Happy Animal Art!

The Young Designers Market is a feel good place, with fun and funky happening everywhere you look. We’re so pleased that Maree Davidson has joined us from The Collective Markets, bringing her delightful art and eye catching stall with her!


We asked Maree where she draws her inspiration from (‘scuse the pun!), to which she replied:

“I have personally met a lot of the animals I have painted over the years. I interact with them, and get to know their personalities, which I then create into a painting - whether that be a fine art piece, or a quirky character I’ve been commissioned to paint. I also love painting animals in close-up poses, which can have a more contemporary look.”


You’ll love Maree’s original art as much as we do, so why not pop down to Young Designers Market this Sunday to meet the artist! Click “Read More” to find out more about Maree and see more great artwork.

Curly Jo Design at YDM

You Stay Glassy, Brisbane.

It’s sometimes hard to tell if its really winter here in Queensland, especially when you meet bright and bubbly designers who are so passionate about what they do, selling their wares on a beautiful Sunday in the sun! Take Jo for example, she’s been creating the most amazing jewellery with her own two hands for years now, and we’re so lucky to have her as a regular at the Young Designers Market and The Collective Markets too.


We wanted to know why Jo does what she does, and she told us. Now we’re in love with the person and not just her brilliant product!


“Hey Jo, what’s your style?” we asked… “Eclectic, peasant, bohemian with a touch of whimsy” she says. Find out more about Curly Jo Design here at YDM.
