Announcement   Welcome, dear nature connoisseur! In my little shop you’ll be able to find beautiful original paintings, quality prints and greeting cards that celebrate plant life, especially Australian native flora.

I usually paint from life, only rarely using my own photographs, when the subject is unavailable or is too short-lived. I scan and create the prints myself to replicate the colours as closely as possible, so my customers are sometimes unable to tell the difference between the original painting and the print.

I use the best quality archival and lightfast materials for both my paintings & prints to ensure they last a life-time.

All my items are carefully packaged in plastic protective sleeves with cardboard backing. They are sent in the sturdy cardboard envelopes to protect them during their journeys to you.

It brings me great joy to observe nature and to capture some of its everyday beauty in my work. I hope my paintings and prints will brighten up the walls of your home and bring a calm and happy feeling to your heart.

I hope you’ll have a lovely day and please don’t hesitate to contact me with any further questions,

About

Original botanical watercolour paintings & quality prints that celebrate nature’s beauty

It is so easy to walk by something beautiful without noticing it, while worrying about the tasks yet to be accomplished and day-dreaming of the future adventures. In my paintings I want to capture the beauty of everyday objects and nature in all its variety of shapes, colours and textures.

I’ve been drawing & painting regularly for over four years and use professional quality art supplies for all my original paintings. As my watercolour skills increase, so does my love for this fluid, unpredictable and transparent medium. I love combining beautifully saturated colours with muted earth tones to achieve a fresh, joyful and yet serene look.

Painting and drawing are my chosen forms of communication, as Georgia O'Keefe said ”I found I could say things with color and shapes that I couldn't say any other way. . . things I had no words for." I hope that via my paintings I can share with you some of the beauty that I see in the world.
