Roberta has been a successful glass artist for the past 20 years. Making beautiful, rich, elegant and inspiring pieces is what drives her. Roberta is passionate about the difficult art of glassblowing she is also now teaching workshops to beginners at the Gordon Studio Glassblowers at Red Hill South. In the past 5 years Roberta has also developed a passion for painting and now translates her wonderful artworks into stunning glass, art, interpretations of her paintings.
For 13 years Roberta ran Beast Creations Art Glass Gallery at Flinders. Her first gallery opened, coincidentally at the same time, beside Flinders Fine Art Gallery run independently by Rebecca Barbour. The two galleries opened simultaneously, the girls were strangers to each other and it could have been a disaster!
However, with their combined passion for promoting the arts, their enthusiastic and buoyant personalities, a love of handmade Australian art, paintings and Roberta’s hand blown glass, jewellery and ceramics, they formed a great friendship and working relationship. In 2005 in a combined space they opened their second galleries in Sorrento, opposite the beach on Nepean Highway Sorrento. Beast Creations Art Glass Gallery and Sorrento Fine Art Gallery.
In early 2015, Rebecca Davy with husband and renowned artist Craig Davy by her side purchased Noels Gallery at Red Hill. Noels has a long history on the Mornington Peninsula as a destination for people to enjoy great art, food, wine and local produce. They have once again teamed up with Roberta, and Noels Gallery Café is once again a wonderful destination. A ‘must see’ for anyone wanting to enjoy a sensory treat.
