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.
