This got me to thinking that we have become The new art destination for up and coming artists of all genre. We have ceramicists and painters we have musicians and jewelry makers in fact the whole spectrum of art makers has navigated their way to Thanet and it has worked its artistic ways across Thanet Margate Ramsgate and Broadstairs are Thanets main towns but I know of artists in Birchington Westgate Minster and Acol and I image all points in between.

A short while ago I was tweeting about a jewellery maker and as I am tying I am tweeting to and fro with Emilly Tull and her connection with eclecTicArt in Broad Street Margate
So if Thanet was good enough for J.M.W.Turner maybe the current artists who are calling Thanet home can be somewhere near as successful in their own chosen fields, after all Success breeds success
