ARTIST PROFILE: David Peacock

One of the most picturesque settings in the south of France proved to be memorable for artist David Peacock. “We were staying in France outside of Aix-en-Provence and we drove to Montagne Sainte-Victoire where Cézanne painted many, many times,” recalls Peacock. “It was a dramatic sight ““ it was wild and open and windy and stormy.”

ARTIST PROFILE: Katia Liberato Lemos

Ceramic artist Katia Liberato Lemos brings a touch of whimsy to her work.

Hold up one of Katia's bowls and you'll see a gardener sprinkling tiny red hearts from a watering can, on another she's hand-painted a girl at the beach with her blue dog and another has a bird perched on a woman's nest-like hair. Her multi-coloured creations: platters, bowls, mugs and vases, playfully pay tribute to wildlife like dragonflies, birds and bees.
