We are a home based arts business based in beautiful northern Tasmania, just outside the small but very creative town of Deloraine. Jacque is an artist who specialises in sculpting, especially garden art figures. When not doing clay work, Jacque paints and quilts. John sells books and CDs, especially music by Tasmanian musicians, who, despite the fact that we have a recording studio in town, are too modest to make CDs. We can be found at the Deloraine market on the first Saturday of each month, starting in September. We are exploring other appropriate markets and venues. In the fullness of time we will be setting up workshops etc. so keep an eye on our blogspot for these and other ventures. Thank you for taking the time to look at this, and do contact us should you see anything you like, or if you should want any art materials.

First Post

Extended Family
Acrylic on canvas 60 x 60cm
 Well, here we go, continuing our voyage of discovery, this time on to the possibilities of cyberspace. We thought we'd start with a couple of photos of Jacque's latest art works.

The first is a rather cute acrylic painting of "babushka dolls" . They are from 3 different collections, including one loaned by a good friend. They certainly look very cheery, and brighten up a slightly gloomy corner of our studio. The price doesn't include delivery.

LS Lowry's Anne
Buff Raku 36cm tall
 The second photo is a clay sculpture based upon a portrait painted by L.S. Lowry in 1957 . The subject, Anne, is a bit of a mystery lady. For years people have been trying to work out who she is, or was. The consensus of opinion though, is that she was an imaginary friend. Interestingly, X-rays of a lot of his paintings have revealed more portraits of Anne, underneath his more typical industrial "matchstick men" works. The price doesn't include delivery. How much that will be varies depending upon where it is going, but for suburban Sydney or Melbourne, it would be about $35. Country mainland works out at around $45.

  1. Jacque - A great idea to have a blog and to be able to show images of your work and to describe them them. Look forward to more info and images.
