|Husband and wife Marc and Gillie Schattner are international award winning artists and Archibald
Prize Finalists. They have painted together for the last 15 years, working collaboratively on the
same art piece and combining their talent to arrive at a single vision. Every aspect of the art piece
has both artists’ minds and hands on it, reflecting their individual passions and influences in life.
Gillie and Marc Schattner’s art draws on their work in the fields of graphic design and advertising,
as well as Gillie’s experiences working as a registered nurse.
They have worked with the Smile Foundation, The Black Dog Institute and Australian Red Cross
Blood Service. They are also successful portrait artists, and were recent finalists in the Archibald
Prize. Specialising in children, pets and celebrities, their portraits are in international demand. Their
subjects include Rhonda Birchmore, Scarlett Johannson, John Konrad, Archbishop Pell, Dr Harry
Cooper, Jimmy Little, and the late Peter Brock. Marc and Gillie have had over 30 solo exhibitions,
and are hung in prominent corporate and gallery collections.
