Local artist Hayley Gillespie (HJ Gillespie) and Nellie Ireland Photography have joined forces to create whimsical pieces of artwork for the kids of Cairns. This all started with an idea to mesh Hayley’s artistic skills and Nellie’s photography skills and create something never done before and truly unique. Children’s hopes, dreams and what they want to be when they grow up have been painted into the photograph with oils. Some of these pieces of artwork were featured in an exhibition at the Cairns Regional Gallery.

Due to the high demand of personal work from both artists, bookings open only every quarter year. Our facebook page can be found here where we update more regularly our open times. If you are interested in having an artwork done for your child, please feel free to contact Nellie for more information.
