6 assorted gift cards with envelopes from renowned Australian artist Meryl Bell - one of each design pictured.
These cards are perfect for a personal note or thank you! By popular demand, we have created a collection honouring the little creatures that inhabit many of Meryl Bell's paintings, especially those of the gums. Enter a bug's world and be enchanted by these little 'jewels' of the Australian bush, that are an essential part of the flora life cycle.
This little box of gift cards is designed to alert you, in a fun way, to the wonderful and vital relationship between Australian insects and flora. Meryl Bell infamously integrated little insects, lizards, spiders, butterflies, and ants into her paintings as she discovered them with every bloom she studies. Today, admirers and buyers of her paintings expect to find a little bug or creature in each work! We hope you enjoy this particular range of insects with their wonderful colours and attitudes.

About the Artist -
Born in Bridgetown, Western Australia in 1940, Meryl Bell began painting Australian native flora in 1974 using oils and techniques similar to those of the great 17th century Dutch flora artists. Creating all of her works from real life, her superbly realistic images express their brilliant colour and forms with exceptional clarity and botanical accuracy.
Throughout her travels, Meryl would gather references and work closely with botanical experts in order to gain insight into the attributes of species. At times, she would use a single-hair paintbrush to enable her to capture the exquisitely fine detail of her subjects.
Meryl said, 'Inspiration springs directly from my passion for the Australian environment with its interaction between animal, insect and bird kingdoms - the miracle of it all'.
As one of Australia's foremost still life floral artists, Meryl's paintings are featured in notable private collections in Australia, New Zealand, Europe, Asia, and North America.
