The Secret Garden | Study on Paper #1

ORIGINAL ARTWORK on canvas paper


Title: Study on Paper #1
The Secret Garden Collection

24cm x 32cm on canvas paper (a thick textured card, resembling the texture of canvas) – includes a small 1cm white border

In preparation for The Secret Garden Collection, I have painted a few smaller studies on canvas paper which make lovely small works for framing. By default this comes to you unframed, however I can arrange custom framing for you if you would prefer.

The Secret Garden is a children’s book written by Frances Hodgson Burnett and published in 1911.  It has also been adapted for screen, television and stage.
Its a tale  of physical and spiritual healing through nature and its effects on the human spirit. Young Mary discovers this lost, secret, forbidden and  forlorn garden, which she seeks to restore, and it has a transforming effect on her and her two friends
The Secret Garden collection reflects what I envisage when I picture the discovery of the rambling, overgrown garden, wild with undisturbed colour and the freedom to grow wild and untouched.



Painted with acrylic on canvas paper (approx 300gsm) and other mixed media if noted above.

The Ready to Frame section contains original artwork that is either on flat unstretched canvas, or canvas paper (no frame)- which is a heavy durable paper specifically produced to replicate the texture of canvas.

Generally these are smaller pieces that are easy to ship and make great gifts, whilst making original art more affordable.  They are beautifully packaged: Art on paper is presented on a sturdy foam core board, a shiny cello wrapping and cute sticker, art of paper is rolled and gift wrapped.

Great for collectors, they make a great gallery wall, where you can place multiple pieces together.

Frame the piece when you are ready, most pieces will fit into a standard frame, or I am happy to have it professionally framed for you prior to posting - just message me for a quote.


FREE Shipping Worldwide for all orders over $200.  Please note that during sales, products may take up to 7 days to ship.

FOR SHIPPING OUTSIDE OF AUSTRALIA: The artwork will be carefully shipped as a rolled canvas in sturdy mailer tube to anywhere in the world for free.

Notes about sizing: Images in scenes are not necessarily to scale and the size of the furniture may not match yours.  Please rely on the measurements given when selecting art to assess how it may look with your furniture.  The measurements are accurate to within a few cms and vary with framing options.  For precise measurements or advice, please contact me - I'm always happy to help!
