Full Moon Publications
In 1996 Christine Porter formed the publishing company FULL MOON PUBLICATIONS, to create commercial reproduction of her paintings and etchings.The idea was hatched over coffee one day, in the dusty main street of Biloela, with the innocent statement “these would look good as greeting cards!”. What began as a yellow-sticky-note business-plan, has evolved into several card series, a book, Giclee prints and a fan-base worldwide.
Full Moon Publications is based in Lismore on the north coast of New South Wales, Australia. The company co-ordinates the design, manufacture, marketing and distribution of the cards and Giclee prints. Prior to the formation of Full Moon Publications, Christine had self-published a limited edition poster print of a shearing shed drawing and a few years later “The Violin” with the Qld Arts Council.
Christine remains the creative director of the company, which works with a number of industry professionals Australia-wide, including Evoke Design in Launceston, Graphic Expressions in Byron Bay and Lismore City Printery in Lismore. All the members of our extended community are committed to creating the most accurate representations of this artist’s artwork as is currently possible.
