From the fields of charity, fashion and art, these three trailblazers are vying for the 2014 InStyle and Audi Style Scholarship, a $10,000 grant to help further their dreams.
Online Entrepreneur, 33
In her early twenties, this Gold Coast-native rubbed shoulders with London’s creative elite while working for noted art dealer James Birch. Then she came to a realisation: “I could never afford to be in his realm.” so she set about making art more accessible and “changing the way people feel about it”. after completing an art- history degree in the UK, Colliver returned to Sydney and in 2010 founded art Pharmacy, an online gallery that sells original works by 55 local emerging talents, from prices as low as $50. “It’s about buying a piece that’s going to support an artist, rather than sending the money overseas for a reproduced print.” Winning the grant would allow Colliver to expand her Sydney pop-up exhibitions interstate. Ultimately, says the mother of two, “I want to take this worldwide.”
Stroke of genius “so many creative people just don’t have a place to exhibit their art...We’re a springboard for them to grow [from].”
