Beautiful illustrations by Kimberley of @mcmurtrie_illustrations. It’s crazy to think how long each of these illustrations takes her to do, all by using lead and coloured pencils. 💖💖💖 but there’s no work for us at all, all we have to do is select the size!! Kimberley’s incredible designs are available on our website. Just tap to take you straight there.......

Hellooo everyone. I’m finally back home. And that means getting our studio all back together again ready for you guys to visit anytime you like! Give me a couple of days and I’ll get it looking like the pics attached, swipe left. It also means our travelling for the 2018/19 season has come to an end.......until next season !! I use the winter months to catch up on EVERYTHING here that is desperately in need of some TLC (which is A LOT 🤪) and work on the website and the social media side of things. I even hope to squeeze in some training, yes I definitely need it, everything in the online world is changing so rapidly 🤪 I’m a one woman show and it’s certainly a challenge keeping up with the digital side of business. 🙈 What else for Green Door Decor? Well......we start working through some discontinued and clearance items and offering some great bargains to you. Which gives me the chance to introduce new amazing Aussie artists to our store. So please do watch this space, and also send me a message if you have any suitable suggestions of artwork/small creative gift lines that would suit our store. I’m happy to have a look. Our popular earring range will also be photographed and added to the website soon. I know many of you have been waiting for these. You can always view in our studio too. And we will start researching and booking in new events for next season. I know it will come around quicker than expected. So if you’re still with me, thanks for reading and thanks always for your continued support. Even the likes and comments on my posts make this small business mumma very happy 😘😘 As always, please inbox me if you have any queries re availability of prints, postage prices or to make an appt to visit the studio. Or browse our online store at www.greendoordecor.com.au (link in bio) (and afterpay is also available on there). Much love Annie xx

Super happy with this recent custom drawing for one of my clients. This Waratah completes a series of Native Australian flora which I’ve been working on for them. So in love with its hot pink colour pallet and intricate details!

Without you, I wouldn’t be able to do what I love. So, as we say goodbye to 2018 and hello to 2019, I wanted to give back to you in the best way I know how… through illustration. 🖤

They say eyes are the window to the soul so drawing attention to the eyes in this piece was essential. Highland cows are known for their hairy fur and magnificent horns but for this piece it’s all about that distinct facial expression. Animals have a special way of resonating with people and this piece is no exception 🖤 ——— Is anybody else obsessed with this sketch as much as me? So much love and detail went into this piece and I’m beyond thrilled that you guys as loving Harry the highland cow too! ——— Originally illustrated by hand and proudly printed in South Australia.

Introducing the final illustration to the 2018 Christmas collection ‘Santa’s Little Helper’. Hand drawn with love and the perfect accompaniment to your Christmas gifts! __________ Santa’s Little Helper: ‘As you’d expect, Christmas can get quite busy for Santa. There are lists to be checked, presents to be wrapped, and gifts to be delivered. With the worlds’ population’s growing faster than ever, it’s unfair to expect Santa and his elves to receive no extra help right? So, Santa decided to seek help from only the best, a pint sized, adorable kitten named Rosy. Rosy does everything, gift wrapping, toy sorting, she even helps Santa drink the extra milk left out from the children. So, keep an eye out for Rosy this Christmas as you may catch a glimpse of her hiding in Santa’s boot.’ ———— Shop online at www.mcmurtrieillustrations.com or come visit me this Sunday 4.30pm - 8.30pm at @glenelgsunsetmarkets • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #christmasiscoming #3weekstillchristmas #christmascards #shopsmall #shoplocal #supportsmallbusiness #merrychristmas #christmascat #catsofinatagram #catstagram #cats_of_instagram #catlover #catillustration #catdrawing #catcards #adelaideartist #pencilartist #prismacolor #handdrawns #handdrawings #drawnwithlove #artistoninstagram #artsy #art_spotlight #adelaideart #madeinsa #ichoosesa #glenelgsunsetmarkets at Adelaide, South Australia

Under the Mistletoe’ - ‘Twas the night before Christmas, two birds were sitting in a tree, hopefully soon to be K.I.S.S.I.N.G.

Hello and happy Tuesday! Around a month ago I took part in my first photoshoot. The ladies from @thestudiomelbourne captured so many stunning photos of my art and also this happy snap featuring yours truly! Feeling out of my comfort zone, I knew having this photo was important. I love seeing others on social media etc stand proudly with their work (instead of behind it) so I thought it was time I try and do the same... more often anyway. ✨ Although I love my business and pretty much eat, sleep and breath it, I am so much more than just what I do. I’m an awkward, fun loving woman, who isn’t afraid of hard work. I could eat haloumi until I burst and can function pretty well (I think) on little to no sleep due to my high nighttime productivity levels. I’m addicted to my phone, coffee, love a good podcast and believe it or not I may have found pencil shavings in my bed sheets more than once. This. is. me. 👋🏼 Thank you for choosing to be a part of this little community. It brings me so much happiness knowing that I can comfortably share my business journey and my passion to illustrate, with such a supportive audience. ❤️ If there’s anything more I can share, or if there’s anything else you’d like to know about me or what I do please just let me know xx • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #thisisme #artist #illustrator #designer #graphicdesigner #sister #daughter #friend #girlfriend #partner #lover #worker #entrepreneur #smallbusinessowner #businessowner #girlboss #lady #woman #feminist #female #happy #funloving #blonde #funny #positive #gogetter #australian #southaustralian #adelaidian at Adelaide, South Australia

