Markets!

Posted by Nadya on May 10, 2013

I’ve been enjoying doing the local markets here in Brisbane! Here is a picture of my market stall, this was last weekend at Inspired 2013. :)

The event was organised by a wonderful local artist Kylie Farrelly, as a fundraiser for the Royal Brisbane Women’s Hospital.

One of the most wonderful things about the markets is being able to talk to people about my work, and hear their stories about animals they feel a connection with. For example, someone at Inspired purchased my Tawny Frogmouth print, and shared a story about how a wild Tawny Frogmouth came to live on their balcony – what a special experience!

All of these prints shown can be purchased in my Etsy shop!


It’s November already?!

Where did the time go!? Someone tell me, please?

Wow. I’ve got a lot of blog catching-up to do…I’ve been busy participating in two art exhibitions over the last month!

Creating For Conservation 2011 was held in Adelaide, South Australia on October 7-9th. I wish I could say I visited South Australia, but only two of my paintings went on the trip – and one of them has sold! The “Springbok Portrait” in watercolour and ink was 100% donation to Painted Dog Conservation Inc, raising money for their conservation and community education initiatives in Namibia, Zambia, and Zimbabwe. I’m very proud of my little antelope!

Next up was Wildlife In Art 2011, which ran from Oct 29-Nov 6th, at the Richard Randall Gallery at Mt Coot-tha Botanic Gardens, Brisbane. It was organised by the QLD Wildlife Artists Society, of which I am a proud member, and it is always so amazing to see what the other artists have created for the exhibitions. QWASI is an incredible and inspiring group of artists. This exhibition was focused on our wonderful Australian wildlife, with many original paintings as well as cards and prints. (But, between running around and finishing a new painting, organising prints, organising framing, etc, that left no time at all for blogging!)

I will talk about my new artwork that was created for that exhibition, in a separate blog post, as it is a painting of a dear feathered friend who comes to visit me nearly every morning! My friend is a wild Pale-Headed Rosella.

What’s next? The next QWASI exhibition will be in February at the Logan Art Gallery… I’m already working on a new painting for it, so hopefully, it won’t be such a crazy rush to get framing organised.
