A heads up that I am choosing not to contact shop to replace item as it arrived damaged... there is a clear policy in place, however! This arrived from Australia to US and of course took some time, which was expected. I was excited though to receive and was anxious. It arrived this morning extremely bent in several places and it was clear that the packaging was pretty much to blame. I've ordered a lot of prints online and never had this problem, but items were better wrapped and packaged. I of course love the piece but am bummed it arrived like this.

Thank you for your feedback. Please do not hesitate to contact me if an item arrives damaged! I will do all that I can to ensure a positive outcome, and if it means sending another item, then I am more than happy to oblige! Unfortunately the postal system does not always care for our items as well as we do, so it is up to me to ensure that packaging will be improved further. A replacement print will be sent promptly. Please accept my apologies, Sincerely, Amelia.

Botanical Inspired Illustration + Stationery

Ever since I was little I have been creative, fashioning objects (toilet roll phones, newspaper handbags) out of anything I could get my hands on. As my dexterity developed, Mum’s pantry was saved when she gave me a crayon. My life so far is documented in a series of sketchbooks which contain everything from mindless doodles, to snapshots of my travels.

Working primarily with water colour and gouache, I create colourful artworks with a botanical theme, depicting flora and bird life in an illustrative style. Preferring to work with fine tipped brushes, my aim is to create intricate works of detailed patterns and lines.

Painting is my creative outlet, and a means of expressing myself. I am motivated by the challenge of capturing the images in my head on paper.
Part of my process to gather inspiration before I begin painting is to collect specimens, take photographs and study the natural patterns found around me.

I am interested in the life cycle of plants, and the natural process of life, death and renewal. I am awed by how a mighty oak is born from a tiny acorn, the way that bees and other insects pollinate flowers which then turn into fruit, and the fact that all living things will eventually die and replenish the soil. In nature, nothing is wasted. Every creature and plant has a significant role to play within its fragile ecosystem. My art has been influenced by my growing acknowledgment of the need for sustainability in a disposable society.

I’ve been told that my work communicates the unique way I see the world which I think is a nice way of putting it. I have a collection of old children’s books which I continually flick through which could explain some of the characters within my drawings. The visual stimulation readily available through magazines, the internet and film inspire me to create my own pretty things.
