Coral and Blush planting creativity across SA

Abbie Tiller

Bringing nature indoors has become a global trend in recent years, taking us back to the 70’s and 80’s when many living rooms featured a healthy Boston Fern hanging from the ceiling.

Fast forward to 2023, and there’s only one thing trending more than a well-nurtured house plant, and that’s a well-nurtured house plant in a brightly hand-painted statement pot from Coral and Blush.

Recently listed by The Advertiser as one of the top seven ‘innovative business women in the Adelaide Hills’, Coralie Talbot has united her love for nature and plants with a passion for abstract painting, to create a unique side-hustle that sees her “popping up” all over South Australia.

What began in 2020 with a simple painted pot and plant has morphed into a multifaceted art venture people can’t get enough of.

As well as creating custom pots, with bright layers of colour, splashed with surprise elements incorporating her love for native flowers, palms and foliage, Coralie shares her passion for art by running hugely popular ‘Coral and Blush’ workshops. It’s a winning combination for Coralie, who also loves a good road trip.

“Running workshops in different areas across the State has enabled me to see and get a feel for our beautiful regions- from the Flinders, Fluerieu, Yorkes and beyond”, she said.

“I love to teach to all abilities, and encourage people to have fun through the painting medium whilst creating something they can take home and be proud of.

I think people have the ability to surprise themselves, and once they grow confidence there are no limits”

Coralie teaches both pot painting and canvas workshops, catering for up to 20 people, at various venues, as well as in her own home studio in Mount Barker.

Rather than teaching in front of the class, she works the room, spending time to offer creative tips and advice to help participants achieve their masterpiece.

And there’s no shortage of budding artists with a desire to pick up a paint brush and try their hand at creating their very own work of art.  If a Coral and Blush workshop pops up in your area, chances are you’ll need to get in quickly!

Or if you’d rather leave the painting to the expert, Coralie works on commissioned pieces and currently has an exhibition at Kitchen Farm Pantry in Mount Barker.

You can also pick up a uniquely designed candle in the “Coral and Blush Artist Range” – a collaborative project with Transform Scents, combining botanic aromas with Coral and Blush’s trademark abstract designs.
