Our range of Australian Native Bird illustrations are now available as beautiful 20cm x 20cm art prints. Designed and made in Perth, Western Australia, we print onto 100% earth friendly paper stocks, using vegetable based inks.

 

The Budgerigar is a colourful parrot native to Australia. Its plumage is bright yellow & green, with a blue cheek & black scalloping on its wing feathers. You may know them as ‘Budgies’, but do you know that the common name is derived from a Gamilaraay Aboriginal language name ‘Betcherrygah’, which is thought to mean ‘good food’.


It’s unknown whether this means that the bird itself is good eating, or whether their seed-seeking migrations led Gamilaraay to places of rainfall & abundant food.

 

Using hand Painted layers & mark making, along with additional photographs of textures & surfaces we find within our environment, such as rusted metals, stone walls, paper, sand & fabric, are layered to create our colourful & unique digital collages.

 



Overall print size is 20cm x 20cm, including the border.

 

Our art prints are printed onto 100% recyclable paper using vegetable based inks and packaged using a 100% recycled pulp backing board and 100% recycled cello bags for extra protection.
