About

Sick of seeing tacky Australian gifts not made in Australia!

Born in Scotland and now living in Brisbane, Australia I am continually inspired by the sub-tropical rainforests and the exotic colours and patterns of the parrots who visit our garden. Not to leave out the unique marsupials and fauna with whom we share our natural world.

I have always been drawn to nature and wildlife, in particular birds. Birds have always featured highly in my work and I could observe, photograph and paint them all day long.

I opened up my business Oz Wildlife Studio for three reasons - my love of wildlife, art and the desire to produce quality, hand-made gifts with an Australian flavour to improve on the cheap, imported and tacky tourist gifts I kept seeing everywhere. Coming over to Australia from Scotland, I too was initially a tourist and began to think about ways I could create my own range of "Australiana".

I enjoy working with a wide range of art media resulting in both traditional and digital artforms. I am at my happiest making artworks in my studio and nothing else compares with the creative process.

I am a solo-operator - I design, make, print, assemble, package all of my products myself. I only outsource the printing of the large poster prints.
