Iluka the Sacred Kingfisher Original framed artwork

Many of the birds and florals I paint are special to people because they are a little reminder of home. For me, I feel this about Kookaburras and so, the Kingfisher - from the same bird family with their gorgeous plumage in all of my favourite colours fall into my "I will paint them forever" category.

I've chosen the name Iluka for this little lady, with Indigenous origins - from the extinct Yaygir language this name means "by the sea".

She's a Sacred Kingfisher, and to me she embodies all that I love about living near the ocean. We are SO blessed to enjoy these stunning beaches we call our own, and quite frankly - I'm yet to visit another overseas that compares.

*Because I am a perfectionist, in full disclosure there is a small area of inconsistency in the finish of the varnish on the background of this piece (top left hand corner). The price reflects this. This is not a defect, rather an unfortunate thing that can sometimes happen when varnishing it is only noticeable when the light hits that spot on certain angles.


This artwork is painted with the highest quality materials on professional grade stretched canvas and finished with a durable gloss varnish. It has been professionally framed in a beautiful Tasmanian Oak hardwood floating frame with a stunning natural grain with a satin coated finish. The frame measures 5.5cm deep and is fully strung at the back ready to put straight onto your wall.

The framed artwork size is 80cm x 104cm and will be shipped in a custom box, via Star Track National premium courier straight to your door (WA or TAS may incur a surcharge).

Please allow up to 10 days to receive your artwork however shipping is generally within 2-5 days.

The artwork price includes framing and shipping.
