Finding fellow artists and lovely folksy people

This saturday I visited the farmers market in Forres, Moray. I went hoping to find yummy food and to see if I could possibly have a stall there later this year. Alongside the stall selling yummy locally made chocolate (visit http://www.olivetreeofelgin.co.uk/ for more information) I found Carol Capaldi, a fellow folksy seller. She is based in Moray and makes unique jewellery with
polymer clay.

Visit her shop at www.folksy.com/shops/carolscrafts.

I then went to the Nairn Book and Arts festival, a yearly festival over a week that includes art exhibitions, readings, films, and workshops. I spent a few hours wandering around the art exihibitions and saw some fabulous work. There is the opportunity to enter competitions and more information can be found at http://www.nairnfestival.co.uk/

Currently on show at the harbour cafe in Nairn is work by Abigail Yardimci, she paints in a modern, vibrant style. Her work can be seen at http://www.abeeart.com/. Here is one of my favourites.
