About

Distinctive illustration and textile design from the Blumengarten studio

I'm D.
I've been captivated by (and maybe a little obsessed with) flora since I was a little kid running around in our family garden. The colour, the amazing detail, the diversity, the texture, the infectious cheerfulness, the ability to grow in between cracks in the concrete...what's not to love?

I think it's remarkable that flowers can be so complex yet evoke such uncomplicated delight. I guess this duality is what I'm trying to convey in my work, inviting a closer inspection of the detail.

After thinking I wanted to be a florist for a while, I eventually studied design, and now feel comfortable calling myself an artist, a designer and a jeweller. I'm easily distracted by experimenting with different materials and learning new skills, but I'm never too far away from pencil and paper or needle and thread.

While I appreciate the speed and convenience of computer-aided design, I believe it's vital to preserve traditional techniques and hand skills, so these will always feature in my work in some way. Handmade is simply lovelier. Without the human element, everything starts to look the same, and that's just boring.

As a child of the 70's and the daughter of Europeans, my work is influenced by 1950's - 1970's design, traditional costumes (especially the ridiculously labour-intensive embroidery) and folk or naive art. I also admire the simple, considered, timeless forms of Scandinavian design.

I love the whole process of designing and making...from initial scribbles, through the trial and error of sampling, material and colour selection, the tactile delights of hand making, all the way through to the photography. All my artwork is produced in my home studio in Sydney.

Additional Information - Returns and Refunds - Faulty Goods

The purchase price of an item will be refunded if the product is faulty or not as described.
To obtain a refund in this case, please contact me within 14 calendar days of receipt. Arrangements will then be made for you to return the goods (at your cost) with proof of purchase.
After receipt of the returned goods by Blumengarten and inspection, a refund of the purchase price will be made.
As noted in the product descriptions for the cushion covers, the texture of the cushion front fabric may produce slight inconsistencies in the printing process. This will not be considered to be a product fault for the purposes of a refund.
Refunds will not be given after expiry of the 14 day contact period mentioned above.

Additional Information - Postal Damage or Lost Parcels

Blumengarten packs its items to ensure they are well-protected for their trip to their new home.

If this is a concern for you, please contact me before ordering to request insurance or tracking for your shipment at an additional cost.
Please note tracking is already offered for some items shipped within Australia.

Additional Information - Returns and Refunds - Change of Mind

Refunds will not be made for change of mind.
If you receive a product in good condition, a return cannot be arranged as a result of not liking the product.
Blumengarten is a private individual operating as a sole trader, not a company, so the 14 day cooling off period for online customers based in the EU does not apply.
