Once again, we will be at the Southside Art Christmas Market showcasing all the amazing products we have been making this year. If you're still looking for that special present, or just want to see some amazing art with a cup of coffee, come and check out all the fabulous creators!
Keep checking our socials to stay up to date with the market and everything else going on during December.
Just Coaster-in' on Through
Let's face it, no one likes glass stains on their coffee tables. Thankfully Coasters are an easy solution that we all love. Coasters are also great because they are so customisable, whether they're wood, resin, paper or cork, there's a coaster for everyone. Now there's even a coaster for the art lover too!
Introducing the Queenslanders of Brisbane Coaster Set!
Each set includes 6 of Debra Hood's favourite and most iconic artworks, some of which are no longer available as reproductions, coated with a smooth gloss finish and mounted on low-slip cork.
All coasters come neatly packaged in a Debra Hood branded box with a slide-out drawer, allowing easy access to your new collection of mini artworks.
These coasters make the perfect small gift for any occasion, but no one would blame you for keeping a set for yourself. They will bring joy to anyone, and any vessel, in the room!

Stay Stylish this Summer
Introducing the 3rd Debra Hood Art Umbrella design, Saffron Sunset over Brisbane!
After the success of the first two umbrellas, we thought this artwork would be perfect for an umbrella, and it is!
The vibrant colours in this design make it perfect for beating the sun in style, or bringing colour to a rainy day.
Umbrellas are available for pre-order now, but hurry! If you pre-order before December 20th you'll receive a free Enamel pin valued at $28!
The Studio will be open until the 23rd of December when we close until January 10th. Pickup will be available until the studio closes, however feel free to get in touch with us over the holiday period and we will do our best to respond promptly.
The Etsy Made Local Market
We were fortunate enough this year to be a late inclusion in the Etsy Made Local Markets, held at the exhibition centre in Bowen Hills. Thank you to everyone who came out to say hello, it's always wonderful to be able to see your lovely faces and share our products with you in person!
Hayden’s love of Christmas can be traced back to his childhood when he would decorate the tree with his mum, ask dad’s help to hang lights outside of the house, and tune in to carols by candlelight to sing along with the music, as well as attending carols around the regional town of Charleville in the years they were hosted.
Two family traditions still stay with him as time has gone on: first are his chocolate logs, which are always a hit with the family; and secondly, he would always make paper chains with his mum to hang on the metal grate hung below the living room ceiling fan. It was a fun activity to cut up old newspaper and coloured paper into strips and staple or glue them together, and it also added some extra Christmas cheer around the house without using that dastardly tinsel that you’re still vacuuming up from 2 years ago.
What Christmas traditions from your childhood do you still carry with you today?
Here's a photo of our chain adorning the studio!
If you'd like to give paper chaining a go, we've put together a double-sided Confetti Paper Chain that you can download for free and print to your heart's content.
Don't forget to share your fantastic chains with us on Facebook and Instagram using the hashtags #brisbaneconfetti and #confettichain
Holiday Season is upon us, which means gift shopping, Christmas parties and family gatherings. Wonderful! For anyone who loves to wear Queenslander Earrings to social gatherings or use them as wine glass identifiers, what do you do with them when you’re done?
Are you putting them in a jewellery box, or hanging them on a jewellery tree? Well, this year why not use them as mini baubles to bring a little more Queenslander joy into your home?
The hoops are the perfect size for your houses to dangle from the branches, and the clasp can open so you can still hang them if you’ve discovered that you’ve put the tinsel and lights on in the wrong order (I do this every year!).
Limited Time Special!
The first 15 orders of a Bin Chicken will receive a free Bin Chicken Pin or pair of Socks!

The team at Debra Hood Art acknowledges the Jagera and Turrbul peoples as traditional owners of the land the beautiful Meanjin/Brisbane city resides. We recognise their connection to land, wind, water and community and pay respects to elders, past, present and emerging. The Meanjin/Brisbane area has such a splendid abundance of nature, and we feel so lucky to be able to capture and share its beauty through art.
