Sugarbird Lady Collection

 

Our Sugarbird Lady Collection is a creative collaboration between Marie Megaw and the RFDS in Western Australia. Marie is a talented artist with a personal connection to the Royal Flying Doctor Service through her sister Robin Miller. Robin is an icon in Flying Doctor history, as a flight nurse and pioneering aviator.  To her patients throughout the Kimberley and Pilbara, Robin became the 'Sugar Bird Lady' - a name that stuck throughout her life.

Marie was born in Perth but has also resided in Broome, WA. Her artwork is vibrant, detailed and representative of the natural beauty of Western Australia, featuring local fauna and flora. Marie seeks inspiration from her tended garden and adventures in the vast landscapes of our state.

The collection is inspired by the adventures of the Sugarbird Lady and her lasting legacy. Each item in the collection features stunning artwork created by Marie Megaw that encompasses the essence of Western Australia, the care and service of the Flying Doctor and the spirit of the Sugarbird Lady.
