Australian Artist Spotlight: Red Parka Designs

I have long wanted an amazing red KitchenAid mixer, but have always had other things to spend the $700+ on. A close second to the real thing is this fun print by Red Parka Designs.

Based in Melbourne, Tasmanian artist Jen of Red Parka Designs creates fantastic wall art for kitchen, nursery, toy room, or anywhere you need a splash of colour and dash of whimsy. Any piece in Jen's range of kitchen art prints would look amazing in my kitchen. And the clever "collective nouns" range of animals are so fun for kids.

Jen also has a real 'thing' for elephants. For every elephant greeting card sold from her website Red Parka donates $1 to the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust in Kenya, a great organisation that looks after orphaned elephants. What other excuse do you need, next time you're looking for a card?

You can find Red Parka Designs art prints and greeting cards in the online store as well as at various markets around Melbourne.
