Each week we are adding more artists – please support them by sharing this page and purchasing their work.
You can purchase any of these art pieces by contacting the artist directly. They will arrange the best delivery option with you.
Angie is inspired by the play of light and shadow, the movement of clouds, rusted iron, peeling paint – these fleeting moments reveal perfection in imperfection. Her wheel-thrown stoneware ceramics, made in her home studio on 20 acres of bush just outside Daylesford, provide a canvas upon which to express these glimpses.
Contact Angie to purchase any of her ceramics. She can arrange delivery (pack & post is extra).

Julie Patey is best known for her response to landscape in the area around Cairn Curran in Central Victoria. Julie uses memory to create tactile textural expressions of the land using collagraphs and mixed media.
At Beautiful Wasteland Kate hand crafts botanically-dyed silk and merino wool scarves and garments. Kate says: ‘I gather leaves, flowers and vegetable matter from wild spaces or my dye garden. These are arranged on raw textiles, bundled around salvaged metal and simmered. Unwrapping reveals a unique piece of wearable art.’
Contact Kate to purchase her Eco-printed scarves and clothing, download “Eco-printing on Paper” or to book into a 1-on-1 workshop.

After working as a printmaker and mixed media artist, I now create cold connection mixed metal jewellery pieces.
My latest work is blending various metals, opals, beach glass, and found objects and making medieval, bohemian style unique wearable statements. I like showcasing some opals which I’ve mined, cut and polished in casual funky settings.
Contact Cherryl to purchase any of her pieces. Postage costs will be added to the price.
I create functional, wheel-thrown porcelain ceramics, bringing handcrafted beauty to everyday life. Objects bring ritual and honouring to our lives. It’s our relationship to objects that interests me; they occupy space in our homes and cradle memories and stories. My studio is based in Newstead, 10 minutes from Castlemaine.

My work is primarily inspired by places in Australia where I’ve camped, both hinterland and coastal.
My joy as a painter lies in playing with colour, line and form until I spy a relationship emerging between these marks and the thoughts and feelings I’m experiencing. I love the mystery: often I have no idea what will evolve.

Hand screen prints on cotton or cotton/ linen, using a combination of hand cut and photographic stencils.
These prints are loosely based on recollections from my childhood in the 70s in my home town Quambatook: the Annual Rose and Dahlia Show, weekend sporting events and significant community celebrations. The magpies and the cockies were always there and I love seeing them in central Victoria, watching and warbling away, bringing beauty, colour and a touch of nostalgia to everyday. My mum loved gardening and home decoration, constantly redecorating our home: this influence in my work is ever present.
Libby works from her backyard studio in Bendigo. Contact Libby for more information or to purchase her work. Libby says that each piece is displayed with custom made hangers and these are included in the price. Postage is extra.

My artmaking process is guided and inspired by moments that stand out for me. Within this spontaneous and playful way of working I immerse myself in the flow of a piece which can take on any number of shapes, forms and meanings. I am always excited to see what emerges.
My work focuses on places – where I live at Strangways (Central Victoria), Central Australia, anywhere where land meets/met water. As Wendell Berry said: There are no unsacred places; there are only sacred places and desecrated places. I draw, make prints, artist books and mixed media pieces.
Contact Richard for more information or purchase his art works. All prints are one of a kind.

Colour, beauty and fun are my primary sources of inspiration. I explore these themes across a broad range of media including acrylic paint, resin, inks, teacups, cloth and paper.
In response to C-19 and wishing to spread some joy and distraction I started a YouTube channel. I would love you to join me: subscription is free!

Diane’s work looks at the iconic symbol of sheep on country. The importance of the ‘Golden Fleece’ on colonial economic development was profound but for many First Nation peoples their way of life was sacrificed for the sheep’s grazing land. Diane’s work reinterprets this form in a new sustainable, harmonious world.
