About Gumnut Magic
Gumnut Magic is my magic…
I’m Louise Upshall, an artist and maker from Australia. I live on Darug and Gundungurra Country in the Blue Mountains.
I graduated from ANU School of Art in 2011 and I’ve been eco-printing since 2012. I was first inspired by India Flint’s beautiful books and have gone on to develop my own techniques for eco-printing on cotton, wool and paper.
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 bundle to reveal the colours and textures left by those particular leaves.
I love introducing people to this magic through my ebooks, ecourses and workshops.
