Tess Parker is an actor, singer, teacher and producer based in Geelong. Christine Croyden is a playwright working from Barwon Heads. Wendy Robinson, also Geelong-based, works as a voiceover artist. Cherie Roessler, from the Bellarine Peninsula, is a visual artist. Lucy* works as an actor and producer in the Geelong region. What these women have in common is the desire to keep their practices going despite geographical obstacles.
