Let me introduce you to our 2019 ....
Under 30's Emerging Artist - Mi Nguyen!

Mi was our nominated Under 30's Emerging Artist during our 2019 - Australian Watercolour Muster and she flew into Brisbane to receive her award which was the Sponsorship from the Watercolour Society of Queensland Inc. to cover Mi's airfare and accommodation to enable her to travel to Italy for the International Watercolour Symposium - FabrianoInAcquarello - Italy 2020!

Sadly as we all know we didn't travel this year, however Mi has been working hard and put her 'Sponsorship' in the bank to travel next year if possible and if not to spend on further Art Studies to help her progress her career.

But this amazing young inspiring Artist has not sat back and let the current global environment stop her - she has been exploring her own creative genres and in the mix has created her own collection of commercially available cards!  Very quirky and fun - to share with family and friends for those moments in life where you want to say something special ............ we are proud to say you can buy this 1st Edition of cards from our Fish Lane Studios - on the Deck - 4 Edmondstone Street, South Brisbane Qld Australia!

If you are a retailer and would like to support Mi by including her cards in your card ... stock - please contact Mi directly via her Instagram  >>>> https://www.instagram.com/minguyenart/

Mi took a lot of effort to present her new venture in a sustainably source way - given this is one of her key platforms for the future of her Work - we appreciated the effort that she has gone to to source - recycled envelopes and environmentally friendly covers for her cards 🌞

Some fun images of Mi Nguyen's 1st Edition of Cards - hats off to the initiative of this amazing young Artist in tough times | Congrats to being our 1st Australian Under 30's Artist - for The Australian Watercolour Muster - 2019:

and her winning Australian Watercolour Muster - 2019 Entry - 'Flemington Bloom'
