About

From the Echidna's perspective...

Explore and experience...
I was a science and visual arts educator in Canada. When we came to Australia, we had not planned to stay. However, this country has given us a new perspective, a chance to do things differently and to try something new. The Echidna is a pretty special animal, being one of only two monotremes in the world; choosing it as a name for our shop marks the beginning of our story.

"Look deep into nature, and then you will understand everything better."
- Albert Einstein
The more we spend time connecting with nature, the more we marvel at how amazing it is, and how everything is inter-connected. We hope that our photography not only brings beauty into your home, but also serves as a reminder that nature needs conservation, preservation and respect, so that future generations can continue to enjoy the wonders of this planet.

"The essence of all art is to have pleasure in giving pleasure."
- Dale Carnegie
A bird's feather, or a fallen leaf can become inspiration for my artwork. Whether in painting, printmaking or experimental exploration, elements of nature can be found. Sometimes these elements are reduced to lines and colours, representing the subject in a new way. I am excited by fresh ideas, and strive to transfer my imagination and creativity into aesthetic and visual art pieces.

Jewellery design has developed into a passion since being handed a pile of past seasons' leather swatches by a local furniture maker. I am environmentally conscious in my day to day life. So recycling leather is a natural extension. Making each item by hand involves merging creative thoughts with the processes of printing, painting, cutting, assembling, etc. Now, I have added new fabric designs using samples and remnants. My jewellery is earthy, modern, and created with sustainability in mind.

Enjoy...
So when you see something in our shop that reminds you of a special time or place, puts a smile on your face, or is something you just love, we sincerely hope that our work makes lasting impressions and most importantly, a special connection with you.

We would love to see you share posts with our products on social media. Share with hashtags #echidnaartandcards and #makelastingimpressions.

Frequently asked questions

What sizes are available for photography prints?

We offer many standard sizes that fit ready made frames to make decorating simple and economical. If you wish to have a print in a different size from what's offered, please contact us. We may be able to customize it for you. Some of our photographs are only printed in certain sizes for optimal image quality.

What does computer monitor display variance have to do with my print?

Since each computer monitor displays colours slightly differently, the colours of the print you receive may vary slightly from what you see on your computer screen.

Do you combine shipping?

When you purchase more than one item, we combine shipping whenever possible based on size and weight of the items. It is sometimes difficult to estimate shipping charges on multiple items. Any overestimated shipping charges in excess of AUD$2 will be refunded .

How will my order be packaged?

We care about the environment and will often recycle packaging materials to send our orders. Please do not be offended when you receive some of our items packaged in repurposed materials. We try our best to reduce waste and reuse precious resources.
Large photography prints will be securely sent in mailing tubes.

What happens if my item arrives damaged?

We package each order carefully. Unfortunately damage may still occur in transit beyond our control. If your item arrives damaged, please contact us with a photograph of the damaged item within 5 days of receiving the item. We will be happy to replace it.

What is the European Union Directive on Consumer Rights?

For customers residing in the EU, new regulations protecting consumer rights are in effect, including your rights to return an item within 14 days of receiving a purchased item. In such a case, item must be unused and in original packaging.
For health and hygiene reasons, earrings cannot be returned once the packaging is unsealed.
