Australian Bird Portraits Exhibition & Book Launch

We are very excited to announce our upcoming exhibition, new collection of artworks and very first book!

Australian Bird Portraits’ is something that’s been in the works for a while and we think you’re going to love it! It’s a book for young and old that makes a beautiful coffee table piece (and Christmas present ).

Featured within the book are new bird artworks that will also be released as limited edition prints. This new collection will also be available as canvas prints. Do you love cockatoos, kingfishers, or magpies?

Find us next week at our Exhibition & Book Launch at 51 Norton Street, Leichhardt (Bendigo Bank Pop Up) from Mon 26 – Fri 30 October.

You can discover our new artworks and eco-friendly gifts, as well as our new book that will be hand-signed.

Look forward to seeing you!

Do you support Australia’s endangered bird life?

Hello bird & art lovers,

Could you imagine your life without birds? Did you know that in Australia there are 17 endangered birds on the brink of extinction? This is a serious concern to us and we want to help make a positive difference to the future of bird wildlife.

We’ve formed an alliance with BirdLife Australia, a not-for-profit organisation that advocates for native birds and the conservation of their habitats.

To support BirdLife Australia’s great work, 25% of the profits from items marked with their logo will be donated to them.

Amongst the Natives

Limited edition signed artist prints. Designed and printed in Australia.

Bird Life Cards

100% recycled paper. Designed and printed in Australia.

A message from BirdLife Australia
“It’s not just about saving our precious birds – we all enjoy watching birds as well. This is why we help people learn about birds and conduct a diverse array of activities so that you can get out into nature and appreciate birds with like-minded people”

We have been fortunate enough to attend some local guided bird tours (run by volunteers) and found them to be fabulously educational. If you get a chance we definitely recommend!

Thank you all for your support, it means the world to us.

Creatively always
Isabelle & Melanie xx

August Newsletter 💙 How are you going in 2020?

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.

Let’s make the most of what remains of this year. And, as always THANK YOU🙏 for choosing to shop Australian Made and support our small business!

Creatively yours
Isabelle & Melanie (with baby Florence!)

This August let’s celebrate the memories and spread the love and kindness with 15% off a selection of artworks and gifts of our favourite places!
Sale ends 31 August.

We would greatly value your support 🙏  
As a small business this year has undoubtedly been tough, and if you’re sitting in a similar boat to us then we understand that now might not be the best time open your purse. We are determined to keep doing what we love, which is why we humbly ask that if you like what we do please leave us a positive review.

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.

Australian Bird Life Puzzle.

We released our 1000PC Australian Bird Life Puzzle just over a month ago and it has been so heartwarming to see the reaction it has received. Like so many of you, these last few months have been challenging, but we have been looking at how we can continue to bring you joy whilst you’ve been in isolation. And what better way that in a puzzle, where you get to create our australian bush scene piece by piece, bird by bird. We’ve loved receiving your lovely reviews and progress shots, please tag us @lasourceaustralia on instagram and facebook:
“It calms me. I love it. It’s an anxiety thing for me. Totally enjoyable.”

“It was very satisfying to finish. I loved it. The great thing about a puzzle of your art is you notice things you wouldn’t when looking at it just as a whole. The many different shades of green was something I noticed. It forces you to notice because you’re looking for the right piece.”

“It was very relaxing to do. And some of the birds in the puzzle were right outside my window as I did it.”
You can purchase your ‘Australian Bird Life Puzzle’ here.
It is also available in a double pack for you to share with your loved ones!



Hello art-lovers, yes we are still open! We are a family run business with an inhouse studio so we are able to continue safely working in isolation. We are packing your orders with gloves on to protect you.

As we had a few big events cancelled in Melbourne and Sydney and many of our retailers have temporarily closed, we have plenty of stock of all your favourite artworks and gifts for you.

Stay safe and keep supporting small businesses. It means the world to us xxx
