Welcome to The Tassie Farm – inspired by the everyday events on Kerry and Nick’s 23 acre farm in Middleton on the glamorous-sounding D’Entrecasteaux Channel. This blog is a place for anyone who’s interested in food, art, design, animals and country life in Tassie’s south. Here’s a short blurb on the three founders:
Kerry Hodge is an illustrator, font collector, keen cook and freelance creative director / art director. She also dibbles and dabbles in photography and has an eye for everything crafty.
Jane Skarratt is a children’s book author, children’s TV writer and freelance creative director / copywriter. She’s gone back to uni to study linguistics and hopes to enrol in a Master of Speech Pathology next year.
Jane and Kerry have been working as a creative team in Melbourne ad agencies since 2007. http://www.skarrattandhodge.com
