Mischa Brooks-Thoma– Photographer & Artist
Growing up in Vancouver and on the Sunshine Coast of British Columbia, Mischa Brooks-Thoma was imprinted with a love and appreciation for the wild; landscapes, seascapes, flora and fauna. Artistic Creation is an inescapable
passion in Mischa’s life; she has been painting since she was able to pick up a brush.  She received a Bachelors of Fine Arts from Emily Carr University of Art and continued her education with a Diploma in Textiles from Capilano
College.  This was a time of exploration for Mischa, but it is her love of nature that spurs her imagination and drives her now to share what she sees. With an eye for line and colour and a focus on detail, Mischa captures macrocosms
through both lens and vibrant pigments.  Mischa has an ever expanding collection of photographs presenting the
Elemental Beauty found in our local areas. “Photography has been a great tool for my painting, but recently I have been painting images from my dreams. It is an equation to work through the steps in my mind and make the layers of ideas come to life.” Originals, Prints, Handmade Art cards and Fridge Magnets available; commissions welcome. Visit her website for more information.  “…tripping across the rift of creativity.”

Amber Friedman is a fabric artist who studied photography and surface design at the New Brunswick College of Craft and Design in Fredericton, NB.  She applies  her magical knowledge to  fabric,  making  one of a kind wearable art with intention.  A variety of screenprinting and shibori techniques are used to create beautiful tie dyed baby outfits, silk scarves, hand bound books and  screenprinted photographs on clothes.  If you miss Amber at the Thursday Night Market  you can find her at the Open Air Market on Sundays in Powell River, BC.  She  loves to do custom magic fabric and teach various dyeing workshops  to children and adults.




The Lund Farmers C-op is a collection of farmers & market gardeners pooling thier produce together.  They focus on organic and natural free range growing.  You can buy meat, vegetables, berries & fruit from the co-op depending on what is in season.


Beautiful fresh flower bouquets, scarves, aprons, childrens clothes, dresses, hats and sweaters.  All handmade by Rosie Fleury.



A chance pottery class in 2006 opened my eyes up to a whole new world.  My creative side was piqued, in essence, it was, in the words of Jack Troy, “like losing a non-sexual virginity, my life was changed forever, and there is no turning back.”  I immediately jumped head first into every artistic medium I could get my hands into.  As time moves on, I am narrowing my focus, while still maintaining variety.  My funtifyd creations will add spice to your living space!  Stop by and see what funky things you can find.  As well as being at the market, you can find me at the Open Air Farmers Market on Saturdays.
