About the teacher
Bev Isaac is a multidisciplinary artist living and working in Stawell, western Victoria.

Bev started her career in the early 1980’s as a model for RMIT fashion and fine art students, and went on to study for her Bachelor in Fine Art Sculpture at Prahran in Melbourne. She subsequently undertook teacher training and graduated with a Bachelor in Education from University of Melbourne.

Bev’s first life drawing class as a teacher was at Gas Works in South Melbourne in 1987.

In 2008 Bev and her partner Peter Voice relocated to Deep Lead near Stawell, and have become fixtures of the region’s creative community. Through their partnership Chalk Circle, they produce pavement art for festivals in Australia and overseas, as well as commercial art projects, teaching in schools and leading workshops for pavement art practice. Chalk Circle Gallery relocated in early 2024, with its new location on Main Street, Stawell, due to open at Easter.

About the model

Nella is an intersectional feminist creative based in western Victoria. Driven by a playful curiosity to dabble in a variety of mediums, she uses art as a form of storytelling and journaling to explore what it means to belong.

Nella recently stepped into the role of muse driven by a desire to support regular life drawing classes in regional communities. Being a life drawing model has been an empowering, inspiring and enjoyable experience and she often learns from the teacher and students during each session to improve her own drawing skills.
