After adding up all the artworks I’ve sold over the years I’ve just realised I’ve sold a total of sixty paintings! Thank you to my art fans who have been keen to snap up my originals!
Hunter Arts Network Art Bazaar is back at Lambton Park for the second time this year on Sunday 17 November 2019 from 9am – 3pm for their annual Christmas market.
To locate my stall where I’ll be selling my original paintings look for the yellow canopy.
This year visitors can enter the draw for the chance to win amazing prizes created by participating stallholders including myself! To enter visit the official HAN market tent on the day.
The highlight of the event will be the 60 HAN members whose stalls will be surrounded by the beautiful parklands & scenery at Lambton Park. Every stallholder is a local from the Hunter – purchase Christmas gifts direct from the creative maker’s hands. Art Bazaar has been running every year since 2002 with high quality, original, creative and unique handmade items.
HAN is a non-profit incorporated membership of artisans from the Hunter. HAN is run by a dedicated committee of volunteers who have worked hard to celebrate all modalities of visual arts

Massive thank you to everyone who stopped by at today’s Art Bazaar! I sold one of my original paintings to a happy customer. Lambton Park was once again a great location. We enjoyed the large crowds and enjoyed a day in the warm sunshine. It was an enjoyable & entertaining day and all round good atmosphere. Special thanks to the contribution by the Hunter Arts Network committee and stallholders. It’s great to know that the local quality creativity on offer is greatly appreciated and that all sales are going back into our local community to help artists continue their wonderful work.

Newcastle visual artist Margo Humphries launches Turn Clothing Co. clothing brand
LIKE many kids, Margo Humphries loved painting and did as much as she could within her means.
“I didn’t get a lot of pocket money but I won a lot of kids’ drawing competitions,” she says.
“I remember keeping an exercise book of all the prizes that I had won, and it was in the hundreds.”
Now Humphries, an experienced visual artist with multiple group and solo exhibitions under her belt and a member of the Hunter Arts Network, is trading her acrylic paints and ink for graphic design.
She’s launched Turn Clothing Co, a made-to-order online clothing label that has released a range of T-shirts and apparel.
“I am revealing another side that has been itching to come out for a few years. Both disciplines inspire each other – design learns from art and art learns from the design,” she says.
“I’m drawn to designs that aren’t heavy, I can relate to fun and bright Newy life. This new project amplifies summer threads and beach apparel.”
Humphries, who moved to the Hunter from Taree in 2003 and has been painting professionally since 2008, says the move to start the label came upon demand.
“A lot of people commented that they liked the patterns in my work and that they would look good on material so although I haven’t yet gone down that path, I’ve started,” she says.
Local scenes inspire Humphries, from Lansdown escarpment in her home town of Taree to coastal water scenes in the Hunter. A fan of artists including Salvador Dali and Geoffrey Smart, Humphries is happiest when she leaves her day job and gets back to the paints.
Her decision to use German-headquartered T-shirt manufacturing company Spreadshirt for her production is based on her desire to lower overheads while ramping up her designs.
She designs prints on a computer then uploads it to the Spreadshirt site for printing and manufacturing before they can be ordered, either via Spreadshirt or her own site.
“Eventually I would love to be able to have my stock,” she adds, “and send it out directly and do it all myself.”
She enjoys the process of designing a print and the fact she can step away and return to it after a few days and change it completely or revise it in her own time.
Turn Clothing Co sponsors 12-year-old Sydneysiders Archie Perkin and Luka Latinovic who recently had their first taste of surfing competitions with Maroubra Surfers Association.
“They contacted me and though they are not from the Hunter I thought it would be good to support them and get my designs out there,” she said.