‘Aerodynamically, the bumble bee shouldn’t be able to fly, but the bumble bee doesn’t know it so it goes on flying anyway.’ - Mary Kay Ash 🐝 How about a little motivation for your Wednesday! What would you do if you knew you couldn’t fail? I too believe that doubt kills more dreams than failure ever will. This thought process really resonates with me and is suggested in ‘Winging it’ a seriously awesome book by @emmaisaacs 🌸 Lately I’m trying to make a conservative effort to stay positive in all facets of my life, but especially business. Grabbing opportunities with both hands and trying not to look back. Not always easy I know but by sharing these thoughts on social media I think really does help. It also keeps me responsible to practice what I preach. So I hope this message inspires you today also! ✨ - Stunning imagery from the lovely @jenandjennifer • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #Wednesdayinspo #bumblebee #dontfearfailure #keepgoing #staypositive #peony #rose #bee #wingingit #businessbooks #BusinessChicks #entrepreneur #entrepreneurmindset #entrepreneurlife #quotesoftheday #inspiration #motivation #Wednesdaymotivation #adelaideartist #artistlife #illustrator #creative #handmademovement #inspo at Adelaide, South Australia

Beautiful testimonial from my most recent client Donny for a special custom illustration:
🌸
‘I was so thrilled to receive one of Kimberley’s hand drawn illustrations as a gift that I asked her to do a very special drawing of my husband and I, taken from a photograph. The amount of detail in the drawing is awesome and an exact copy from our photograph… it brought a tear to my eye. I thoroughly recommend everyone considers Kimberley for their corporate, personal and special gifts. You will be more than ecstatic with the results.’ 💕 Thank you so much for those lovely word’s Donny, it was an absolute pleasure creating this piece for you and your husband and I’m so happy you love it.

Recent custom pet portrait for a beautiful and very patient customer, Alannah, who gave me the pleasure of sketching their gorgeous dog ‘Murphy’. I mean what a cutie! This made a beautiful Mother’s Day gift so I’m told, and her mum loved it! Yay! 😍 I know most of us have a special fur ball in our lives and custom pieces like this make beautiful gifts. This is why I LOVE doing what I do! So rewarding and I’m very happy I can provide a unique service like this to people I don’t even know. All the warm and fuzzy feelings for your Tuesday morning ☺️🐶 • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #petportrait #art #artist #artwork #artoftheday #petlover #dogsofinstagram #dogsofinsta #dogstagram #staffordshirebullterrier #staffy #staffordshireterrier #staffe #staffies #staffords #staffy_daily #drawing #adelaideartist #staffy_world #staffygram #sketch #illustration #flatlayforever #flatlayflowers #flatlaystyle #proteas #prismacolor #pencilartist #madeinsa at South Australia

Happy Mother’s Day to all the gorgeous mums out there... especially mine 😘 Seriously what would we do without them? If you’d like to share this love with your mum today as well, than why not comment/tag or share this post 💕 I’d like to personally thank my mum today for everything she does for me, no matter how big or small I don’t know where I would be in my life without you. Also your cooking will never go unappreciated 😉 Love you! ❤️ Also one final little shout out to my beautiful friend @lavonne27 who is celebrating her very first Mother’s Day! I can’t wait to meet little bubs when she finally arrives, hope you’re having a great day ☺️🤰🏼 • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #mothersday #mothers #mum #firstmothersday #mothers_day #mothers #motherslove #mothersday2018 #iloveyoumum #ily #rose #pinkroses #mumsfavourite #peonies #handrawn #art #design #illustration #quoteoftheday #drawing #sketch #roses #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #flowerlovers #flowerstyles_gf #flowers_earth #artoftheday at Adelaide, South Australia

I’m almost done guys!!!! 🙌🏼 The end is near so... what should I name this new piece? I’d LOVE to know if you have any suggestions👇🏼 And if anyone was wondering... no, I haven’t filled in that small unfinished section in the middle... because well I clearly have commitment issues... but seriously I just can’t make up my mind so I’m leaving it to the very end haha. ✍🏼 Also some good news, as this picture was taken just over a week ago, I’m actually a lot further along than what you see now. But this is the last progress post before I launch the final product! Definitely not a sprint finish but I CANT WAIT to reveal the final illustration very soon. So stay tuned!!! 🌸 • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #wip #floralbouquet #comment #flowers #flowersketch #art #artwork #artist #illustrator #drawing #progress #homedecor #decor #pencilartist #wallart #interior123 #interiordecor #interiordesign #interiorlovers #artoftheday #roses #flowerstagram #flowersofinstagram #flowerlovers #flowerstyles_gf #flowers_earth #davidaustinroses #peoniesaremyfavorite at Adelaide, South Australia

