Initially, Gillie and Marc painted and designed, but have now become very interested in sculpture creating commissioned works for venues such as: Australia Zoo; Sydney Children's Hospital; Australian Red Cross Blood Service; Hilton Hotel Singapore; McDonald's Corporate Headquarters in Singapore; and the Ying Ren Four Seasons Hotel in Beijing.
The artists produce sculptures in a variety of mediums including bronze, brass, steel, wood, fibreglass and polyresin. Awards and accolades are numerous for the Schattners. In 2006 they were Archibald Prize finalists. The painting, He'll never be famous but he doesn't give a damn, he's a musician, earned them first prize at the 2009 Chianciano Biennale in Tuscany, Italy.
With over 20 years of collaboration, Gillie and Marc's works have received acclaim worldwide and are held in collections both nationally and internationally.
