About the Artist

Naomie Hatherley in her studioDespite her passion for art Naomie had avoided pursuing a career in the art industry until recently. Following a bout of PND she realised there was no point avoiding that which you love, so established a professional gallery space with her husband in 1995 (Mullalyup Gallery) in the south west countryside of Western Australia in order to nurture her arts practice further and gain an understanding of the industry. Naomie taught across the North West of Western Australia where she met her husband, Eliot, in Newman. From Fitzroy Crossing to London, Bunbury to Mullalyup Naomie has lived in diverse and interesting locations. These filter subtly into her artworks via a fascination with people and their sense of ‘place’ or belonging. She often finds her two little girls, Monsoon (b.2000) and Mirabilis (b.2002) at the helm of her practice guiding her into unknown and challenging destinations. Establishing a gallery in Mullalyup in 2005 was the first step in her career as a professional artist. Naomie and Eliot will be launching their new initiative - the collaborative practice of Mr and Mrs Money in 2008.
