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.


These are some of Jacque's paintings from the last few years. They are in no particular order.

Aislingean. Acrylic & pumice stone mortar.
The title is from the Gaelic word meaning "dreaming" in its feminine form. The Celtic cross has been built up with pumice stone mortar, carved and then painted.

Amy. Mixed media & acrylic. Sold.

Contemplation. Acrylic on textured canvas. Sold.

Fabric of the Community. Acrylic on canvas.
Jacque painted this for an art award in Latrobe, just outside Devonport. The theme was "A Sense of Community" and as Jacque had enjoyed doing some quilting with a group in Latrobe, this seemed to be an appropriate painting to enter.

Extended Family. Acrylic on canvas.

This is the first in a series which Jacque is calling "My Favourite Things". We're not sure what the next in line will be, probably cats, rabbits or snowdomes!

Flock of Irises. Acrylic on canvas. Sold

This is one of Jacque's more abstract paintings. When I left for work one morning in New Zealand, this was the start of a landscape. By the time I got home, this was what it had turned out to be!

Doves Drinking. Acrylic on canvas. Sold.
Inspired by a well know Italian mosaic.

Autumn Glory. Acrylic on textured canvas.

Israfel. Acrylic on canvas.
Israfel is an angel particularly associated with music.
Icon. Acrylic on canvas. Sold

Delphiniums. Acrylic on canvas. Sold

Well, that's enough of a selection of Jacque's paintings. As Jacque paints more we'll put them on the home page in the first instance, and then after a while, move it to this page, as a portfolio. If you have any enquiries regarding the paintings, please get in touch bohemianartsdeloraine@gmail.com
