I wanted to feature two of my local artist, the first is Peter and Ros from Wongee Place. Peter is the master designer who works mainly with copper and brass and takes tonnes of inspiration from the natural world around him. I bought this cuff bracelet from him a couple of months back...I love the gum leaves!
wongeeplace.blogspot.com or at the Port Macquarie Artist Market on the first Sunday of every month!
The other fabulous artist that I would love to yap on about is Kerryanne English from Woodberry Designs She has just moved up from Melbourne and misses the shopping (nothing can compare to Melbourne shopping!) but from looking at her lovely blog it looks like she is enjoying decorating her home and checking out the local beaches. Kerryanne was exhibiting her gorgeous cupcakes at the market this weekend (so very delightful that you want to eat them....but you must not...because they aren't real food!) but next month she will have her paintings for all to drool over - can't wait to see them!
To finish off, here are a couple of images from yesterdays artist market. I asked my husband to take a few photos of the general loveliness, and even though he doesn't like this kind of vague instruction (not as specific as "Take a picture of the left hand side of the building facing north") he still did a good job. Enjoy!
