Just a quick update on our plans for christmas/January.
Our plans changed a few times leading up to christmas, but heres whats happening into January 2022.
Ill be trying to have a bit of down time over January, but having said that its a busy time for us supplying stockists etc so Ill be concentrating on that AND I NEED TO PAINT!. so they'll be new images coming in 2022.
Having said that, more than happy to answer peoples queries so pop me a message if youd like to know more about a product etc via email or through facebook messenger.
Im keeping this website open for orders so you can order online anytime and collect in person via doorstep collection from mailors Flat or postage available around Australia. If you order and choose doorstep collection, Ill pop you a text of address to arrange pickup, generally same day is available. 
Please note the studio is closed to all personal visits and appointments and this is most likely going to be the norm through current covid times. We are trying to stay safe so we can still see our family members so hence the need for doorstep collection only, and for this reason you wont find us at any markets in January. There are good stock levels at stockists though so please support them if youd like to see my jigsaws in person. Apart from that, hope you had a lovely christmas time and look forward to creating new images for 2022. Im excited! cheers, Karen

Quick update re jigsaw puzzles.
I have a good supply of Warrnambool jigsaw puzzles instock in 1000pc. They are available to be bought directly through website with doorstep collection being able to be done from my Mailors Flat studio or postage around Australia. For local orders once your order is placed I will text you with pickup address and for you to contact me the day before you wish to collect so I can have your order ready in the morning before I start my other duties for the day.
Some puzzle designs are starting to get low and wont be restocked before christmas. If you they arent available on my website, I cannot order them in time for christmas now. There are assorted designs and sizes available at Middle Island designs in Warrnambool, Collins Booksellers in Warrnambool, and The Local Place in Koroit. There are a range of smaller sized puzzles at Flagstaff Hill in Warrnambool, Port Fairy Tourist Info Centre and 12 Apostles Kiosk.
I have ordered new stock of the popular Mount Gambier puzzle for Limestone Coast Pantry in Mount Gambier and they are on their way, in  time for Christmas. 
I will update this blog as the puzzle journey continues.
Thanks to all for being so supportive.

<![CDATA[NEW PUZZLE STOCK ARRIVING NEXT WEEK!]]>Thu, 18 Nov 2021 00:24:13 GMThttps://karenmckenzieart.com.au/blog/new-puzzle-stock-arriving-next-week<![CDATA[A mountain of Jigsaws]]>Tue, 12 Oct 2021 05:59:04 GMThttps://karenmckenzieart.com.au/blog/a-mountain-of-jigsawsSo, Ive just ordered a mountain of jigsaws. The last lot sold out in just about a weekend so batter up, more on the way. You can preorder your jigsaw online today so you know youll be on the list to receive one as soon as they land. The good thing is they are made in Victoria! How cool is that. Its only the best time now to cut down on imported stuff and support our fellow Aussie businesses.
If you need a jigsaw in a hurry and cant wait for one to be made, just pop me a pm via my facebook page and I can let you know if I have a sneaking jigsaw hidden somewhere just for you. Doorstep collection is available from my home studio, so include your contact details when ordering so I can let you know when your eagle has landed. Over and out. Cheers Karen

<![CDATA[Cheerful originals, prints, pendants and more]]>Mon, 30 Aug 2021 06:12:50 GMThttps://karenmckenzieart.com.au/blog/cheerful-originals-prints-pendants-and-moreMy artwork is inspired by the beautiful area near Warrnambool, Port Fairy and the Great Ocean Road. I couple this wonderful slice of the world with many fond memories of growing up in country South Australia and with my family residing across the border, you"ll also find some SA designs as well.
Using bold and cheerful colours, I depict the natural scenery, smaller towns, and the abundant wildlife of our beautiful country.
Many of my customers say that they can see my joy and personality in each artwork which is the biggest compliment an artist can receive. I love to see the smiles on their faces when they’ve chosen something special to take home with them, or purchasing a gift for a loved one.
A3 prints are also a great way brighten up your space. Or a handmade pendant makes a memorable gift that is small and lightweight so easy to pop in the post.]]>
<![CDATA[Jigsaws selling fast]]>Mon, 30 Aug 2021 06:11:02 GMThttps://karenmckenzieart.com.au/blog/jigsaws-selling-fastNewest kids on the block are my cheerful jigsaw puzzles.
I enjoy painting each jigsaw design then another small regional business produces them as vibrant puzzles that feature many local scenes, such as the Twelve Apostles, dog yoga on the beach and other smaller towns from Lorne to the Adelaide Hills.
Im always adding to my collection of designs so its best to keep an eye on what Im painting by jumping on my facebook page https://www.facebook.com/KarenMcKenzieArt
With the growing collecting of unique designs available, the hardest part is choosing your favourite.
