Salmon River Studios is based on a 52 acre farm nestled on the banks of the pristine Salmon River- just across from the town of Tamworth. Our large timber barn and winter studio offer year-round arts and educational programming including art lessons and workshops in all media, arts integration workshops for educators, artist residency programs and other community centred cultural activities.
Wendy Cain works with the practices of Handmade Paper. Paper pulps that are beaten for extended periods of time become fluid and can be used in similar ways to more traditional painting techniques.
The difference with these works is that the materials and the image are fused, producing a very different surface from traditional painting. Wendy uses the local landscape and her garden as inspiration.
