Is there anything more dull than a bare wall?

These print makers are here to decorate your place and brighten up your living space(s).

Emma Morgan

Mornington Peninsula-based artist, Emma Morgan, has combined a love of animals and a talent for figure drawing to create an adorable collection of prints.The Monash University visual arts graduate uses her predominantly pigment ink-pen drawings to explore our relationship with the creatures around us. You’ll find most of Emma’s drawings in black and white, with the occasional splash of watercolour to add a burst of brightness. Emma’s drawings aren’t just for your walls. You can order her prints on tote bags, cards, cushions and kitchenware. Though it’s cute and all, you’re also supporting Emma’s plan to help endangered wildlife in the future.

Mary & Sally

Long-time besties, Mary and Sally, are proving nothing but good can come out of a strong friendship. The Sydney-based duo creates greeting cards and prints to suit every occasion, from life’s grand celebrations to its little achievements.The designs don’t feature quotes you see everywhere: they’re a little more personal and a whole lot of special.Mixing typography, hand lettering and illustrations, they look just as pretty framed on a mantelpiece as they do for a birthday gift. With words of encouragement and inspiration, your desk/bedroom/kitchen update is sorted.

Marvelle

Deb and Dave are great friends and even greater interior photographers and stylists. Together, they have turned their longstanding passion into a business: Marvelle. The brand combines the duo’s original prints and styling prowess to create beautiful, bespoke, harmonious spaces to live and work in. Each image is printed on archival cotton and professionally framed in Melbourne. Images are nostalgic and calming – think tonal landscapes and animals – with custom works available for individuals, stylists and businesses. Marvelle will be at The Finders Keepers and The Big Design Markets with 50% off floor stock, meaning you can score a massive 1000mm x 1000mm framed print for a tiny $480. Winning.
