Noferin working in studio. 2009Since our move back to Sydney, our vision of Carrara Island has become much stronger. Previous work was more of a glimpse into the lives of the Pecanpals. The future is the tales told in full. We are noticing a much brighter colour palate creeping into the work. It makes us happy.

Pecanpals are ready to adopt!

We have been busy preparing some hand carved, hand cut, hand painted and hand pressed wooden prints as part of a thank you for those who are going to adopt a whole set of our Natural Wood Pecanpals in early May. Here are some progress pictures from the incredibly enjoyable, yet time-consuming printing process. The prints are on wood and each one is different.
