The Aussie Series
“ A bird sitting in a tree is never afraid of the branch breaking, because her trust is not in the branch, but in her own wings.” - Anon
Bold, precious jewel-like characters display the vibrant, confident diversity of evolution - not just within the birds themselves but the native Australian plants used to form their feathers too.
Cara the Sulphur Crested Cockatoo has been sensitively hand drawn using Native Australian Flora and Fauna as inspiration, such as eucalyptus, bottle brush and tea tree leaves
Lolly is a Galah Cockatoo, her pretty in pink plumage uses flowering gum, bottlebrush and golden wattle amongst other native Australian plants.
Who could resist the laugh of the Kookaburra sitting in the ol’ Gum Tee? Cookie’s feathers include weeping lilly, kurrajong and the holly fuchsia
Ruby-Woo the Red Tailed Black Cockatoo has some interestingly named Australian plants as her feathers such as, fiddle leaf fig tree, old man salt bush, and a Correa ‘Dusky Bells’ flower
Wax flowers, banksia cone, pink protea, the monkey puzzle plant and so many more, make up Major Coralie, the Major Mitchell pink Cockatoo
