Welcome to Love Nest Studio Gallery!
Fibre artist and photographer, Tara Wilkinson and her husband, encaustic sculptural painter Andrew Csafordi, share their art and passion for natural elements with art collectors at their galleries on their beautiful country farm in the heart of Prince Edward County, open 10-6 daily, April thru October.
Combining nurture and nature, Tara lovingly handcrafts unique, one-of-a-kind sculptural art nests with fibres, twigs and other found materials. Each nest features a delicious array of colours and textures, and is unique in character and spirit. Her art can be purchased at her art gallery or through various retail locations.
Tara’s nests have been a featured product of the prestigious Spring One of a Kind Show in Toronto. Purchased for gifts and collected by art lovers alike, they've been shipped all over the world. Tara's nest sculptures have been purchased for gifts and home decor and shipped the world over. A universal and iconic symbol of home, fertility, family, love … nests are a place of new beginnings and a portal through which each of our life stories begin.
An award-winning photographer, Tara takes the time to capture the details hidden from most. Bringing them into focus with a fresh perspective allows the viewer to enjoy the most ordinary of moments. Her images take the viewer on a journey of the heart and soul. Her framed prints and greeting cards can be purchased at her gallery and select art galleries in Ontario.
Tara & Andrew invite everyone to join them in celebrating their 10th Anniversary of living and creating in beautiful Prince Edward County. Tour their art galleries in the heart of Prince Edward County and see their latest works of art in fibre, photography and encaustic sculptural painting. Watch a demo of the ancient technique of painting with melted beeswax! Take home a unique work of art.
