Sandra’s Ceramics Studio is set amongst one of the few working farms still operating in the outskirts of Arcadia. The property produces an array of top quality foliage for the Australian Flower Industry. Sandra’s ceramic workspace inhabits a partitioned section of the flower shed which is surrounded by paddocks of luscious viburnum & magnolia trees & a multitude of delicious fruit & nut trees. Of particular interest are the banana, custard apple, pomegranate, chestnut & prickly pear trees. A brood of hens populates an enclosure behind the shed & you can often hear the resident rooster crow. The wide open space & the exceptional fresh air provide a wonderfully calm & peaceful environment in which creativity thrives.

Emma DonaldsonPhotographer
It is creation that inspires me. Its form, variation and intricacies. It is the very essence of beauty and I cannot help but stand in awe as I see a master craftsman behind the light show at sunrise and sunset, behind the crashing waves on the beach and behind the warmth of the golden autumn sun. This is why I photograph – I want to capture that moment in time, that moment that will never be the same again. Each moment is just as special as the last and maybe one day that moment will be framed on your wall, but at the very least I hope, that you will see the beauty of creation.

Lee Evans
Lee EvansPainter
A lifelong love of plants, animals, painting and storytelling were interwoven five years ago into Lee’s small business, Feather Flower Brush. Between raising heritage breeds of chickens and growing daphne plants, Lee takes up her brushes to capture the essence of small farm life in her oils and watercolours.
Lee derives constant inspiration for her paintings from the old heritage-listed farm she lives on in Glenorie and from all the beautiful plants and animals, both native and domestic, that surround her there.
