Whilst art and artists can encompass a whole range of activities and professions, the Ausemade website will be talking about and showing the works of artists in the field of painting, sculpture, carving, and similar creative endeavours who we may have met or whose work we have enjoyed. We will have snapshots of creations from artisans that we have enjoyed from a variety of annual and one off events and exhibitions, and that images that show the craftmanship of individuals and group endeavours.
