Set in bushland acreage near Anglesea on the beautiful Great Ocean Road, Moongate Studios is the owner-built, mud-brick home, gallery/studios and gardens of Geo and Jan Francis, internationally acclaimed artists.
A personal and working relationship of over 40 years has crafted Jan and Geo into an intuitive, vibrant team capable of successfully following public and corporate art projects through all stages from concept to installation, whilst individually developing their own well recognised and much awarded creative voices.
George sculpts in all mediums including stone, wood, steel and bronze. Jan paints oils on canvas but also loves the simplicity of the black and white in lino-cuts, etchings and ink sketches. Their art expression manifests through the love of life, observation and experience. They are the founding and current heads of Geelong Sculptors Inc and have forged and nurtured QUALITALY, a cultural corridor between Geelong Australia and Piedmont Italy for over a decade.
Studio exhibitions are ever changing as new work emerges. Commissions welcome, workshops and consultation available.
