Nikki and Duncan, from Streets of Perth, bought their amazing new home in November last year and asked me to come paint a custom mural to brighten up their outdoor tiki bar. We started stage one last year and on the weekend I came in and finished off stage two by adding Indi the cat and some wood paneling.

The wall originally had a large mosaic on it, but when the house changed hands the old owners took it with them and left a large yellow space to be filled. Nikki and Duncan wanted a trompe l’oeil beach scene with tropical elements to brighten up the space. Inspiration for the beach scene comes from my all time favourite beach, Emily Bay, from Norfolk Island, where I grew up and spent many happy days swimming as a kid.

Our model is the stunning Marina Martini and the cat is the princess of the house, Indi, the rag doll. If they had a pet Macaw it probably wouldn’t last long in a house with cats  Big thank you to Nikki and Duncan for being awesome hosts, Marina for being an awesome model and also to Mitch Low for being no. 1 best minion.
