Birds pop up regularly in the NosMos world with watercolour peacocks morphing into eyes, and little wrens on feathery vines. “We especially love little native birds; the ones like wrens and robins. It amuses us that they stay in the air with their little fluffy bodies and tiny wings. Rod’s original watercolour works are soft and cheeky and reflect his gentle nature”, said Limebeer.

“As an art/design partnership we really complement each other. It’s a natural progression for us to follow up our music ventures with something visually creative”, said Alexander.

One of her many accomplishments saw her establish the tertiary student show at Australian Fashion Week. She has also worked as a publicist for a number of high profile fashion and lifestyle brands like Cartier.

Rodney J. Alexander studied fine arts at Newcastle University (Bachelor of Fine Arts) and works as a commissioned artist for discerning clients looking for their own one off creation or design project. He also studied graphic design at Hornsby Technical College.

Being driven by the “creative” right side of the brain, people would not be surprised to find out that Hiedi & Rodney also don a second hat as working musicians. Their recent debut CD Carry Me Away featured on ABC Radio; described by Radio National’s Geoff Wood as a ‘real find’. They have recently performed at The Taste of Tasmania and the Cygnet Folk Festival. Hiedi is often compared to Celtic singer/songwriters such as Loreena McKennitt and Enya. You can find out more about their music at
