We have just started selling Chalk Paint® and my other products in Australia and New Zealand so I was in Melbourne and Sydney last week training the eight new stockists we have. 
And what a great bunch they were!  

Colours & Iron Lace

I was born in Sydney on the harbour in Cremorne and then later lived about 30 minutes north of Sydney until I was 10 years old, when my family took me kicking and screaming to live in England.
Early memories make a lasting impression. I remember well the old buildings, ironwork and lovely verandahs. 

Iron Lace is the beautiful iron work decorating the houses of Australia

Burgundy Red & Aubusson Blue

Victorian colours picking out the different parts of the decoration

I remember old houses like this in Sydney - green and cream 
Old Ochre 
Primer Red

I am so very thrilled that my paint is now in Australia & New Zealand - coming home!  
If you want to know who the stockists are visit my web site below.

  2. This is beautiful. Really enjoyed catching up with your blog. What a great painting. There were so many amazing views - I could have painted many more too.

  3. Congratulations on expanding to Australia and New Zealand, how exciting. I am having so much fun experimenting with your paints. This week I have painted, wood, brass, glass, felt and leather. Nothing is safe now, I am painting everything, and having an amazing time. Your products are not sold where I live so I have to travel 4 hours to get it, but it is worth it. Don't know how I managed without your chalk paint before, it has opened up a whole new world to me. thank you Tobey

  4. I just know that OZ and NZ must be over the moon now they can buy your paint locally.................Sydney IS a wonderful city, can imagine any child kicking and screaming when told they were moving to rainy old England!! Being English though I'm glad you settled in OK - I was in Sydney and other OZ towns last year and would love to spend more time there some day.

    Congratulations Annie - worldwide ASCP!!!

    Mary - (now in North Carolina - and can buy paint from The Two Old Birds just up the street - I'm spoiled!).

  5. I am so excited to find your paints here in Sydney.
    I bought some this week and can't wait to begin my first project!
    We have a Victorian terrace and I know it will be transformed with your gorgeous paints:)
    Thank you:)

  6. Decals work better if you apply them to a gloss surface instead of a flat one.

  7. I've noticed on your Australasia site you don't have any stockists in Victoria, is there any chance this will change soon?
