rare pear studio

rare pear studio is based in the Central West of country NSW Australia. It is all the creation of me, Shani Nottingham, a creative lass, who loves illustration, watercolour, photography, collage, colour, thrifting, foraging and collecting. I am somewhat addicted to vignetting and Instagramming, cheese and dreaming. I love spots, stripes, and am partial to a big blue sky.  I also have a BLOG that you can link to here!

I have been named by Kidspot as one of Australia's Top online creatives for #voicesof2015, and am TOP3 Finalist in the Home and Wellbeing Category. Amazing!

My work is held in collections locally, nationally and internationally.

I completed a Visual Arts degree majoring in Photography, minor in plant and wildlife illustration about a zillion years ago, before setting off to see the world and pursue many adventures.

All my work is created in my home and studio in my lovely 100 year old house, surrounded by many years of accumulated things of beauty and whimsy, my garden and my crazy family.

As rare pear studio  I have  exhibitions, do markets, sell online and also do commissions large and small ... as well as teaching art and photography to big grown up kids and little kids too.

Soon  I hope rare pear studio will be introducing larger original artworks, as well as fine art prints. Even some up-cycled jewellery... Keep looking as I update and restock with fresh new work, and new ranges of  goodies.

All rare pear works are aimed at making your heart happy!

Thanks for stopping by, and an even BIGGER THANK YOU if you made a purchase!
