Welcome to the studio of Minnie&Lou and Jacinta Payne Art!
Celebrating inspiration and joyous colour!
Fresh and modern original art and prints, as well as greeting cards and gift tags,
all made in Melbourne Australia.
Environmentally friendly practices are of utmost importance to us.
Our fine art prints are produced on high quality acid-free watercolour paper, made from post-consumer cotton-rag.
Archival pigment inks are used for colour-faithful longevity.
Greeting cards and gift tags printed on 100% recycled card stock.
All our packaging is either made from recycled materials, or reused from previous deliveries. We use genuine cellophane (which is compostable) or recycled tissue paper. We buy postage envelopes that are made from recycled paper, and we also have a stash of (as-new condition) 2nd hand envelopes we've been collecting at clear-out sales, op shops etc which we're using too. We're passionate about trying to do our bit for the planet!
We hope you enjoy browsing our collections.
Thanks for visiting, have a beautiful day! xx
About Jacinta Payne
My aim when creating art is to reflect the many horizons, vistas and micro-climates of this beautiful earth, to give a modern and abstract twist to an everyday vision.
My process: I like to use vivid colours to make exaggerated versions of the colour combinations seen in nature. My paintings are made up of many layers and can take days or weeks to complete. I usually have a few paintings in progress at once and move from one to another on any given day. I never usually know if I am going to finish a painting during a particular session, I just know all of a sudden that it needs no more, and is finished.
Background: I have been surrounded by art my whole life. In my early years my tuition and inspiration began with instruction from my father (Landscape/seascape/still life Artist Don Luck) and my brother (Australian Bird & Wildlife Artist James Luck) and so began an ever evolving journey that has led me to finally pursue my art dream.
