About the Artist
Hi there and welcome to bettybluebelle!
My name is Anna and I am the sole designer and creator here. An artist from as early as I can remember,
I have always had a love of anything creative. When painting I predominately work in watercolour although am beginning to explore more with gouache and acrylics as well.
I studied art all through high school and then trained to become a primary school teacher. Although I do still work casually as a teacher, while I was on maternity leave for the second time I begun painting again and with the encouragement of family and friends decided to start selling my artwork. Since then I have grown my range to include original works, prints, greeting cards, baby milestone cards, fabric design and earrings. I have also worked with other small businesses to design artwork for their own products!
My designs are painted with floral and animal lovers in mind but especially those who love Australian native plants, bird and animals. I am passionate about the conservation of the Australian bush and hope to raise awareness of our native plants and the effect they have on the ecosystem as a whole.
I really enjoy painting these pieces that spark love, memories and happiness when people see them. It is amazing to be able to help my customers create a beautiful, natural vibe in their home, a space where they can relax and be at peace in their surroundings. Sustainable practices and creating an awareness of the environmental footprint we leave on the earth are very important to me so all of my greeting cards are made from 100% recycled card. I am also in the process of changing my packaging to biodegradable cellophane.
I truly hope you enjoy viewing my artwork and find something that you can admire everyday in your own home.
