Saving Planet A

Unfortunately there is no planet B. 

So every little bit counts right?

I love this country, New Zealand and especially our beautiful city Dunedin and its coastlines.  It is a place we need to look after.  I am working hard to contribute to good business practices by reducing the use of plastics in my packaging.  I also support ehtically sourced materials and non toxic chemicals.  I am proudly also a beekeeper - helping thousands of tiny little bees work their magic to keep our environment ticking along.  All of the timber products are grown and milled on our farm in Brighton.  The honey and beeswax products are also made here.

The Studio

Starfish Photos | Design is located in Brighton, Dunedin, New Zealand.  I work from an old shearing shed.  There is a horse out the door called Coyote and the dogs Mack and Missy.

I stock a great range of uniquely interesting hand made stuff.  I am an aries so I change my mind a lot about what I might do today.  There is no mass productions and everything is designed and printed right here in sunny little Brighton.  I use professional quality printing equipment.  My framing studio is old school no electronics just good old fashioned reliable equipment.  Everything is proudly New Zealand made and lovingly finished.

Michele Newman

I am a tree hugger, bee keeper, artist, Aries and I am a maybe just a tiny little bit crazy.
