Dedication to Design

Paint

Ross is the sole proprietor of Scenic Studios Pty Ltd since the official retirement of Paul Kathner.

Ross has worked as a scenic artist for 40 years and his extensive knowledge and ability affords him the status of Master Painter and one of Australia's leading scenic artists. For example, Ross was involved in the design application and realisation for the front curtain for the Victorian Arts Centre State Theatre, and his expertise allowed his beautiful design to be translated onto the velvet drapes. Ross's scenic art experience has lead him into the television, theatre, film, advertising, and display industries over the years.

He is also a designer in his own right, having designed for musicals, operas and ballets, as well as shop interiors and television settings. Ross possesses an unlimited capacity for understanding and the realisation of any design concept and his reputation in the industry is a true testament to his ability.

He was recently awarded a Fellowship for an extensive Study Tour to Italy.

Testimonials

We wanted to write to thank you for the in kind hire you provided for our recent Theatre Works ABUNDANCE fundraiser event.


ABUNDANCE raised over $15,000 for independent theatre companies Little Ones Theatre, the Present Tense Ensemble and the Theatre Works Artist Appeal. The event was the most successful in its three-year history.


As you know, funding for the independent arts sector is scarce, especially in this current political climate. Contributions such as yours mean so much. The ABUNDANCE fundraiser simply wouldn’t have got there without your support.


On behalf of the entire Theatre Works team, we want to express our most sincere thanks for making the night such a success.
