Her detailed watercolour paintings of Australian birds will amaze visitors to the exhibition.

Living in Port Stephens provides Nada with an abundance of inspiration, resulting in captivating scenes of beach days and tranquil waterways, depicted in bold acrylics and delicate watercolours.

Experienced potter Caryl Bryars describes making three dimensional art as an “important part” of her life, with hand-building in clay being her chosen medium.

“The natural world with its colours, textures and form is truly inspirational,” Caryl said.

“Seeing and feeling the organic, natural tools collected and used, coming to life during the creation of the clay pieces for this exhibition was simultaneously stimulating and relaxing.

“The end results are an expression of my love for the natural world and is good for my soul”.

The official opening will be on Sunday 2 June at 3pm.

The exhibition will continue throughout the month of June, seven days a week from 10am to 4pm at Artisan Collective Port Stephens, on the waterfront of D’Albora Marina, Nelson Bay.
