Keen to kick off 2016 in style, local artist Solveig has released a portraits calendar of 12 iconic Mullumbimby characters.

Culminating two years of work across two collections Colourful Mullumbimbians and Beautiful Blondes, the calendar features comedian Mandy Nolan, actorvist Tony Barry, community champion Jeannette Martin, singer songwriter Rebecca Ireland and many more.

Solveig, who due to popular demand also appears in the calendar, says it was a pleasure to bring these colourful characters to a large format, full colour calendar.

“I wanted to celebrate my unique community and it’s been joyful work meeting, collaborating with, and painting these beautiful people.”

Jeannette Martin says she was honoured to be included in this “wonderful calendar”.

“It depicts some of the colourful people you may know or have seen around town who add so much to the creativity of Mullumbimby,” Jeannette says.

You can get your copy of the calendar for $25, which is available now at Mullumbimby Newsagency, the Bookshop, Mullum Mac, the Magic Pot (formerly Japunumop Noshery) and online at

Copies of the individual portraits and Solveig’s other works can also be purchased online.
