Gumnut Magic is my magic…

I’m Louise Upshall, an artist and maker from Australia. I am currently sending down roots in the Blue Mountains and getting to know the colours of the local trees.

I’ve been eco-printing since 2012, inspired by India Flint’s beautiful books. Eco-printing is a practise that has given me so much:

A way to connect with the land around me.

A way to be creative that is earth-friendly and sustainable.

And the deep joy and magic of unwrapping each fabric bundle to reveal the colours and textures left by those particular leaves.

I love introducing people to this magic through my ebooks and workshops.
