STORY — Biography

A GENERATIONAL LOVE OF THE WATER
Founded in 2004 by Michael and Christine Gilmore, Jetboat Extreme was the first jet boat tour business established in Surfers Paradise and is still the number-one Gold Coast jet boating operator. Michael has always had a passion for boats, having owned a range of marine businesses over decades — as they say, saltwater runs in his veins. His hands-on approach sees him select all Jetboat Extreme drivers, who must have a top-class marine license, elite driving skills and a love for the ocean just as much as he does. The check-in crew is also an epic bunch, as you’ll see in our Gold Coast jet boating Google reviews posted by thousands of satisfied thrill-seekers.

Regarding the Jetboat Extreme fleet, Michael personally oversaw the design and construction of all our boats, being purpose-built for local Broadwater conditions. He ensured all the critical performance, comfort, viewing, and safety features were integrated from scratch, with no afterthoughts, just the best Gold Coast jet boats from the get-go.

Michael and Christine’s son, Kegan, is now the Jetboat Extreme general manager and continues the family legacy of providing first-class holiday fun for hyped visitors year-round. We always win awards from leading review sites and official tourism bodies because we’re passionate about entertaining our passengers with the ultimate Gold Coast jet boating experience.

Welcome aboard, Jetboat Extreme!

CANVASSING GOOD VIBES

HOME — Hero Paragraph

Welcome to The Sorrento Studio. An artistic playground for Mornington Peninsula-based contemporary artist Jackie Green. With a background in freehand signwriting and custom-made signage, Jackie brings her eclectic fusion of typography and iconography into the free-flowing world of abstract expressionism.

She creates via two modus operandi — Urban Rhythm and Coastal Contemplation. Her urban-inspired works layer pastels, neon, lettering and symbols in vibrant creations depicting the intoxicating energy of a modern urban buzz. On the flip side, her Coastal Contemplation direction draws inspiration from the raw beauty of nature captured in muted, natural tones and organic elements carefully considered to evoke a sense of seaside serenity.

Whichever way you see it, it’s clear that every work is lovingly created to canvas good vibes only.

HOME — Collections

URBAN RHYTHM COLLECTION

In the realm of Urban Rhythm, Jackie draws inspiration from time spent in Melbourne and other culture-rich cities she’s visited worldwide. The flicker of neon signs, colours of fashion and interactions of everyday people laid out on canvas to the tune of a thriving cityscape. This is where the modern metropolis of concrete dreams blends grit and glam in works embodying what it means to live an inspired urban life — pastels dynamically personified to the 24/7 pulse of the pavement.

COASTAL CONTEMPLATION COLLECTION

Amid Coastal Contemplation, Jackie turns to her Sorrento backyard and finds a natural muse in Mother Nature. Whispers of the sea, tides of tranquillity and the stillness of sands are laid bare in works imagined to bring a state of effortless, joyous calm. This is serenity rendered in a symphony of organic coastal treasures found and blended in a mortar and pestle, then applied with natural tones, providing visual textures akin to those discovered wandering the ephemeral shores of the meandering coastline.

APPROACH — Hero Paragraph

ABSTRACT ALCHEMY

The artistic journey of Jackie Green is like embarking on an intimate dialogue with her emotions, experiences and the diverse worlds that have shaped her. Drawing inspiration from dynamic urban surroundings or the tranquil ecosystem of her natural neighbourhood, she begins each work by delving into the depths of her feelings.

Armed with canvases, brushes, a palette of paints and unruly rattle cans, Jackie steps into her creative space, ever-ready to allow the art to unfold. With each bold stroke, nozzle spray and spontaneous mark on the canvas, layers of paint and mixed media are steadily built, guided not by a rigid plan but by the intuitive emotions that drive her creative hand. The canvas becomes a living tapestry, a testament to the conversation between Jackie’s inner world and the colours that ebb and flow on its surface.

Just as she crafts custom signs designed to capture attention, her Urban Rhythm works feature energetic pastel and fluorescent colours, symbols and text — all woven together under a positively charged theme of “hope”. Hence, the “X” kisses, love hearts and positive affirmations featured on many. As Jackie turns her attention to calming Coastal Contemplation works, she infuses her canvas with muted tones that capture the tranquil beauty of familiar beach vistas. Inspired by a central theme of “serenity”, she crushes locally found shells, sand and flora in a mortar and pestle, then adds paint to alchemise a unique medium that creates a visual sanctuary through organic texture.

As she paints, she becomes immersed in a dance of shapes, symbols, words and textures that emerge with every application. It’s a balance between intuition and reflection, a process in which she listens as much as she expresses. Stepping back, she takes in the evolving composition, occasionally diving back in, compelled to enhance, refine, or even release elements that no longer resonate. When completed, it’s ready to be shared with the world, creating connections where emotions are universal — a heart-warming reflection of the human soul.

ABOUT — Hero Paragraph

MOMENTOS IN MOTION

The need for speed has been a passion pursued by men and women ever since an engine was shoehorned into a chassis with some wheels and a drive train propelling you into total tarmac exhilaration. As technology advanced, so too did the speed access, with highly tuned machines now available to racers and private enthusiasts with a penchant for putting the pedal to the metal or twisting the throttle.

Speed Frames celebrates the legendary legacy of an auto-inspired lifestyle and the people who live for the roar of the engine and the thrill of unbridled acceleration. We’re driven to bring the essence of this mechanical freedom and beauty into your desired space through automotive art that speaks to a petrol-pulsing soul.

That’s why we offer you the ability to reimagine your pride and joy in a contemporary, monochromatic print custom-designed by our in-house artist. After all, when the rubber hits the road, why not capture it in all its gear-shifting glory?
