SPOTTED: CARLA FLETCHER.

Although we live in a multicultural society, as Australians, we do possess our own unique style. This is more so evident I've learnt, when you travel and discover other cultures and lifestyles distinct from our own. I've become more aware of how Australian homes are strongly influenced by their surroundings, colour and nature in particular. 

Australian artist and Archibald prize nominee, Carla Fletcher has found a way to capture the Australian spirit in her creative talents as an artist. Her amazingly detailed illustrations of Australian fauna is such a beautiful way to inject national pride into the home.

By focusing on the emotive qualities of the characters she illustrates, Carla expresses feeling and and personality in a playful way into her designs. Her limited edition prints of iconic Australian fauna are my favourites from her collection, especially the cute-faced koala known as The Alchemist

Ooooh, so adorable is The Alchemist.
