Bushfire hits close to home

This bushfire season has ravaged so much of Australia and a couple of weeks ago it hit our neighbourhood & our bush property ‘La Source’ in Tomboye near Braidwood NSW. Thankfully our amazing neighbours & the local RFS (aka our heros) managed to put it out. Everyone was safe and all our homes were saved. (Here they are in action not far from our shack.)

We received the news yesterday from our local RFS that our local Charleys Forest Fire is now declared as controlled. There have been several fires in the last 2 weeks on our property so we are so thankful! Bravo to our incredible firies!

The fires are still raging across Australia and are no where near over. What has been amazing is how the community has shown great support and compassion for each other. There are many worthy causes that we have supported and we encourage you to get behind if you can. Such as the giving to the Red Cross Disaster Relief Fund or directly to your local RFS station. Much love to you if you have been affected xxx

Red Cross Bushfire Appeal

We’ve just woken up to the terrible news of two young volunteer firefighters passing away whilst on the job last night, as well as others injured. Fires are raging throughout¬†Australia, and we’re all feeling it. We like to give back to our community through our goodwill projects/donations and this month, we are giving to the Australia Red Cross Disaster Relief fund. Please consider how you too can support our firefighters and those struggling in this crazy bushfire season.

Creative Partner for Communicating the Arts & Culture Business Conferences.

The last couple weeks have been very busy for us with our Creative Partnership of the 24th International ‘Communicating the Arts’ and ‘Culture Business’ Conferences. What an amazing experience to have been with over 200 international cultural leaders and innovators, discussing Cultural Leadership in the Arts. Being a part of this sharing of ideas, is what inspires a studio like ours to keep leading in innovation and relevance in the 21st Century. We pride ourselves on being eco-friendly and uniqute in our approach to nature and we were stoked to be the Creative Partner! See some highlights below!

Goodwill Project – Giant Steps Sydney


Each month, we like to give back to local groups and charities. (Yes you’re right, we haven’t shared for the last few months, but we’ve been giving an ongoing donation to Amnesty International.) This month, we are giving to Giant Steps Sydney – a school located in Gladesville catering specifically for children with Autism Spectrum Disorder. They run a world leading program to support young people reach their maximum potential.

‚̧4 Day French Festival next week in Sydney + Sweet news to share!‚̧

Hello to our fellow fauna and flora artlovers!

Lots has happened since we last touched base. Two lucky ladies won our Mother’s Day artwork prizes, we’ve had a few markets, we created a new 2020 Calendar and a fun Cockatoo pin and we’re currently finishing a new Paris artwork for next week… but the most exciting news is that our team has grown! After nine very challenging months with hyperemesis (all day sickness), Melanie gave birth to a healthy little girl – Florence Joy. And what a joy she is!¬†

Florence and proud mumma Melanie.

In case you didn’t know, everything created at La Source Australia is done so by us – artists Isabelle and her daughter Melanie. We are a small team spanning three generations with now two little people (Juliette and her baby sister Florence who keep us inspired and on our toes). We love that we can¬†create our artworks and other gifts together locally in Sydney. And we have designed our whole collection to be¬†lightweight as our uniquely Australian gifts¬†often travel the globe. We love the environment¬†(if you couldn’t tell by looking at our work) and so we take pride in being eco-friendly¬†using 100% post recycled paper for most of our work and¬†and having¬†sustainability practices included within the ethos of our business.
