Gillie and Marc SchattnerBiography: 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.
