About the Speakers

Councillor Kylie Bourne

Kylie Bourne is an artist that is driven by her love of colour, nature, environment, family, friends and gardening. The majority of her work to date has been created using hand-cut coloured glass, tiles and mirror, however she also explores ideas through sculpture. She enjoys working with glass predominately and creates artworks that reflect her personality.

With the Councillor role of spokesperson for Tourism, Events and Regional Promotion across the Western Downs; Kylie understands firsthand the importance Arts and Culture plays in promoting, supporting, and enhancing our region. Kylie also enjoys sharing her passion for art and mosaics through workshops and installation works throughout regional communities.

Helen Dennis

Chinchilla artist Helen Dennis provides an aesthetic dimension to daily observations, to convey thoughtful and unique provocations about regional Queensland. Working primarily in acrylics on canvas and more recently mixed media, Dennis’ artwork explores often subversive themes. Working with a belief that an artist should be prepared to explore creatively, she uses bold, colourful palettes to portray the changing Chinchilla community and environment.

Heavily involved in the Chinchilla arts community through her ongoing volunteer role as director and tutor at the Lapunyah Art Gallery, Helen regularly exhibits her art both locally and interstate. Recently her artwork Fairy Tree was selected for the Outback Way Outdoor Gallery along the Plenty Highway, Eastern MacDonnell Ranges NT and her artwork Branch Creek Chinchilla in the 2020 Flying Art Alliance Touring Exhibition Decadence.
