I am inspired by the beauty and uniqueness of the natural environment and the plants and animals found within it.
I think of myself as an observer, analysing and interpreting what I see in drawings, watercolours and etchings, with a special interest in the endemic species of Tasmania. The result is both a work of art and a record which gives the information needed to identify the specimen.
My watercolours and drawings are mostly traditional botanical or scientific works, done in great detail, some needing extensive microscopy. Each work may take weeks or longer to complete, especially if the life cycle of the subject is included. I love doing the fine work this art-form needs. (www.annick.id.au).
