  • We have over twenty years history in renting studio space to artists in our current space in Rockdale and our previous space in Turtle Lane in Erskineville.

    Artists who have rented with us include Peter Atkins, Aida Tomescu, Nicolle Ellis, Alexi Keywan, Melissah Chalker and Phaptawan Suwannakudt.

  • “I worked at Cameron Street over a period of 2 years leasing a space from Yvonne Boag and Bob Jansen. Bob and Yvonne are well regarded in the arts community and Yvonne has a long established and respected career as an artist both nationally and internationally. 

    In my time at Cameron Street I worked across a variety of mediums such as drawing, painting and intaglio printmaking. The space is well lit, including good natural light and has white canite or plasterboard walls making it easy to hang or photograph works against. 

    The studio has communal facilities which include a fully operational kitchen and a shared toilet. There is an external sink for washing out brushes and cleaning other materials situated on the edge of a beautiful garden perfect for having a lunch break in.

    It is located approximately a 5 minute walk to Rockdale train station and the main street where there are cafes and supermarkets.

    As owners of the studio space Bob and Yvonne are professional, warm, friendly, accomodating and easy to communicate with. 

    My time at Cameron street can be described as nothing but positive. Whilst I was working alongside other artists which was both inspiring and encouraging, I was also able to maintain the space required to produce my own work without interruption.”

  • “I enjoyed my time over a year in 2015-6 at your studio in Rockdale. Here are the highlight which I enjoyed

    • High ceiling and walls and full light with facility and plus a back garden view.

    • Short walk to Café and train station. This is also convenient when you have visit from curators or Gallery.

    • Hardware shops Bunning and materials shop (Spotlight) are within walking distance.

    • Beach and park (nearby) is the bonus to relax when needed.”

  • “I lived and worked at Cameron street Rockdale over 2014, leasing from Yvonne Boag and Bob Jansen. It is a beautiful building lit with superb natural light with an industrial feel. It is also conveniently located, just a five-minute walk to the train station, buses, and cafes. There is always street parking directly in front of the building. 

    Whilst leasing at Cameron Street I had ample space to create work of any size or medium, exploring printmaking, painting, sculpture and drawing, making creativity stress free and limitless. The studio space has high ceilings, including communal kitchen and bathroom facilities. 

    The atmosphere was always relaxed, fun and friendly. I was surrounded by productively hard working artist, both emerging and and established- which created a positive environment and sense of community.  

    The Landlords Yvonne Boag and Bob Jansen are well regarded active members of the Sydney art scene. They are great to lease from, approachable, kind and friendly. 

    My time at Cameron Street was both fun and positive- it was a pleasure to be there, an overall positive experience. I would highly recommend this excellent studio space! ”
