Motherworks is a unique art, design and construction facility creating diverse themed environments for Museums, Zoos, Public Art and the Architectural industry. Acknowledged widely as industry leaders over the last thirty years through the legacy of its predecessor, Mothers Art Productions, the multi-disciplinary team have a wealth of experience in generating and executing ideas for exciting and highly engaging works. Our designers and artists work closely with graphic, industrial designers, landscape and architectural disciplines to ensure client satisfaction and positive project outcomes. We plan, design and project manage in a collaborative and streamlined process from conception through to completion.

Our commitment to quality and innovation has earned Motherworks a reputation for combining an artistic sensibility with precise design execution. We ensure a strong visual experience with due consideration to access, operational safety and durability. The overwhelming public response to recent work such as Taronga Zoos Tiger Trek, the award winning South Australian Museum’s Bio Diversity Gallery and Auckland Zoo’s Te Wao Nui, is a testament to their significant visual impact, educative experience and lasting appeal.
