Anne originally trained as a fashion designer and later was craft editor for Woman’s Day. Since the year 2000 she has applied her expertise in the use of colour to create stunning mosaics in her home from very large panels that cover entire walls to small birdbaths and bowls.  To ensure she has the perfect materials for a particular design, Anne often makes her own 3 dimensional tiles which are hand glazed and fired in vibrant colours in shapes of petals, leaves, fruit, fish or whatever is needed to create her picture.


Topiary pear trees laden with ripe yellow fruit, vines dripping with plump green grapes, pencil pines in pretty pots, flowering bird of paradise plants, birds, frogs, fish and fountains are just some of the stars of Anne Martin’s amazing colourful garden – and they are all made of mosaic!

Blue Sky Theatre and Open Garden SA

are bringing another hilarious, fast paced comedy to gardens across South Australia

 No-one escapes the gossips in this new take on Sheridan’s famous fast-paced comedy.

In a society awash with gossip, Lady Sneerwell and every other tittle-tattle in London ruin the reputations of their rich friends simply for the fun of it. Among the targets are two brothers: Charles, a loveable rogue and Joseph a two-faced MP. While they compete to win Maria’s heart, they’re unaware their wealthy uncle is secretly testing them to see who deserves his inheritance.

 Let us take you back to summer 1955 for Pimms, picnics and plenty of intrigue in four glorious garden settings under the stars.
