I have been exhibiting my hand coloured Lino prints for over 30 years.
My interest in Australian native flowers has been a consistent theme. This has included native vegetation in the landscape particularly the coastal landscape of Yorke Peninsula. I like to explore the line, pattern and colour of form in my work.
Throughout my artistic career I have been dividing my time between Corny Point and Adelaide. This is such an exciting and original idea I was keen to participate.
It is humbling to contribute in a small way to this community project.
The idea for my bat came fairly quickly. I wanted to decorate the bat in my favourite flower – Banksia coccinea. I love the form, pattern and line of the flower and leaves. It was fun to draw and paint directly on to the bat. The colour reminded me of the stains left on the cricket bat from the red cricket ball – perhaps a stretch of my imagination!
