Studio Atelier


Only a short drive from Byron Bay, our studio atelier is located at Karinya, one of the most exceptional privately owned properties in the area. Exquisitely secluded on 25 acres of subtropical rainforest setting, this luxury haven in a coveted hillside enclave has been masterfully tailored for a truly unique experience . With views across the valley of the mystical old  growth rainforest of Wilsons Creek, which represents more than 70% of the rainforest in the Byron Shire, coupled with a spectacular ocean vista, Karinya is a prestigious yet intimate escape that enchants and indulges the mind, body and senses. Karinya is the perfect location to connect with creativity, artistic exploration and nature.​​

Studio Atelier

Our studio is a unique purpose built pace that boasts a custom designed timber, light filled interior with handcrafted hardwood bench tops and extensive facilities, looking out onto stunning tropical rainforest gardens and breathtaking coastline views. The studio is equipped with a wet and dry darkroom, open work spaces and a comprehensive art and photographic library. The stunning grounds and architecturally designed gardens provide a natural creative space to explore, play and learn in. We believe creative experience should be inspired and enhanced by beautiful and natural surrounds that delight the senses and allow the artist to relax and fully absorb themselves in the creative process.


Private viewings and atelier visits for buyers and collectors are available on request.
