Art has been found to reduce our stress levels, as well as to help improve our mood. Displayed in a home, art can also add personality, showing your visitors what you find visually appealing.

If you’re keen to kickstart your home art collection or even to add it, look no further than this edit of Australian-based artists. From a proud Bundjalung woman producing art that shares stories of her culture in a modern way, to an artist exploring life through the lens of architecture, these are the Australian artists with works we think are worth adorning your walls.

Holly Sanders

Holly Sanders is a Bundjalung woman raised on the North Coast of NSW but now based on the South Coast where she creates and teaches contemporary Aboriginal art. Her aim with her pieces is to share her stories, culture, and Country in a modern way.

You can buy her work framed or unframed online, or commission a one-of-a-kind piece with a personalised story in a style, colour palette and canvas size of your choosing.

Britty Flynn

Britty Flynn is a Melbourne-based artist, known for her colourful paintings, many of which feature phrases, like “All you need is… love”, “Let’s get silly” and “Margaritas at sunset”. She says her work is a representation of her work when she’s feeling free in the present moment.
