Buffalo Bird


Buffalo Bird is a creative collaboration between artist Skye Gibson and custom furniture designer Laurie Birt.

Skye’s hand-drawn pen and watercolour designs are inspired by the vibrant colours and textures observed in nature and her love of patterns and fine detail. Each work begins with a simple grid, which is gradually added to with intricate layers of symmetrical geometry, feathery lines and bright contrasting colours.

For Skye, the process of creating pieces with such intricate detail is a meditative practice that instils a wonderful sense of calmness. The series of limited edition giclée prints in Creative Village Newcastle involved close collaboration with a professional photographer and artist print producer to translate the original artworks into digital format, a lengthy process to ensure that the integrity of the original artworks is preserved.

Each work is printed with artist quality ink on 300gsm archival bamboo paper. The prints in the store are framed in raw timber but each print is also available unframed or custom framed.
