New look for local nursery

A stunning new mural has brought new life to a local nursery with a kaleidoscopic display of native wildlife lighting up a previously dull shed.

When Stoneman’s Nursery in Glenorchy sought a solution to redevelop its storage shed, an opportunity arose to brighten up the local business and showcase Tasmanian talent.

“We knew Tasmanian artist Jamin was the man for the job. He is kind, joyful and so artistically gifted,” co-owner and marketing manager Jo Stoneman said.

“Tassie is full of world-class creative talent. Small businesses have a great opportunity to collaborate with them and create a point of difference when competing with big corporations.

“Initiatives like this are a great way to benefit all of our communities.”

The mural took Jamin five days to complete and features local flora and fauna including a kangaroo paw, eastern spinebill, Tasmanian waratah, fagus, billy buttons, spotted pardalote, pepper berry and a honey bee.

“I can’t express enough what wonderful people the Stoneman’s crew are. I felt so welcome and it was an absolute joy creating this painting,” Jamin said.

The mural can be viewed at Stoneman’s Garden Centre, 94 Grove Road Glenorchy.
