my piece was created as a study of all the tiny botanical treausres i found when near Arthur River, i drew my attention away from the magnificent rock formations and poked my nose into the heathlands.

tarkine in motion

This is an ongoing collaborative arts project playing a part in the campaign to ensure the tarkine/takayna wilderness in north west Tasmania is protected as a national park and world heritage area by 2020. Beginning in 2015 a group of over 70 artists were supported by the Bob Brown Foundation to travel into the Tarkine over the Easter weekend to experience and record the wild and scenic beauty of this area. I am grateful to have been a part of the project and to have been able to experience this landscape and begin to understand it's extraordinary values. In 2016 a small group of us rafted a section of the Huskisson River. We are working on a group exhibition to create a portrait of this stunning but threatened river. Stay tuned, will be sometime in 2018. Many more trips to the river required!
