Grevillea 2. Back to Nature - Collaboration

Another great collaboration with Sarah of Sustainable fashion for RANT clothing . They have used the same Grevillea print they bought last Summer but have used a natural cream background this year instead of last year’s charcoal. The fabric looks beautiful. Light and fresh and perfect for summer. The range is called Grevillea 2. Back to Nature.

endings and beginnings

The art exhibition last week was a lovely ending to two years working in the Brisbane Botanic Gardens as artist in residence. The exhibition was held in the Richard Randall art studio nestled in the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Garden . All the watercolour and ink paintings were done in the garden during 2017.  Sculptures of birds, insects and plants made out of paper, ceramic and natural materials were also on display.

I will miss the beautiful Brisbane botanic gardens. They have been my inspiration for two years.

Now to clean my studio and get ready for a new project working with nature.

Endangered Species - Eucalytpus infera

For the past couple of months I have been painting specimens from the Eucalyptus Infera. Jason Halford  from the seed bank (which is situated in the Mt Coot-tha Botanic Garden ) has been supplying me with specimens. We are hoping to make a trip next week to see the trees growing in their natural habitat. I am looking forward to meeting the trees I have been painting. 

The Eucalyptus infera is listed as a vulnerable plant species.
