About the Artist
This year, our spectacular Christmas packaging has been designed exclusively for us by the very talented local artist Kerry Evitts. This vibrant piece is included in Kerry's 2020 collection, which is inspired by the resilience and community spirit shown during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“My work is often described as ‘bright, bold and striking’,” she said. “They’re hugely inspired by the subconscious mind, nature, colour and the environment around us.
“My paintings express positivity, symbolising the power of the mind in choosing a positive outlook.”
Like everyone, Kerry was greatly impacted by the events of 2020. Challenges came thick and fast, firstly with the Australian bushfires and then of course, the COVID-19 pandemic. She found herself navigating the sudden and dramatic changes in how she lived, being in isolation, home-schooling her children and striving to stay hopeful during these times.
“I pulled on my art which has been the guided force of my hope and optimism, and I created my newest collection aptly named ‘2020’ which aims to spread a message of joy, hope and community,” Kerry said.
Drawing on the community is important to us - like our products and Kerry’s work, the gift boxes are made right here in Melbourne and we are excited to announce they are fully recyclable.
