Andy Causon Fine Art and Margaret Causon are both artists in their own right and also make up Andy & Margaret Creative.
While Andy is a professional portrait artist, for the last four years he's also been creating one of a kind lamps - he calls them retro industrial.
Margaret produces beautiful handbags from recycled leather, be it from clothing or even furniture.
"I love the process of transforming a piece of pre-loved leather into something like a beautiful and useful bag and see it continue to be a part of someone’s life in its new form."
Meet them both at this year's Fair and see their beautiful work.
I am a professional portrait artist and my work has been sold through Gallery Salamanca in Hobart. My work including my lamps can be found at andycausonfineart.com with links to gallery. I have been making lamps for approximately four years and this has complemented my other work. All lamps are original pieces and can be described as retro-industrial.
My interest in leatherwork began in my school days. As a young mother, I made leather shoes for my sons, and dabbled in other accessories as well. More recently, I have put my creative energy into recycling the leather from unwanted leather garments, furniture even. I love the process of transforming a piece of pre-loved leather into something like a beautiful and useful bag and see it continue to be a part of someone’s life in its new form.
