Amanda Brooks


Amanda's unique work reflects the contemporary, casual and colour filled lifestyle of the picturesque Sunshine Coast, Queensland...

Living in the Noosa hinterland she shares a home with her Husband, their daughter Coco, and younger Twins Jasper and Indigo. She will happily ship artwork worldwide and offers a 3/5 day door to door delivery service within Australia .

Amanda Brooks' work on large canvases are vibrant and textured using a combination of acrylics, ink washes and oils creating layer  upon layer reflecting  her love of nature, music and the coast. From her whimsical birds and animals  , abstract contemporary florals ,ocean pools to her compositions of beautiful bowls, fruit, and kitchen finery, Amanda's work captures light and form in a breathtaking manner .

Her dedication to observing nature is displayed in the way she approaches her textured contemporary landscapes, whimsical figurines , fresh bold florals and floating hummingbirds . "When one is in touch with nature no season passes unnoticed", says Amanda.

Amanda comes from a family of artists, dancers and musicians . She started as a graphic designer, moving on to teach painting. This brings to her work a discipline and lifelikeness that is often hard to find in the work of contemporary painters. Attention to detail, composition, interesting layers of paint washes and textures and an eye for colour have made her work highly prized, being represented in private collections throughout South-east Asia, Europe, the United States and Australia. Amanda is now a successfully published artist overseas. 

It is the warmth the paintings bring to people's homes and lives that attracts buyers.

Karina Jambrak

I am a coffee fuelled, colour & pattern loving, interior design obsessed illustrator and graphic designer based in Sydney, Australia.

A little bit about me …

I have drawn for as long as I can remember. The first amount of money I ever earned was from selling artworks at Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach markets back in 2001 when I was 17. Fresh out of high school with no job, no qualifications and no money I painted a batch of canvases and sat at the markets week after week. I still remember the feeling I felt when I sold my largest canvas on my first day.

In 2005 I graduated from the University of NSW, College of Fine Arts with a Bachelor's degree in Design majoring in Textile and Graphic Design. Since then I have pursued a design career combining my artistic ability with graphic skills. My unique approach to art and design has led me to work with some amazing and iconic brands such as Mambo, Westpac, Tigerlily, Nakula Coconut Products, Kawaiian Lion & most recently, The Jungalow.

For me, there is nothing better than bringing happiness to people through art — so, after 13 years of working in design, I have decided to go back to my roots and embark on a new journey of drawing and selling my illustrations.

All of my artworks are inspired by nature and are hand drawn with copic markers. I would describe them as colourful, full of rich tones and intricate patterns. Illustrations are Giclee printed on 100% textured cotton rag, 310gsm museum grade fine art paper (OBA - FREE with no optical brighteners). They are printed in Australia using the highest quality materials and are made to order to prevent waste. 

 


 

Squirrel Designs 

Who would have thought that New York City was the birthplace for Husband and Wife duo, Bernard & Elleni's, Squirrel Design Studio. Having a lifelong passion for cards and stationary, it wasn't until Bernard & Elleni took a moment of reflection in Washington Park Square where the idea for Squirrel Design Squirrel formed after being startled by two squirrels scattering through the park. Inspired by their quirk, charm and resourcefulness, The Squirrels scampered their way into Bernard & Elleni's hearts and they decided to start their business right then and there on that park bench in New York. Perhaps it is the city of dreams after all! With the help of good friend Pedro and young up and coming artists Jasper, the
squirrel clan was now complete!  After two years of planning, designing, drawing, design veto’s, more designing and  redrawing we are now proud to present the work of Squirrel Design Studio.

Oh... and if you see two squirrels running around Washington Park Square please let us know! We've been trying to contact them for royalties. Despite the idea for Squirrel Design Studio forming in New York, we are one of the few card and stationary companies that are 100% Australian in our creation, production and distribution.

All of Squirrel Design Studio Cards start off being hand drawn by our in-house artists before transforming into the unique, innovative handcrafted cards for you to share with your loved ones.

A Brisbane based company, we are constantly inspired by the amazing country we live in, and the wit and humour that is persistent in our culture.

We hope to embody this in our designs and make you smile or laugh or help you share a story or moment with others.

InkheArt - Mahlah

Mahlah is a mother of 4 who lives in Forbes NSW Australia. Mahlah works full-time at a School in student services, but art is her first Love.

"I am very passionate about creating and expressing myself through my work. I was diagnosed with Ovarian cancer when I was 39 and due to treatment I went into surgical menopause with a side of anxiety. Painting helps with my anxiety. I am so grateful every day that I am able to keep creating I love being able to share my passion with you all and offer affordable Art for all to enjoy. I am drawn to animals and flowers that resonates with my colourful background in tattooing which I finished up when my third son was born. I love to spread positive vibes with my work.

I now work solely with digital paint brushes, I paint using a wacom tablet. I love painting this way because it allows me to paint wherever I go. We love to travel in our caravan so painting on the road is not a problem. 

Painting digitally also allows me to customise colours easy to suit customers needs. On rare occasions I still love to get messy with some acrylic work. I offer Australian made canvas prints of my work on my website and wholesale prints through the homewares company Rayell."