LEST WE FORGET. This year I wanted to really take some time and truly reflect about the importance of Anzac day so I knew, for me there was no better way of doing this than to draw. I do a lot of my thinking when I illustrate and during this process this week I can honestly say that I did have the brave soldiers, both past and present in the forefront of my mind. I chose to sketch two beautiful poppies as they resonate with me most. It’s amazing how something so simple but so delicate can mean so much today. I dedicate this illustration ‘Lest we forget’ to all the soldiers who have sacrificed their lives for the sake our country and to the families who have lost their loved ones. We will remember them. at South Australia

This weeks colab with the gorgeous @lovechloejane featuring the stunning ‘Floral Release’ print (now available on my website www.mcmurtrieillustrations.com).✨ Chloe has a way of making any space feel like magic, her bright personality shines through her work in more ways than one and she’s a legend to work with. And well we’ve lived in the same neighbourhood for most of our lives and have only connected recently... but that’s Adelaide for you! So happy with the outcome of this collaboration, what beautiful and unique stylising. Do you agree? 🌸✨ at Adelaide, South Australia

@mcmurtrie_illustrations

Comparison. It can make you or break you and it’s something I honestly struggle with. I try to remind myself that there is absolutely no point in comparing my work or business to others because my journey will always be different, and that’s absolutely fine. ✨ How can I compare my almost 2 year business journey to someone else’s 8 year one. I only work part time on my business and I’m comparing my productivity to others who work full time and so the list continues. 💛 By all means have idols, goals and challenge yourself but don’t lose yourself. People forget that we paint the picture which we want the world to see, however our reality may be different. ✨ So this is my message to you. Take a breath, appreciate and enjoy YOUR journey and the next time you compare really think about whether you’re being fair on yourself. 💛 Do you struggle with comparison too? I’d love to know!👇🏼 at Adelaide, South Australia

The lovely ‘Jane’ print looking amazing! Styled beautifully by my gorgeous friend @inspire_decor_designs Jane will be available tomorrow at @themakersandshakers or follow the link in my profile to shop! On another note, we all know how difficult it can be to create a community and build a following on social media especially when you’ve just started a business. So do YOURSELF a favour and go check out this amazing interior stylist page @inspire_decor_designs. Kearra has such a talent and I honestly believe this is what she was meant to do. And well who doesn’t love seeing gorgeous soft furnishings pop up on their feed... yep I know you love it. So go check her out 💕 • • • #mcmurtrieillustrations #inspire_decor_designs #inspiredecordesigns #jane #horselovers #horsesofinstagram #vets #homedecor #picoftheday #loungeroom #hbmystyle #inspire_me_home_decor #interior4inspo #interior4all #apartmentherapy #houseandhome #handrawn #madeinsa #swish #interiorstylist #wildlife #art instahome #nordicliving #interior2you #pencilartist #interiordesire #animalsaddict #animalsofig

I took a short break from this beauty to work on some other illustration work this week, hence why my progress has been slow. However I have now officially hit the other side of the bouquet and can see the light at the end of the tunnel! Also I feel as though this side of the sketch is some how more detailed... so wish me good luck haha 🌸

@mcmurtrie_illustrations

So excited to announce that I have been collaborating with @lalalandshop to create a collection of greeting cards which are now available AUSTRALIA WIDE! I actually stumbled across this card in the Rundle Place Newsagent a few days ago. Getting my illustrations published is a whole new kind of crazy and seeing my work in a different but exciting new form is so cool. So if you haven’t, go check out La La Land’s awesome range of greeting cards, wrapping paper etc and support Australia and international artists today! 🌸

🌻Happy International Womens Day 💁🏼there are sooo many women in my personal and business life that I owe the absolute world to. @tianawouldratherbefishing you are 100% one of them, I have no idea where I'd be without you! But I also have the absolute pleasure of having this chick in my life, @mcmurtrie_illustrations 🌻 forever making me actually get things done, challenging the way I see everything on social media, giving me a designers point of view on my creations and a forever positive and uplifting attitude towards life owning our own businesses. Meanwhile pumping out HOURS of incredibly detailed illustrations...If it wasn't for you, I never would have ordered the shed for my workshop, I wouldn't know what podcasts are, I wouldn't be doing @sayes_bsa and I probably would have missed at least one class by now. I don't know how you do it but THANK YOU 💜 at Alpha Box & Dice

I am officially half way through... phew! Three and a half weeks and about 85-100 hours work in it so far. This illustration just fits on A1 sized paper (85x60cm) for those of you who have been asking. Prices will be announced once I finish lovelies. Also a BIG thanks to everyone who has sent me messages or comments throughout this piece so far, it’s SO nice to hear and makes the tough times that much easier! On that note I better get started on the next 100 hours of drawing ahead... 😂👊🏼
