KEEN artists will recognise a familiar face in Dalby this week.

Host of the television show Art Studio, Wayne Clements, is in town and has set up a display inside Dalby Shoppingworld.

The Mt Tambourine resident continues to gather an impressive following.

More and more fans are tuning in to his show, which started on air three years ago.

He chose to come to Dalby before heading interstate, much to the delight of his art followers.

Mr Clements will use the trip to raise money for CareFlight.

"We've been raising money for CareFlight for a lot of years," he said.

Mr Clements will paint all week and sell raffle tickets before an auction on Saturday.

The winner of the raffle will get to choose one of Mr Clement's paintings, with the remaining pieces being auctioned.

Mr Clements is calling the auction "affordable art".

"Paintings can sell for upwards of $10,000 on my website," he said.

"But the starting price for these paintings at the auction is around $150 to $200."

But it's not just his own art work Mr Clements is promoting.

The 25-year veteran said he always had people asking how they could get started in art.

"Most people think they have to have some sort of special talent," he said.

"They say 'I wish I could do that'.

"I tell them to just get started and practice."

Drawing inspiration from his surroundings Mr Clements said he loved the creativity that came with painting.

"The good thing is you don't have to copy exactly what is on the photo. Creating it yourself is the fun part," he said.
