Regular price $220.00 Sale price $50.00
Grow Your Own depicts a young girl sitting amidst the produce from her abundant garden - she's holding a nest of eggs and is ready to pluck the eggplants growing beside her. I painted this to express my love for growing food, and its importance in our lives. As we aim to reduce effects of climate change, eating local is a crucial part of the effort. Nothing is more rewarding on the plate than ingredients fresh from our own gardens, watered and tended with love, tasting of sunshine. This painting celebrates growth.

I live in Melbourne, a city famous for its wonderful graffiti, which has inspired me all my life. I've taken this and sprayed in a similar style onto a piece of reclaimed wood. This piece is created using stencils I designed and cut by hand, acrylic paint and spray paint. I sign it with my ‘Fixie’ stamp on the front.

This piece is approximately A3 size and the wood is about 1cm thick. The sides of the salvaged wood are painted black, and a picture hanger attached to the back, so it's ready to hang without need for framing.

This piece is made to order, so while I will use the same colours and stencil, the actual details may vary. The size may vary slightly too, depending on the wood I find, as I avoid buying new timber for my artwork. Since I will need to find the right piece of wood and paint it, please allow 2-3 weeks for me to create your order.

Note: the colours or contrast shown on your computer screen may vary slightly from the actual artwork.
