Love, love, love these beautiful Aussie-themed gifts

These gifts arrived beautifully gift-wrapped accompanied by a handwritten card with my message to my Mum on her birthday. I live overseas, so finding a retailer that I can trust to provide high quality and unique gifts to my loved ones back home is so important. "I still call Australia home" provides just that, with great customer service and very reliable quality as well as timely delivery. The delivery, in a beautiful box with the card, was so thoughtful. The tray itself is gorgeous! Perfect for entertaining in my Mum's beautiful home surrounded by her gorgeous Aussie garden. High quality workmanship, stylish, and gorgeous. I was proud to give these items as gifts. And the process was just so reliable, which is important from the other side of the world. Thank you! Olivia

Description

Another stunning homeware gift from Meryl Bell’s oil painting of the Showy Banksia.

About the Artist – Meryl Bell

Meryl-Bell-artist-native-australian-floraMeryl Bell was born in Bridgetown, in southern Western Australia.

She began painting Australian native flora in 1974, using oils and techniques similar to those of the great 17th century Dutch floral artists.

Meryl created all of her work from real life, growing or collecting fresh flowers throughout her travels. She worked closely with botanical experts to gather references and gain greater insight into the unique attributes of species.

Each of Meryl’s major paintings would take many months, or even years, to complete. At times, she would use a single-hair paintbrush to enable her to capture the exquisitely fine detail of her subjects.

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.

Bell Art aims to honour Meryl’s memory through these beautiful products that celebrate her work.
