Operating on Tamborine Mountain in Queensland Australia since 2007, Mountain Dreams Studio showcases the work of Maki Horanai. Primarily a painter working on both canvas and wood, Maki also works in ceramics and mixed media (charcoal, pastels, and pen.) All of her work takes us into a her own fantastic world of dreams that exists both nowhere and everywhere, displaying a unique and imaginative combination of artistic sensibilities. Her work defies any single label, yet has its own immediately recognisable style, often touching or quirky, but always evocative.

Through our studio and through our homepage shop Maki’s work is available ito the public: original pieces; signed and numbered prints; and smaller prints, cards and books produced by the artist and her partner, Hillel Weintraub, on handmade paper. Together with Hillel’s poems and stories, these artworks make unforgettable and deeply meaningful gifts for yourself or someone you care about.
