SUPPORT LIVING ARTISTS & COLLECT A LITTLE GEM AT THE 2016 LINDEN POSTCARD SHOW! > UNTIL 29 January 2017
> CAMERON McGREGOR
Cameron McGregor has entered work into the Linden Postcard Show for a number of years.
This year, Cameron submitted a beautiful series of oil paintings depicting Australian parrots, as immortalised by Tuckfield’s Tea Australiana Birds Series collector cards that appeared in packs of the popular Australian tea in the 1950’s.
A special childhood memory returned to Cameron when he discovered a set of the Tuckfield’s collector cards in an antique store in Bendigo a few years ago. He remembered attending his neighbour’s home with his mother. While his mother and their neighbour shared a cuppa, his neighbour kindly entertained young Cameron with a collection of the Tuckfield’s bird cards.
Cameron enjoys painting birds, especially parrots, as he sees that their often-bright colours make them “exclamation points against the landscape”.
One of Cameron’s beautiful artworks was chosen by Linden Postcard Show sponsor Avant Card to become a free postcard available at Avant Card postcard stands everywhere!

> MICHELLE EATTELL
Michelle Eattell has submitted three digital compositions to this year’ show.
Her colourful abstract works are all actually made using a variety of smartphone apps!
Michelle leads a busy professional life, but she didn’t want to let that stop her from creating her own artworks. Michelle’s works are a testament to her innovation and dedication!
Michelle attended the Young Ambassador’s Postcard Show Collector’s Preview event and won a $100 framing voucher from Linden Postcard Show sponsor Omnus Framing!
We know that Michelle will put this to very good use.
> CHUENCHONNANEE THONGSONTHI
Chuenchonnanee Thongsonthi has submitted a delightful homage to our beautiful gallery spaces for this years Linden Postcard Show.
Her work includes a medium unique to this artist – come in and see if you can guess what it is!
> JOY IVILL
Renowned Sydney artist Joy Ivill is known for her cheeky contemporary needlework and painted artworks which celebrate often intimate and personal moments in the artist’s life.
Joy entered the Linden Postcard Show because “the idea of making a small format painting appealed to me greatly… I will enter again next year. I found the entries to be of a very high standard.”
You can find out more about Joy’s work at her website:
