About

At the Laughing Bird Print Studio we are enamoured with the magnificent World Heritage listed Australian bush environment on our doorstep, drawing and developing intricate prints which pay tribute to the complex and unique ecology of the Australian wilderness. For print inspiration we take a hike.

In studio we enjoy traditional printmaking methods, using our hands and a squeege to create each and every print. 

We source a mix of linen, canvas, paper and wooden surfaces for our prints, and stitch and construct locally within the Blue Mountain’s.

We have been around here for a while now, establishing in 2006 when printmaker Freedom Wilson first arrived in the Blue Mountain’s from Central Australia, put on her boots and went walking through the incredible flowering Waratah’s of October's bush. Prints are ideveloped by drawing experience, animals that have watched us watching them, places that we have stopped to picnic, fallen leaves, wildflowers, and beautiful bouquets of native flowers from amazing local florists.

We silk screen print for a handful of gorgeous stores listed below, art projects, exhibitions and wonderful design markets. Instagram is our favourite way of documenting current projects, upcoming events and what we are most looking forward to.

Thanks so much for visiting and all the very best,
Freedom
