A painter with a love nature, Deb Pettigrew has lived in Samford for over 25 years, with much of her creative inspiration derived from the local bushlands and mountain ranges she calls home.
Over the years, Deb has held many solo and group exhibitions, along with being commissioned by corporate and charity organisations. Deb favours oils, acrylics, graphite and inks as her mediums of choice and shares her skills and knowledge at the Good Egg Gallery workshop space.

Good Egg Gallery opened on July 18th 2020, aptly named for being located on an old Samford egg farm that Deb bought about 20 years ago.
The house, which is home to the gallery, is over 100 years old and was built in Dayboro during the early 1900s for Robert Vellnagel by his brother-in-law. Over its lifetime the house has been a family home, corner shop, guest house and finally a doctor’s surgery, prior to being relocated to its current location.
Good Egg Gallery is located on the left side, 345 Mt. Glorious Road to be exact, as you drive from Samford Village towards Mt Glorious. Sadly, there is no regular public transport, however the Moreton Bay Region has several transfer service providers.
