Inspired by Wild Flowers

Four years ago, I knew nothing about our local wild flowers. Moving to a property with bushland piqued my curiosity about the larger, more noticeable species. I began to photograph them so I could identify what they were in field guides.  Along the way, I am fortunate to have met local people who showed me native orchids and lilies, some only a few centimeters high. I caught the bug, wanting to document all of the species growing in our bushland.

Somewhere along the way, identification turned into artwork. I began creating digital art to emphasise features of the flowers. This evolved into creating fabric designs.

Yesterday, the culmination of this work was the opening of my exhibition “Wild: flowers of Central Victoria” showcasing work in all three forms. If you live in Ballarat, or are passing through, drop by Radmac, 110 Armstrong Street South, Ballarat and take a look.  ‘Wild’ runs throughout February 2017.

I write, create visual art - photography, fabric designs, digital art - and enjoy capturing the flora and fauna of the Central Victorian bushland in my work.
