We understand the security risks associated with making online purchases, and for this reason we conduct our business differently to most online stores. We understand that some products might not be readily available, or that you may change your mind, so we DO NOT conclude your purchase through this Site. Our ordering facilities are simply the first point of contact. You tell us what you want to order through our online ordering facilities, and we will follow it up by opening a line of communication via an email or the telephone. We will advise you of stock availability, whether items have to be ordered in, and of delivery costs. We will advise you of payment options, and once the transaction details have been agreed upon, only then will the transaction be completed.
Art Material Supplies announces our new Artist Forum where visitors can ask us questions, generate conversations, and where you can promote your Artworks.
This Forum is totally FREE, and we welcome all visitors who want to register and participate in a website that is built for you.
Realist Artist of the Month Barry and Lucy McCann
Lucy McCann was born in Armidale NSW in 1958 and studied fashion and dress design at The National Art School which gave her the grounding in draftsmanship and design. She won a scholarship to model with June Dally-Watkins and continued to model with the agency while designing clothing and accessories with the fashion design label, Cue. At this time Lucy was asked to design images of Australian themes for sloppy joes and sandshoes, so the study of screen printing was undertaken, also at The National Art School. She has been a teacher of art for 13 years, in Australia, New Zealand and Italy. Barry McCann
Barry was born in 1962 in Armidale NSW Australia, where he now lives with his wife Lucy, also a full time artist. Together they run McCann Fine Art, producing, selling and teaching art. He is the recipient of numerous awards and prizes and his works hang in collections around the world. Barry’s interest in art began with his love of drawing as a young student presenting school assignments with more illustrations than text and developed further as a young adult during his college years. Drawing became a way of gaining some pocket money and new friends. His subject matter usually involves an animated object with a dramatic light effect and enjoys the constant challenge of trying to portray the illusion of both movement and form with a narrative theme. The pursuit of conveying beauty in his work is paramount. He believes that art is a visual language and should need little explanation… you should just like looking at it. Finding the middle ground where traditional representational art can be fused with a more modern look is something he strives for.
