of the forest and ocean where she now lives.
