{ alula prints: for sale! }

Meet Alula.

She is a pretty little thing with her long lashes and coquettish smile, and she is my very first artwork to be made to a print!

Just in time for the Christmas cheer, I am releasing a limited edition run of fifty Alula prints for sale. They come on a beautiful archival quality Hahnemuhle cotton rag paper at 8" x 10" in size, and each is hand-numbered and signed by me.

She looks super cute in a nursery or makes a sweet Christmas gift - and the good news is I can ship these anywhere! So wherever you are in the world, please email me if you are interested in purchasing an Alula of your own.

These fine art prints are $65 AUD each (plus postage) and come in a cellophane envelope with a foamcore backing, and shipped in a padded mailer. For shipping prices or if you'd like any more information, contact me at .

And be sure to keep an eye out......... because in a week or two some very exciting new things will also be making their way here for sale - let's just say I can definitely feel Summer coming on!

AN IMPORTANT PS: You may recognise Alula from a few posts ago here - her namesake (and owner of the original) is the new daughter of a very darling friend of mine. Z - congratulations on  bringing into the world such a beautiful little girl and for being the inspiration behind my very first print. I'm glad we started with you. xx

{ lately... }

A hydrangea commission off to it's new home this week! 

These seashells are one of three pieces that are going to a lovely customer's Straddie house...

... and these are some of mine....

The hydrangea earlier on...

Some very sweet peas - a housewarming gift and beautiful addition to our new living room...

I did a lily a week or two back... I often enjoy the 'pre' paint piece as much as the finished one.

And for good measure, some Spring time lavender.

Here's a few things that have been keeping me busy lately. Pretty shells, blooming hydrangeas a lily and more... 

I have a bit been absent these past few weeks as we've just moved house; and let me tell you that amongst all the odds & ends of (re)organising your life, a shifty Internet connection has got to be up there as one of the most time-consuming and frustrating glitches to have! 

Technology aside though, I am head over heels in love with our new home. It's been not two weeks but already I feel so settled and happy here..... it's a very wonderful feeling. I will do a proper post soon and show you some more pics, but here are a few details from around the house this week in the meantime. 

It's well and truly Springtime here - but what's even better is that Summer is peeping its bright and sunny head around the corner. I love this time of year so much and can't wait for what's going to be a busy but very fun lead up to Christmas!

By the time most read this it will be in time for a 'Happy Friday' - here's to the first week of October , down, and have a great weekend everyone.
