Tog & Pini is the name on the label, but Clare Dunstan is the artist behind the scenes. Living in a bushy suburb in North East Melbourne, Clare works from her home surrounded by her family and a large variety of pets. These provide endless subject matter for her work. Specialising in watercolour interpretations of animals, Clare’s work is full of whimsical imagination. It invites you into a world of fanciful characters, and beautiful stories.
“I love to see the smiles on peoples faces as they look at my creations. That is my aim; to bring smiles and laughter.”
Clare works predominantly in watercolour to create her artworks. Its fluid quality and vibrancy suit the vintage charm of her creations. The artworks are then developed into art prints and a range of textile designs. Tog & Pini products are all designed and made in Melbourne.
“I focus on producing a distinctive range of hand made items that will be loved and kept for generations.”
Other products such as the frames in the Tog & Pini shop adhere to Fair Trade and sustainable manufacturing processes. They are carefully sourced for you, so that you have just the right frame for you’re Tog & Pini artwork.
If you require an artwork that is tailored to your own individual taste or as a particular gift for a friend or family member, please contact Clare directly to discuss your request. Clare will work with you to bring your idea to life and express it in her own individual style, endeavouring to make your artwork as unique as the person it is intended for.”
