Ekko is an eastern rosella who lives with his human companion in Western Australia. Eastern rosella’s are common in my neighbourhood, but they aren’t usually found in WA. So when they asked me to paint a portrait of Ekko, I was thrilled!

This is one of the largest sized commissions I’ve done, and I had so much fun squeezing loads of detail in all that extra space! Ekko is perched on outlines of actual leaves from trees where eastern rosellas hang out in my garden, on a stormy coloured egg-shaped background, nestled amongst his favourite blossom-foods.

It is now also available as a lovely big greeting card at Lalaland!
