About the artist

Tish Linehan is a local Brisbane artist who works in sculpture, ink drawing and painting. She completed a Bachelor of Visual Art at the Australian National University in Canberra and explores the human endeavour, knowledge and discovery, alongside the organic nature of art. Her work primarily focuses on the human form and the natural environment. 

About the sitter

Katie Noonan, a five times ARIA winning vocalist, pianist and composer, works across genres and is motivated by the weaving of connections between people and communities. Noonan is a fiercely proud local artist who grew up in Brisbane’s inner north-west and completed her BMus at the Queensland Conservatorium. She has contributed substantially to Brisbane’s Arts and Cultural scene both through her career as a performer and her recent positions as Music Director of the Opening and Closing Ceremonies of the 2018 Commonwealth Games and Artistic Director of the Queensland Music Festival 2016-2019. Spin shows Katie’s classical training through a stylistic reference to the Renaissance, while bright geometric Kandinsky-inspired shapes reflect the powerful purity of her voice.
