Art: It’s Not Make Believe, It’s Believe and Make It

Practically everything around you first started as a thought; an idea that the creator (notice the small “c”) believed in and carried through to completion. All is art, and I’ve heard it said that art is a window to the soul?—?of both the artists and the collectors. We have selected a range of mediums and sensibilities that represent the unique styles and we hope, a glimpse into the artists’ realm of “believe?—?and then make it.”

”For me, being an artist is about taking the time to savour the subtleties of the land and life. Whether that is closing your eyes and feeling the wind whipping off a rocky peak or rolling a paintbrush between your fingers, it’s the quiet moments that have the largest impact.”
—?Patrick Markle
