This basket is absolutely gorgeous and so well made -- it looks even better in real life! This is a gift, but I love it so much I want to keep it myself :) Super quick postage and Melanie was a delight to deal with. Thank you!

Recently nominated as one of the 16 most beautiful trees in the world - these trees in the remote Catlins area of NZ are a product of their harsh but beautiful, windswept environment - where the icy weather from Antarctica makes its first landfall.
Beautiful wardrobe smells are just a drop away...
Deep and moody. Delicious brush strokes and marks. So much to love.

About

Evoking the texture and beauty of nature

Original art by southern NZ based artist Melanie McKenzie. Bringing 'the outdoors in' from the edge of the world to your home: evoking the raw beauty of nature through art.

Art can be a metaphor - or it can be just a beautiful scene. Art can hang on your walls - or hang around your neck. Art is in the eye - and the emotions - of the beholder.

The gathering storm front stirs powerful forces and emotions, the whimsy of cottonwool clouds is inspiring and restful and the dreamy quality of the soft melting of the sky and sea (aka the horizon) evokes memories of hazy summer days.

Art that speaks to you is a gift that transgresses your eyes and moves straight to your heart. See it. Feel it. Love it.

You'll know. That moment. When it all just falls into place: The Penny Drops.

It's my privilege to bring you The Penny Drops - and those moments. I am New Zealand-based artist Melanie McKenzie (nee Penny). I paint, sew and create from a studio in rural Southland - with a backdrop that includes the Great Southern Ocean (next stop Antartica...), the Southern Scenic Route and the beautiful Catlins. Colour, texture and material inspiration is never far away in this rugged, exposed landscape.

Being moved so deeply by my surroundings translates also to an abiding passion for beautiful style and interiors, and even more so about contributing to unique homes that speak of the occupants lives and loves. Bringing 'the outdoors in' is a natural progression: wrapping our homes in a curated selection of landscape inspired art.
