Maki @ Mountain Dreams Gallery
Now operating for its 10th year on Tamborine Mountain, our gallery is a show-case for the art of Maki Horanai, a celebrated artist who has her work in homes all over the world. Maki is a painter, who studied art in her birth country Japan, and has combined her roots with European art in a unique and immediately recognizable style, that invites and transports the viewer into her special world.
Maki also works in ceramics, creating dishes, cups and quirky houses and birds, sometimes combining them with her paintings. She and her partner Hillel, who writes poems inspired by her paintings, also create books, cards, and prints of Maki’s paintings and Hillel’s poems on handmade paper.
All of these are available at their home gallery, which has handicap access, toilet facilities and convenient parking for cars and small buses. Maki and Hillel live upstairs and can open the gallery for you anytime!
Just give them a call.
“Maki’s art takes me to another world.” “Such magical dreams – like beauty transporting us to a faraway place. A creative genius.” “Sublime.” “Incredibly inspirational. Connects us with outer dimensions. Spiritual art … Grace in every brush stroke.” “My heart dropped in amazement.” “Just magical. Her work makes me feel like a child.” “I felt instant love upon seeing her work. Her myth-world speaks with an important depth of humanity.” “Every day I look at our painting and find myself lost in the depth of its beauty and hidden tales.” “I love your painting, not only the image that seems to transverse time and borders, not only the richness of the colours and the beautiful way of painting that is uniquely yours, but for the depth of storylines that can be followed into the painting the intrigue and the gentle quality of your strong work.”
