Print Gallery

The prints on this site come from photographs taken in the natural environment. Most have come from wild and not so wild places of Tasmania where I live and love to wander and explore – sometimes with a pack on my back for multi-day walks and others when I am closer to where I live on Bruny Island or in the foothills of kunanyi, Mt Wellington, where my husband and I have a small ‘town pad’. Occasionally I use photographs from other areas of Australia which have captured my attention in one way or another.

My work begins with photographs but becomes an exploration of the shapes, patterns, and textures that when blended bring back to me the thoughts and feelings that passed through my mind as my feet took me to both new and familiar places. For my audience I want the prints to remind you too of the beauty of the natural landscape and the reasons why so many of us value and want to preserve the opportunities for renewal these places bring to us.

When viewing the prints be aware that the colours may not be exactly the same as when they are printed unless your screen has been carefully calibrated.

THE PRINTS

‘Searching the Shores’ – These beautiful Pied Oystercatchers, Haematopis longirostris are frequent visitors to Nebraska Beach at Dennes Point where I live. Together with the silver gulls in the following image they are forever present and I found it too hard to choose which to include – clearly I solved my dilemma by making two similar prints! Print size 29.7 x 42cm that fits into frames with an A3 sized opening. Although non-editioned prints, each will be signed and can be framed with or without the title showing.

Searching the shores

‘Young gull explores’ – This print came after a visit to the beach this winter. The young silver eyed gulls, Larus novaehollandiae have beautifully marked feathers and their voices can often be heard almost wailing as they are left by their parents to fend for themselves. Print size 29.7 x 42cm that fits into frames with an A3 sized opening. Although non-editioned prints, each will be signed and can be framed with or without the title showing.

Young Gull Explores

‘Walking the Wetlands’ This print came from a selection of Tasmanian and Western Australian images. Egrets Ardea alba cruise wetlands and the shores of rivers and lakes in search of food, often frogs, fish and various invertebrates. They are elegant birds with long legs, graceful and flexible necks, snowy white plumage and yellow beaks.

Work in progress – ‘The skins of kunanyi’ came after a winter visit to Mt Wellington where, as often happens, I was tempted by the sight and feel of the beautiful bark of the trees.
