Natalie Ryan's design studio is located in an old farmhouse with a traditional iron lace clad veranda, surrounded by a rambling country garden first planted by my great grandparents in the early 1900's. Every Meander design is painted from life, so any gaps in the garden beds are slowly being filled up with native plantings (and future subject matter) such as Kangaroo Paws, Wattles, Boronias, Banksias and Grevilleas. My online portfolio can be viewed at www.natalieryan.com.au and for any freelance textile design / illustration enquiries please drop me a line at: natalie@meanderdesigns.com.au

Postscript 1

Giclee derives from the French word meaning to squirt and is pronounced Zee-Clay and refers to a high quality digital print.

Postscript 2

I have learnt that we have two artists in Victoria with the name Natalie Ryan. The other Natalie Ryan explores themes that surround the aesthetic representation of the cadaver and natural sciences throughout Western history and their inclusion in contemporary art. (natalieryan.net) Maybe I'll tackle this artist a little later.
