Other artists include Jane Bennett, Sue Bessell, Libby Bloxham, Judy Bourke, Gillian Day, Julie Donnelly, Alannah Dreise, Angela Forrest, Paula Schiller Gowans, Nicole Grimm- Hewitt, Karen Hook, Tony Hull, Jennifer Jackson, Liz Jeneid, Alena Kennedy, Moira Kirkwood, Deborah Redwood, Melissa Richie, Lara Seresin, Sue Smalkowski, Arja Valimaki, Mary Wingrave, Diana Wood Conroy and T.S.
