I'm a Brisbane-based artist, and I've been painting and drawing since my early childhood days. I was fortunate to receive a scholarship from the Queensland Art Gallery, which gave me ample opportunity to pursue my passion and hone my skills.

I'm very much inspired by the beauty and diversity of Australia. Many of my paintings focus on landscapes, surreal, animals and people. North Queensland is a particular favourite, and you'll see the influence of coral seas and mountain landscapes throughout my artwork. I have a post-impressionist style through which I try to capture the wonder of the world around us.

I specialise in pastel on card, and acrylic on canvas, though I'm also experimenting with abstract and air brush.

I've been fortunate enough to display my work in many art exhibitions, and have been the recipient of many prizes and awards.

I offer Paint and Sip sessions along with Clay and Sip sessions, both at discounted rates for Class Bento Patrons. I believe in bringing these experiences to the customer at the very best competitive price possible, the real Australian Way. The Retail on these sessions is $45 however I offer Clay and sip at $29 per person, and Paint and Sip sessions from $19 per person on the Cheap Tuesdays and Thursdays. Our Friday and Saturday nights are also the most competitive prices found in Brisbane discounted down to $25 per person. We offer the highest quality service with artist assistants to help customers with their paintings, along with the teachers. Our assistants will also run sessions so we will have two teachers for a single session. We have the largest range of paintings available with over 80 paintings on the gallery page of Wesley Taylor Art Studios, with the painting for each week can be found on the web page.

We have some new experiences coming available with Candle making and soap making. These will also be offered at the most competitive prices to bring them into reach for everyone. We hope you enjoy these sessions for a fun experience. The paintings are creative for maximum impact of colours, while keeping in mind for first time painting experience. Those with little more practice will create some amazing pieces

Let us plan your special events!

These classes are conducted for art enthusiasts and newbies alike. They also make for great team-building activities.

Private Functions are available with a minimum of 5 people up to 80 people in a single session.

“everyone has an artistic flair and simply needs to be pointed to the right direction.

Hand Built Pottery Workshop review by Jay Hockey-Smith

Tylah Cameron Mar 2022


Unfortunately this was one of the most uncomfortable worst experiences I have faced to date. The instructor was extremely inappropriate towards my friend and I (young women). We were in a small group with only one other couple, and I saw that they were just as uncomfortable. Throughout the evening the instructor made constant “jokes” that overstepped the line, and despite our uncomfortable laughing or zero reaction, he persisted. He went so far as to ask if we had “any furry bits” referring to our pubes and asked my friend if she needs “a wing ding”. I felt sick. He also made some very sexist comments saying that all women want rings from men and that we would never get a ring. If the instructor really is oblivious to how his “jokes” come across to women half his age, than take this review as a warning. I will never return and will never take another woman here. You ruined what was meant to be a gift for my friends birthday and left us feeling disgusting.


Reply from this teacher:

Hi Taylah, I’m sorry to hear how disappointed you were with the session, and did not mean to have connotations to yourselves when referencing the clay has furry bits, or when cheers and then glass sound makes ting ting, as plastic cups. I will take this on board for the future for sure to use different words if taken out of context and misunderstood. Thanks for bringing this to my attention. To make up for it I would like to offer you to come back for free with a session with one of our twelve female teachers, apart from Clay and sip, we have Paint and Sip, Paint Pouring and Candle making which I'm sure will bring you some joy.

The instructions from the teacher were clear, I had never done hand-built pottery before and I came home with satisfying results

Had a lovely time and the teachers were helpful though it was a big class it was hard to see what the teacher was doing as she mainly stuck to the front of the class which made it hard for those in the back to follow along. They also encouraged us to create freely and not to follow exactly along which I liked. Venue was nice and you could have drinks and food delivered to you from the restaurant next door, just maybe wash your hands if you decided to order some finger food! Not a lot of space on the tables to eat a full fledged meal haha. I'm happy with the outcome of the products and would definitely recommend if you're a beginner or seasoned artist!

We had a great time and the instructor was very helpful throughout the whole session

Rani Fouladoux Jan 2022


When we arrived the table was set beautifully but the chairs were so close together, we would have been touching elbowsduring Covid times this isn't normal.
The teacher was great about it and moved the settings so there would be more space.
The class went too fast, it was hard to keep up and we finished in less than an hour instead of 2h (like stated on the booking). Then the teacher gave us moulds to play with the clay and at 12:40 we had to leave instead of 13:00.
I thought the clay was supposed to dry fast, it took 3 days, so after the class we were left with our clay stuff on a plastic plates, if you take public transport it isn't practicle at all. Maybe you should tell people to bring boxes to carry their non dried "art" back home. Also specify that the class is only an hour long.
Thanks anyway, I liked the final product.

We were a group of 8 celebrating our end of year get together. Aged from 18 to 62 years.
The Pottery Class was a perfect choice of activity as we all enjoyed the class and took away our creations.
Venue was good, teacher was good.

Nicola Ward Dec 2021


a very fun night and excellent food + wine, but not a creation I’ll be keeping

Geraldine Ler Nov 2021


Great teacher and chill atmosphere/vibe. Had a lot of fun learning to make the pieces and chatting

Clare Bryce Sep 2021


Teacher was lovely, class was well run and food at the associated restaurant was fantastic.

Harmony Sanderson Sep 2021


This was a great class - my friend and I had a fun time. Would recommend.

Tracey Aldis Jul 2021


The teacher was lovely
Excellent value for money.
Something different to the usual paint and sip
We hd a really fun night.

Saseema Nugapitiya Jul 2021


The teacher was very helpful and demonstrated each stage of the process. The only feedback I'd say is it would be nice to get some more feedback on how to improve our pieces individually. But I understand that its a group class so that's hard to do

Meg Caldwell-Cook Jun 2021


The evening was exactly as I had hoped, the teacher was amazing.
Wesley was very patient and supportive every step.
Our end products were as described and very impressive considering we had no idea what we were doing.
Have experienced the paint and sip before and this was a great alternative, highly recommend
regards
Meg
