Maple on Main

Displayed art for sale

The East Coast of Tasmania is home to some of the most amazingly talented artists one could hope to find.  Tasmania in general has a deep pool of artistic people keen to create, display and sell their work.  On a small scale, many artists struggle to find appropriate ways to display and sell their work. 
Maple on Main decided that it was in everyone’s interest that we adorn our walls with the work of local artists which could then be purchased. 
Maple on Main do not add commission to any of the work and the price paid all goes directly to the artist.  This is another way we help this wonderful community who supports us and our reward is an every changing display of beautiful artwork.

Marc Lawrence

Located in Beaumaris, on Tasmania’s beautiful East Coast, Marc Lawrence is a talented artist with a passion for various art forms.  As well as his original pencil drawings of ‘botanicals’ (and graphite drawings of sea shells) on display in the café, Marc is also an avid photographer with a passion for the living world and the wonders that nature provides for the artists eye.  His stunningly detailed and colourful art work is unique and original and these masterful drawings are genuine ‘one off’ pieces of art that are a pleasure to have on display and available for purchase.
