A New Artist Emerges from Blue Mountains!

Rosemarie Coggins is an EXCELLENT artist who draws animals with just familiarity that you know she’s spent heaps of time with them. This is one of them. (Prints might be available, pricing, contact me)

Lily is an adorable rat with hair (as opposed to fur). She’s grey, and very lovable. Not my favourite of pets since it’s a … rodent. But still!

The Woman behind the Blog

Welcome to my blog! It’s such a pleasure having you here.

What are you inspired by? I am inspired by beautiful and bright interiors, fabric, furniture, pinks, yellows, greens, chairs, china, trees, chocolate, peonies, hydrangeas, cherry blossoms, roses and rhubarb with cream.

Friends and family call me drey (pronounced 'dree'... short for Audrey) and I can often be found zipping through op-shops and vintage stores in the Blue Mountains, NSW, Australia.
