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.

Home & Garden


Our garden is essentially of three distinct zones. The first (1) is the house flower beds and the productive part of the garden. The second (2) is the short grass exotic plantings and the third (3) a longer grass area with mainly native plantings. This last third is the most favoured by native wildlife as they can hide in the long grass and use the short grass paths to move around the garden, and to graze. Regular wildlife visitors are wallabies, pademelons (small Tasmanian wallabies), echidnas (spiny anteaters) possume (ringtail, brushtail and a resident eastern pigmy possum), blue tongue lizards, skinks and an occasional tiger snake! Esmerelda the goat stopped me from treading on one recently by absolutely refusing to go where I was taking her. There are also, of course, lots of rabbits at times though their numbers come and go with snake season, and if we have stray cats visiting. We get quite frequent birds of prey too, which will contribute to the control of the rabbit population.


I will finish this page properly soon but for the moment will leave you with some photos to look at.
