The Flower Lady is here!

by Janine Combes | October 23, 2017

My new exhibition The Flower Lady-ten decades opened on Saturday at Art Farm Birch's Bay, south of Hobart. The official opening was by Her Excellency The Governor of Tasmania Professor Kate Warner. Her Excellency also presented letters from her Majesty the Queen, Prime Minister, Governor General and Premier to The Flower Lady, my mum. 

On Sunday many friends, supporters of Art Farm and 'flower' friends of Nettie's visited the exhibition. 

Lets keep the momentum going next weekend! Here are some pictures to inspire. Please come and see the show if you haven't yet seen it.

The Flower Lady exhibition is coming!

by Janine Combes | October 05, 2017

An exhibition to celebrate the 100th birthday of Nettie Combes (who also happens to be my mum) is coming up soon. I have been working hard to create a whole show of jewellery pieces about Nettie's life- historical, descriptive and flowers, flowers flowers.......Nettie has been growing and selling flowers for as long as anyone can remember, she is the flower lady of the Huon Valley and has many loyal customers.

I will be sharing some highlights over the coming weeks. It is on for 3 weekends: 22 October to 5 November at Art Farm, Birches Bay in southern Tasmania from 10 am to 4pm.  Come on down and see the show.
