Margaret River Studio Update

Adrift Studio

Art Inspired by a love of the Ocean

I am often between two shores, both the South West Coast of WA 
and the Far North of Queensland.
It felt right to name my new website the "Adrift Studio"

It has been a busy year. I was in Cairns for the wet season at the beginning of the year. Celebrating the arrival of our new grandson and spending time with family. The season certainly held up to it's name, it was wet wet wet. Inside spare time was spent creating a couple of artworks, one is my crab, the other was an artwork for this years Cossack Exhibition.

During late April early May The Margaret River Open Studio Event was the highlight..
Nothing like having a tidy up of the art studio and garden to present to the flurry of art visitors to the region. I received lots of lovely comments about my artwork. There were some guests who spent lots of time admiring our little cottage and garden as well as the art. 
I added to the marine theme of my artworks, with some outside elements of driftwood artwork and my husband made a fantastic port hole  door for his workshop, which looked great with a painting beside it. So a lot more effort into styling the whole place to create an interesting visit for all our guests.

Evans and Tate Art Studio

I have recently taken up an opportunity at the Evans and Tate Winery Art Studio.
The original cellar door building houses a working art studio. The space is currently shared by four artists. I am honored to be a part of this group of artists. The studio has a lovely look and feel, you have the added bonus of the Winery Cellar Door, named a five star winery in James Halliday's Wine Companion.
The bonus of art and wine has benefits, add a lovely setting in the Margaret River Region and you have a nice outing on a Sunday afternoon. 

I will sign off for today, and there is lots more to catch up on, talk again soon
Happy Sailing,
