THERE is no better feeling in the world than seeing someone buy your art, according to Annette Appleby.

The ABA Productions founder only started exhibiting her art this year, but the Canning Vale resident has fallen in love with the buzz.

“There is absolutely nothing like the thrill of someone buying your stuff and getting excited about something you’ve made,” she said.

“Now I find people are coming back to collect my work, which is amazing, the thrill of that is just unsurpassable.

“It was a lump of clay and now it’s something someone values.”

A long-time artist, Appleby started her art business many years ago, but has only recently seen it take off.

She will be exhibiting her range of ceramics and prints at the Made on the Left Xmas Market on November 17-18 at Princess May Park in Fremantle.

Appleby credited the markets with her recent success.

“The Made on the Left Market is the first market I had massive success at and it brought my name out into the community,” she said.

“All the markets I’d been trying to get into started approaching me after Made on the Left, it’s a terrific market for artists to get out there and promote their work.”
