We Publish Beautiful Australian Art Cards
From an idyllic rural setting in the historic Central Victorian Goldfields we design and distribute a unique and colourful collection of finest quality Original Australian Art Cards, 'Little Gems' Square Notecards, and a wide range of gorgeous glossy Art Bookmarks.
Also a large range of beautiful 'Occasions' Greeting Cards and 'Occasions' Notecards – "perfect for many of life's special occasions".
And just released 'Art To Make you Smile' – beguiling Bunnies and adorable Doggies, Sheep, Cats, Chooks, goofy Goats, Polar Bears, a Panda and the cutest Little Aussie Koalas will delight with their adorable facial expressions.
Our creative and passionate production team design and print products featuring a wide variety of original Australian art, generously offered to us by many talented artists and regional art galleries.
Products are sustainably manufactured to the highest standards – faithfully showcasing the work of many hundreds of Australian artists working in different mediums, with a huge variety of artistic styles.
Most importantly, sales of our uniquely Australian products directly benefit the many generous artists and galleries involved in our innovative co-operative art publishing project.
Australian Art & Images was started in 1991 by Jenifer Simmonds, with the specific aim of publishing and distributing an unique range of finest quality Australian Art Cards to showcase the original work of many leading contemporary Australian artists.
With the launch of Art Publishing in 2000, this concept was expanded to enable us to work in close collaboration with Australian artists and major regional art galleries. To assist them self-publish their work as finest quality Art Cards, Art Prints, Bookmarks and other art-related products.
Since we commenced publishing original Australian art in 1991, the business has outgrown six warehouses. Until at the end of 2007 we finally moved into our own spacious, purpose-built warehouse on the Wesley Hill Business Park in Castlemaine.
The warehouse includes a white-walled, light-filled Packing Room Art Gallery, which is decorated with a colourful collection of paintings – including original artwork for some of our most popular cards.
We welcome trade buyers to visit the warehouse by appointment.
Art Publishing / Australian Art & Images respectfully acknowledge the Dja Dja Wurrung people of the Kulin nation as the Traditional Owners of the land on which Castlemaine has been established.
