Nura’s very first collection launched in June 2017, celebrating the beautiful native flora of Australia. All three fabric prints began as an original watercolour piece created exclusively for Nura by two very talented Australian artists. These artworks were then extracted and created in to a repetitive print suitable for textile printing.
The three prints available in this collection are The Banksia, The Eucalypt and The Lilly Pilly.

Shipra trained for 5 years at a premier art institute, has a Degree in Fine Arts and a Certificate IV in Training and Assessment.
She has worked as a Visual Merchandiser and Set Designer for many years and has gained extensive experience in Store Planning and Graphic Art. Throughout this period, Shipra has continued her love for drawing and watercolor painting.
Over the years her works include detailed watercolor paintings, illustrations, participating and selling in several exhibitions and above all teaching watercolour and botanical art.
Her eye for detail and perseverance to translate it into her work has been consistent.
After moving to Australia a decade back, she lived in a beautiful townhouse and started painting the beautiful flora and fauna around her.
This, combined with her passion for watercolor painting, gave her the fuel to start her formal training after which she never looked back. Watercolour art is now her zeal and passion.

Mei is a Melbourne based freelance illustrator. She specialises in botanic art, beauty and fashion illustration. The art mediums Mei uses include watercolour, ink, gouache and coloured pencil. Mei loves English bulldogs, roller coasters and board games.
Mei has always loved art as far as she could remember. However, after finishing Year 12, she abandoned her paintbrushes to further her studies and career. 3 years ago, she decided to take a break from work and started painting again. A year later, she had her first gallery exhibition and all her artworks were sold! It was that very moment that made her realise that this could be the start of something bigger. And in 2015, Made on Sundays was founded, this was the best decision she had ever made.
