The skies at night in a cube. Note that the paint comes a bit tacky and has a bit of plastic so don't be surprised.

Wow. Beautiful soft Raw Sienna, what you want in this hue. LOVE it. Note that the paint comes a bit tacky and has a bit of plastic so don't be surprised.

Gorgeous deep madder red as described. I love it. A bit grainy, not too, blends from light to dark as shown. Note that the paint comes a bit tacky and has a bit of plastic so don't be surprised.

About

The story so far

Thank you for visiting my Etsy Shop.

I was born in Italy in 1984. I come from Porto Recanati, Le Marche on the central Italian eastern coast. I have always been deeply fascinated and attracted by animals and nature, especially birds. Drawing and painting started in my childhood, when I spent some time living in the country, spending hours lost in a blissful solitude watching birds with my binoculars. I fell in love with watercolours and bird portraiture after a book by Marjolein Bastin and another book by Louis Agassiz Fuertes. I am a self taught water-colourist since 1995.

Life events eventually brought me to Brisbane, Australia in 2009. Here, my creativity started to pour out thanks to the charming Australian wildlife that lives in a very close contact with humans.

In 2012 I opened this online store to share my artworks. In the same year I started a collaboration with Australian publisher Nuovo Group who turned my artworks into greeting cards and bookmarks. From 2014, a selection of my original framed watercolours are displayed in the Coastal Artisans gallery in Peregian Beach, Queensland, Australia.

In 2014 I started making my own watercolour paints, a process that I found very rewarding and satisfying. You can find more information on the process on my blog. Today, the only paints that I am using are my own handmade watercolour paints.

My ultimate wish is to pay attention to the beauty of nature and to its fleeting essence and to be able to share it, my work is derived from my own photographs taken while birdwatching and bush-walking.

I support: ANTaR (Australians for National Title and Reconciliation), Birds Queensland and Bush Heritage Australia.
