Bernie's Rural Art Retreat

Dutch artist Bertie paints beautiful portraiture in her Melwood Art Studio in rural NSW.

Bertie and her husband Patrick had the Studio delivered and setup in just one day by the Melwood Team.

Bertie says “I love the fact that there was an empty space in the morning and then there was the fully erected cabin in the afternoon. I just wished Patrick was as quick in lining it but he has done a beautiful job. It gives me inspiration.”

The new Studio has given Bertie a place for Creativity – she can enjoy the peace and quiet of her own space while she creates her gorgeous portraits. The generous size of Bertie’s Studio has allowed her to add shelving for storage, a small sink for cleaning up, some comfortable seating, a day bed and a desk, as well as have space for creating and displaying her art.

A day bed and comfortable chair make the studio a relaxing and welcoming space. Perfect for an afternoon nap.

So how did she do it?

Bertie started by visiting one of the Melwood display centres, where she discussed her ideas with a team member who then helped her plan her cabana.

Her cabana was then custom-made in Melwood’s Sydney Factory. Fast forward a few weeks and the cabana was delivered and setup by the Melwood Team (oh, did we mention the setup took ONE day? – see how it’s done here!).

Bertie’s Cabana is the Verandah Cabana No.20 (6.3m x 3.2m + 1.3m verandah)
