It's our privilege to connect with you! We are a Australian-owned family business based in Seattle area, focused on providing 'a taste of Australia' to US-based Australians and friends. We've hand-picked high-quality originals that we enjoy in our home, and know that you'll appreciate these unique items too!
As a thank you to those that sign up for our newsletter this month, we're offering a free gift from our Meryl Bell Collection. We came across Bell Art & Meryl Bell's work a few months ago, and were just wow'd by her ability to catch the subtle detail of nature. Meryl marvelled at the synergy between the native plants, animals, birds and insects which live together and depend so much on each other. She included many small creatures in her paintings, something which has become a much-loved hallmark of her work.
As one of Australia’s foremost still life floral artists, Meryl’s paintings are featured in notable private collections around the world. Her superbly realistic images express their brilliant colour and forms with exceptional clarity and botanical accuracy. Meryl passed away in 2009 after a brave fight with leukemia. Meryl's art serves as a constant reminder to us all to take the time, as she did, to appreciate nature's bounty!
As you'll see in future updates, we source exclusively from family-owned businesses in Australia that have a personal story to them. So whether it's our silk scarves & hand lotion with Aboriginal designs, or 2-layer Aussie map puzzles - we'll bring you the stories behind our unique products that are proudly Made in Australia.
We continue to source new products from Down Unda'. If you have a category you'd like to see, send us a note or contact us through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, or Pinterest...we'd love to hear from you!
