Introducing the team
Together we are The Flying Gecko Project and we are passionate about our creative community. We are proud to work alongside other local creatives as we support each other to grow our small businesses.
Chiggy is inspired by our northern Australian landscapes and our environment. She paints bright and colourful semi-abstract artworks.
Chiggy is a mother of two, a partner to Ben, a graphic designer, and volunteers at Darwin Visual Arts Association. She has exhibited her work in solo and group shows both in the Northern Territory and South Australia.
You can find out more about Chiggy and her career as an Artist on her website.
Boo is an independent artist and designer working from a home studio at Darwin River, NT. Studied in many things, she is primarily a fabric designer.
All bippidii boppidii fabrics are printed from her original designs and printed in Australia. Boo and her son Dorian then cut and sew homewares, bags and accessories in-house.
Boo is inspired by the natural environment and has developed a soft spot for birds in particular.
You can find out more about Boo on her website.
Orlando is an enthusiastic supporter of local creatives, Orlando has assisted Boo at Darwin markets and has gained a clear knowledge of the local market scene and stall holder needs. He is increasingly involved in the day-to-day running of bippidii boppidii, including managing finances.
Prior to moving to Darwin from South Australia in 2009, Orlando worked on the Anangu Pitjantjatjara Lands over a number of years, developing a strong connection to the place and its people. Since moving to Darwin River five years ago he has cultivated his love of frogs and his loathing of gamba grass.
