From the artist

I draw inspiration from recent field trips onto Tasmanian Land Conservancy properties on the East Coast that are part of the Moulting Lagoon ecosystem. Flooding seawater and rain at times fill the coastal ponds and lagoon systems creating a great habitat for wetland birds and insects. The windblown coastal grasses add to the atmosphere, creating great places for contemplation.
