Bluethumb Testimonials from Australian Art Lovers
At Bluethumb HQ, we believe there is an artwork for every home, and a home for every artwork. Nothing puts a smile on our team’s faces like seeing a piece in its forever home! After a record-breaking month of sales, we’re taking a look at some of our favourite testimonials from art lovers and collectors over the past few months in words and pictures.
Beautifying more homes in Australia and worldwide than ever before whilst supporting independent Australian artists and Indigenous art centres – we can’t say for certain that we have the best job in the world, but we’re pretty darn close.
‘Mum-Approved’ Art: Jane Scandizzo
Whether or not you’re up-to-speed with Australian reality TV show Yummy Mummies, star Jane Scandizzo is no stranger to Bluethumb. Her idyllic lifestyle is enough to make us go green with envy; especially when we see her choice of Australian art furnishing her Insta-exemplary home! With paintings by Heylie Morris, Lisa Fahey and Ross Morgan, Jane’s three boys have their own animal artworks bringing life and play to their rooms.

Happy Art Lovers, Happy Artist
There isn’t an artist out there who doesn’t love seeing their artwork hanging pride of place in the home of its new owner. We are lucky enough to pass on these heartfelt messages to artists, and their response is always a joy to see!
I just wanted to pass on my thanks to Nicole Fearfield for her artwork ‘A Lifetime of Adventures’ that was delivered to me last week. It is now hanging proudly in my living room where I get to see it everyday and smile. The room finally feels complete with this original artwork that was also beautifully framed. I’ve attached a photo of what it looks like so hopefully she feels proud when she gets to see it. Thanks for the amazing service. It feels great to be able to support local artists and celebrate their talents. – Amanda T., April 2020
Back in April this year, Penny L. bought a piece by bestseller Sophie Lawrence. Penny loved the painting so much, she reached out to Sophie to express her thanks:
I received the painting today! I love it! You did a beautiful job! You are a great artist, I look forward to acquiring another piece! Thank you very much! – Penny L., April 2020
Sophie was thrilled to hear from Penny: Oh wow thank you I must say it amazing on your wall and the little vase of flowers below just brings the red out . Thank you for your kind words, I love painting and this is just the icing on the cake!
Artist Gina Fishman was recently contacted by the new owner of the painting Madison Avenue. Maya, the collector, had been searching for two years for the perfect piece, with a specific place in mind. See the painting in prime position below!
With this painting, we were fortunate enough to see both the buyer’s reaction and the artist’s. What a beautiful testimonial!
A Commission Testimonial
Whether it’s because your dream piece has already sold or it just doesn’t exist (yet!), commissions are always a wonderful way to get exactly what you’re after. One buyer, Erin, contacted artist Kate Gradwell for exactly that.
Archibald and Portia Geach finalist Kate Gradwell is best-known on Bluethumb for her emotive and vibrant landscape works. Browse out her portfolio here. If, like Erin, you’re interested in commissioning your own piece, click here for information on how to get your ideal artwork.
The First Time Collector Testimonial
We understand how difficult it can be when buying art for the first time. The choice can feel overwhelming to start with, and it can feel like there are many factors that weigh in on your decision.
Knowing that Bluethumb have been with a collector from the very first click never gets old. Here are just a few of our favourite first time collector testimonials!
I’ve been looking for original and quality art to hang in my house for a long time – mostly I found the artwork was either out of my reach financially or not of the quality that I was seeking. I somehow stumbled onto Bluethumb and am absolutely ecstatic over the first piece I bought which now hangs proudly as a centrepiece in my living room. I’m now trying to choose between a whole array of additional artworks which all look stunning and are at such an affordable price. Also love the fact that the staff at Bluethumb followed the whole process from purchase through to final delivery – they really cared about my experience. Bluethumb – you rock!! – Phillip M., April 2020
I love Bluethumb! I was so excited to discover a way to access local Australian artists. Just made my first purchase and I couldn’t be happier with it! – June 2020
I’d been wanting to buy a proper piece of art for years (and years). Finally, with Bluethumb, I achieved it. I’m absolutely delighted with the piece I bought and know it will give me pleasure for years. The team was wonderfully helpful and friendly. This was a very important first for me- but I don’t think it will be the last! – Harriet F., April 2020
Very happy – would recommend! AAA+ Ordering through Bluethumb was easy and hassle free. I was nervous as it was my first time buying art – ever – and I love it – it wont be the last. I emailed the artist who got back to me and we discussed his art – made it personal and more meaningful. I love this site!!!! – Dominic C., June 2020

Lindsey and family wanted a piece to remind them of sunny days by the beach on rainy days in the city of Melbourne. As we plunge into the colder temperature of winter, our Melbourne-based crew can’t get enough of those dreamy seascapes either!
What was the final verdict? I just wanted to say how pleased I am with my first Bluethumb purchase. A beautiful painting by Leanne Mann’s. The whole family loves it reminding us of lazy summer days at the beach. Leanne is so talented, the painting seems to radiate warmth and sunshine, perfect for a rainy Melbourne day! Please pass on our thanks to Leanne her painting is stunning. Best wishes! – Lindsey P., June 2020

Original artwork can be difficult to source when you don’t know where to start. Blue thumb provides a space for artists and art lovers to come together no matter what your style or budget. I’ve been fortunate enough to purchase 2 beautiful and original pieces from two different artists and found both transactions to be seamless. – Elisha D., March 2020
Thank You, Bluethumb and the amazing artists work I have on my walls. I’m up to purchase No.6! I can’t say enough about the great service and communication, as well as the amazing art you provide. My absolute favourite art gallery! – Susan B., March 2020
