Greetings fellow art & nature lovers,
Welcome to our August newsletter!
In these strange times when everything is connected by the internet it’s surprisingly easy to feel lonely and detached. Our calendar was wiped clean of events, and our stockists closed their doors to keep people safe. We honestly missed seeing your beautiful faces at the annual Melbourne Flower Show and the Canberra Handmade Market.
Here’s our silver lining… we have been alone together and we’ve had time to work on both our art and ourselves. Time, to slow down and reflect on the people and places that are truly important to us.
We now invite you to remember happier times too with a special sale on our curated artist prints and thoughtful gifts that celebrate the best of Sydney, Melbourne, Canberra and Paris.

In mid July we released our most recent limited edition print, ‘Spotted Pardalotes’. It is available from our website in three standard sizes; small (A4), medium (A3), and large (A2).
As soon as I discovered these tiny native birds, I fell in love. I am mesmerised by the rich contrasting tones within the feathers. Their tails have the most incredible and distinct spotted pattern that to me, appears to mimic speckled sunlight through leaves. I have sought to capture the elegance spotted pardalotes possess as they flit and perch among the eucalypt and grevillea flowers.
You will find us at these markets on Sunday August 9 from 8:30am – 3:00pm.
(Please check the details closer to the event as we are poised for a cancellation due to current spikes of covid19 across Sydney.
We are excited to once again be included in the @HandmadeCanberra Virtual Market! Whilst we miss being in Canberra, this is pretty sweet as you can shop all the fabulous handmade, Australian made products from the comfort of your own home! Plus you know you’re supporting other australian small businesses so it’s a win win! Save the date, Saturday 26 September 9am-9pm. We’ll also have a cheeky special for you on the day.
Alternatively, you might enjoy a stroll through Sydney’s Botanical Gardens. In which case you can peruse a collection of our art and gifts in The Royal Botanic Garden Shop, which is currently open Friday to Sunday.Humble Beginnings
If you happen to be near Randwick, Humble Beginnings is a gorgeous gift shop currently stocking a limited selection of our work (including puzzles!). They are open Monday to Saturday.
