“I’ve loved Auntie Betty’s artwork since I was first introduced to it several years ago, and I am always excited to see new pieces and designs. As someone who loves nature, the beautiful details of her illustrations never fail to make me happy! The set of native flora and fauna greeting cards made lovely Christmas cards for friends and family. The quality of the cards was excellent, they arrived very promptly, and were carefully packaged to arrive in pristine condition. I very much look forward to my next purchase!”

''I couldn’t be happier with the gorgeous set of 4 cards I ordered. They are beautifully printed, each comes with a lovely envelope and they were sent in a timely fashion once ordered. The cards are so beautiful that I think I will frame them rather than parting with them. Thank you, Betty, they are gorgeous!                            Lise H.

I'm working on two projects with Auntie Betty and we have such fun. Her artistic style and attention to detail speak for themselves but her cooperative and upbeat nature, along with her quick work and willingness to adapt, make Auntie Betty a joy to have as a collaborative partner.


"I bought 3 cards to give to my loved ones who share a love of birds. I feel there is love and appreciation for our native wildlife and environment through Auntie Betty's artwork and business - they arrived in biodegradable and recycled packaging. They were also sent and arrived promptly - perfect for those fast-approaching celebrations!"

"I purchased a fantail card and was extremely happy with the quality of the card and how beautifully it was presented. I couldn't actually bring myself to write in it, so instead I ended up framing it. The process of getting it was easy and straightforward - being in Christchurch, I particularly appreciate having the pick up option in Christchurch."
