About Illustrator Tamsin Ainslie
Tamsin Ainslie is a popular internationally known illustrator of more than 45 children’s books; as well as book covers, stationery, greeting cards, children’s games, toys & more. She is based in Murwillumbah, Northern NSW and outside her beautiful illustrating work, she loves spending time with her family, surfing, cooking, and playing.
“…the little most important moments in life add to my work. A word, a colour, a toy, a moment. This is what my illustration is, always a work in progress, always evolving and telling a story.”
She has created this beautiful Barney Gumnut and Friends collection for Ashdene.
Ashdene are the producers of this beautiful koala gift mug. They’re an Australian owned company that has been designing high quality Tableware, Giftware and Accessories for over 25 years.
Due to the closure of Australia’s bone china manufacturing plants and declining manufacturing industry, this product has been made overseas.
We love Ashdene because although they have needed to move the manufacture of their goods overseas; they are very passionate about supporting local Australian designers and illustrators.
A cause we can really get behind here at I Still Call Australia Home!
