Botanical Drawing and Tea Towels

I was fortunate to be Artist in Residence at Cairns Botanic Gardens over a five year period, doing what I love - observing and drawing nature. Each year I developed a body of work for exhibition at the adjoining Tanks Arts Centre. When the residencies finished the work was toured nationally to fourteen venues, including the Australian National Botanic Gardens. During the residencies I won the Cairns Tourism Product Award for the Offshoots exhibition merchandise range of tea towels, cards and prints. That prompted me to start selling locally and on Etsy.

Each artwork takes many hours and that's after sourcing the subject matter, which sometimes means climbing a tree, wading into a lake or sweet talking a tree lopper! I'm very proud of the work that goes into each painting and I remember the specific plants in great detail. In some cases I still talk to the mother plant when I walk by in the mornings!

I take great pride in knowing that the printing is done here in Queensland on 100% pure linen tea towels and I enjoy folding and packaging each and every tea towel myself and storing them with fragrant clove sachets, ready for speedy dispatch!

Shop members

  • Julie McEnerny

    Owner

    I work from my home studio in beautiful Far North Queensland where I draw, paint, design and package my products.

Production partners

  • Cairns Plan Printing

    Cairns, QLD

    I actually don't remember life without Cairns Plan Printing. They're an old Cairns firm and the owner recently retired, now his son runs the business. And then there's Gordon, my main man - always ready to help!

  • Kainos Print

    Canberra, ACT

    Andrew and Kay Hingley run Kainos Print who print my greeting cards. I found them on line when I needed a cost effective Aussie printer for short runs of cards. That was 5 years ago and I'm still impressed!

  • Tea Towel Printers

    QLD, Australia

    Ever heard the cliché about a business starting on the kitchen bench? Well my tea towel printers is one of them. That was 1992, now they employ around 13 local people and use state of the art printing equipment. I'm lucky to have found them!
