About Us

Art Boards Australia was born out of frustration when I couldn't buy a decent quality art board for my wife or one that was made right here in Australia.

This was back in 2012, initially they were being made for personal use but before long, other artists started to request painting panels be made for them.

Art Boards Australia hand makes all of its art boards in Melbourne, Australia from the best materials available to produce the highest quality art boards possible for all types of artists. All of the timber products we use are sustainably sourced and are FSC and or PEFC certified. 

Over the years we have been expanding our range of surfaces to include Birch ply, Aluminium, Pine ply and primed mdf and raw mdf. We have also now launched a range of Shadow box frames made from locally sourced Victorian Ash.

We have a great deal of pride in what we create and want our art board to compliment the art being created on them.
