Mary Rose Avent (Founder)

Since graduating with a BVA from University in 2002, I have been practicing design for 15 years. After interning & working in various design studios in Australia and New York, Aviary Studio was established in 2009.

In conjunction with Aviary Studio, I run a little Tumblr blog called The Aviary. Curating and sharing my love of visual gems and aesthetic miscellany, it was started long before the world of Pinterest as a personal reference to catalogue all the glorious things on the interweb. 
The Aviary has now built an amazing audience of like-minded creatives and has been featured on the Tumblr Spotlight alongside some of the world's top Tumblrs. It has a dedicated following of 50k Tumblr-specific followers.

I have also worked as a sessional lecturer at RMIT School of Fashion and Textiles in Melbourne, Australia.  

I live with my husband, two little boys and long-haired Jack Russell in a beautiful, windy coastal town on the Surf Coast of Victoria, Australia.
