Hansby Design creates modern, fun and colourful wildlife art. Celebrating the unique and endangered birds and animals of New Zealand, Australia and the world, in contemporary hand-drawn images and eco wooden accessories. All artwork is designed by Cathy and feature iconic and unique species, her engaging images capture the character of the animal with personality and attitude. Her style is refined and minimal, using bold, colourful tones of block colour.
It all begins with an image, an Art Print, then develops into a range of eco products. Hansby Design products evolved in reaction to the growing abundance of plastic gift accessories. Influenced by the Zero Waste movement, Hansby Design recognised the need for natural gift products, to offer visitors and locals an alternative.
All prints are printed and framed in New Zealand, by two local businesses partners. Art Prints are made to order, reducing the need to carry excess stock. The image is printed directly onto the wood without the need for plastic transfer or laminate.
Included with each print is a bio about the featured animal to share their story, encouraging people to learn, admire and value the species.
