Melina Martin is a New Zealand artist based in Wellington.

Her designs are created from beautiful drawings of plants and wildlife native to New Zealand.

Her tea towels hand screen printed on 100% unbleached cotton with water-based textile ink.

Her aim is to 'create functional beauty and hopefully foster pride and awareness of our beautiful, fragile Aotearoa'.

(Many people frame these tea towels or make them into cushion covers as the designs are so beautiful.)
