Hi. I’m Marty Ware, owner of OkkaLand. As you can see, I passionate about capturing images of this wonderful country – Australia.
My daughter, Karin and I particularly love taking photographs of birds and bush scenery. This could be anything from king parrots and rainbow lorikeets to rivers, mountains, the sea – or even rundown old beach houses.
I decided to create OkkaLand as I believe it represents a new and unique point of view. Australia truly is one of a kind. It is not only the largest island in the world, it is a continent filled with natural beauty, amazing wilderness – and wildlife found nowhere else in the world.
In this site you will find a range of diversity that just can’t be found anywhere else. All artistic creations are designed by me, Marty Ware, and my young daughter Karin.
Karin actually takes many of the photographs that are used in creating the designs.
One of the major reasons for OkkaLand is our daughter and father relationship. I’m a full time carer for Karin, have been since she was a babe ten years ago. My aim here is to be the very best father that I can. By running OkkaLand, I can have both the time to raise my daughter AND to build her skills as a photographer and nature lover. I’m well aware these skills and values will enable huge advantages for her in the years ahead.
If you would like to become supporter of OkkaLand, get in touch with me here. You could perhaps do this by simply ordering one or more of the products featuring our designs. They are all Australiana designs and each is unique. My favourites are the T-shirts However, over time you will see other products that may appeal to you. All will be of our own unique designs.
Currently orders are taken by me personally. We’ve yet to set up a shopping cart.
I want to thank you in advance for taking the time to find out more about us. Karin and I look forward to hearing from you. Please feel free to get in touch regarding any questions or inquiries that you may have.
