Greeting cards with a story to tell

SHE'S obsessed with the colour red but displays a palette of colours in her greeting cards available to the public next week.

Nicole McBride, a professional artist, spent more than five years working on SoulStream, a collection of greeting cards with a simple story behind them.

The story is about a girl and her travels through rural Tasmania and all the different animals she encounters.

She started working on the cards after spending time in the island state.

The 36-year-old Brisbane native who calls Hervey Bay home is already working on her next projects.

"I am painting for an exhibition alongside Fraser Coast sculptor Karen Roberts next May. I am also working on a new children's book," she said.
