Vanessa Lewis, Newcastle's own 'Apothecary Artist'

At Honest Paper we are particularly proud of the commitment to supporting Australian brands. We don't attend trade shows, instead, we curate our range by exploring local markets and small boutique online suppliers.

One of our favourites is local talent, Apothecary Artist.

There's something really wonderful about an artwork reproducing itself. These prints are top quality artworks in their own right. Printed by a Master Printer, here in Newcastle, with the kind of passion you find in an artisan workshop. The paper stock is a crisp white, 330gsm and is archival. They are Vercotype prints and there's a deliciously rich, embossed like ink surface. Printed in limited editions, they are signed and numbered. The prints are then lovingly hand gilded or painted with watercolour.

Based here Newcastle in Australia, Vanessa draws and paints, studies, researches and explores the recipes and techniques once used by artists throughout the centuries. Sometimes feeling more like a chef than a modern day painter, she works with deliciously luscious ingredients; eggs, vodka, walnuts, pomegranates... and more.


"Every day in the studio is an exhilarating learning experience, as I explore the chemistry, the botanics of painting and turn it into new art" - Vanessa Lewis, @apothecaryartist
