My prints come from photographs taken in wild and not so wild places of Tasmania where I love to wander and explore. Many come from Bruny Island where I live or from the foothills of kunanyi, Mt Wellington where I lived for many years. I want them to remind you 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.

‘Coastal Blues – Tasmania’ brings the blues of Tasmanian shores together in a print I made after a recent winter weekend visit to the East Coast.
‘The Sand Scuttlers’ features three birds I found in different parts of Tasmania and their background comes from images taken on a walk to Fluted Cape, Bruny Island. These tiny red capped plovers Charadrius ruficapillus dash around Tasmanian beaches and rarely stay still long enough for me to catch them on camera.
‘Below Tide’s Mark’ is a beautiful combination of colour, texture and shapes of Tasmania’s shorelines
‘The Cliff Dwellers’ began as a series of photos taken at the Southern end of Nebraska Beach, Dennes Point, Bruny Island. It brings to mind ideas of where we live – for humans in structures developed to protect us from elements such as wind and water, hot and cold temperatures and the movement of Earth’s crust. For many on the shoreline the natural structures provide for their protection – natural habitats that need to be preserved.
‘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!
‘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.
