Artwork Story

These prints were made from 2018-22 by after recent experiences working in East Arnhem land with the late Mulkun Wirrpanda, and in the Riverina while making paintings for the project Earth Canvas.


The Arnhem land prints include various creatures including Forest Kingfishers, Striated Pardalotes and ants which nest in termite mounds.


The Riverina etchings  are about the miccorhizal fungus skeins and webs which connect trees and plants, and the rich aquatic life of the rivers, creeks and chains of ponds on Bibberinga Farm.


The artist would like to acknowledge Kaitlyn Gibson for her skill for printing of these works.
