What People Say

Anica creates affordable Australian watercolour art and nothing gives her more joy, than happy collectors connecting with her work. Some have written a few words and allowed them to be shared here with you.

The Curly Gum leaf
The Curly Gumleaf

We have just moved into our brand new home, which we have lovingly
designed and built over a period of 4 years.   I was looking for an original
painting depicting gum leaves to mirror the tall gum trees which we look out
on from our windows.

Whilst looking through many paintings, your artwork captured my attention
with your brilliant use of authentic bush colours in watercolour as well as
the beautiful detail and composition.

Your lovely piece will now have pride of place in our new Guest Room.
Thank you also for your handwritten note and the Certificate of
Authenticity.  It is very special to have a lovingly painted and inspired
artwork by such a talented Australian artist in our home.” Marita

Willy Wagtail

Well, what can I say other than, “What superb talent you have!” I adore Willy Wagtail and the way you’ve used the background to blend both paintings together is so cleverly artistic.

I write books for my grandchildren and always include on the back page of each book that they’ve been published by Kookaburra Wagtail Press (me). So it seems fitting that I now have my Kookaburra Wagtail Triptych. The cheeky over the shoulder look from Willy is just right … saying, “Soulmates.”

Thank you for your oh so lovely kookaburra card ‘n words as well, thoughtful once again.

Best wishes to you Anica, it must be wonderful to have talents that make a lot of people happy. May the Blue Bird of Happiness settle on your shoulder😊

I thought I'd drop you a message to say Thank you! I just received your beautiful painting in great condition and I love it! My daughter likes it too. She didn't know I bought it until now. When I decide on a frame and have it on my wall, I will take a photo and send it to you. Best regards,

I absolutely love my Tui Bird, I truly could not be happier and the option to have the painting framed was a good one because it sets the artwork off beautifully.

Hi Anne! 

I love my man. He's powerful and supportive. He's the first image I see when I wake.

 

"Anne from Anica Art is a very talented artist. Her ability to capture and project the 'soul' of her artwork is a unique skill. I have purchased a few of her paintings now love every one as they speak from within."

Coming into Batlow
Coming Into Batlow

Today, I picked up this piece from the framer's. It's called "Coming into Batlow" and is by talented NSW artist Anica Amphlett. I bought this as a present for my friend. Batlow is very special to her as it is the town where her grandmother grew up. This scene of driving into town evokes beautiful and special memories for her that she is now reminded of every time she looks at this painting. Thank you, Anica

The painting arrived today and I love it! Most paintings nowadays look like they were just copied from photographs, but your paintings have spontaneity, movement, atmosphere and feeling!

I finally got some time alone and was able to open the mailing tube (the custom-made cap worked perfectly).  The painting is absolutely GORGEOUS!  It’s exactly what I hoped for and more!  I can’t wait to give it to Mark on our last day in Australia – coming up in just two weeks.  The very kind note you attached was also a special touch!

Thank you, thank you!  😊,

Hi Anne! 

It has arrived! The painting is glorious. I absolutely love it! It represents the hope and inspiration I feel about this newest chapter of my life, but isn’t too showy (if you know what I mean). It feels very
grounded, and grounded in the love of a place which means so much to me. I can’t thank you enough.

Rebecca
