My very latest drawing, Mānuka, had its very first outing at Eat, Drink & Be Crafty 2017 yesterday. This drawing was inspired by my interest in Rongoā Māori (Traditional Māori healing), and will be the first in that series.
I drew the Mānuka from two samples snipped from one of our own trees, and used it as an exercise to time myself for future commissions – this was about 7 hours’ work, all up.
It’s really thrilling when people recognise the plant from my drawings – I was so pleased that several friends and customers knew exactly what they were seeing, even when the flowers weren’t to scale.
If you’re keen to buy my Mānuka designs, you can get them on Spoonflower as soon as I can approve my samples:
Or on RedBubble (plenty of products available in each design):
