Sharon’s affinity with the flora of the Australian bush: a brief history.

I have the love of plants running in my veins; my mother loved the plants in her garden (she in turn inherited this love from her mother.) Every plant seemed to thrive under Mum’s watch – succulents, grevilleas, other natives, ferns and cacti. Although I don’t think she ever tried indoor plants. I remember asContinue reading “Sharon’s affinity with the flora of the Australian bush: a brief history.”

Summer days …

Hot summer days are a good excuse to stay inside and work. I am framing my miniature artworks of local flora. Using a variety of methods they are proving fiddly but worthwhile.

Tiny floral art scale

A friend suggested I put a coin against my art works to give scale…I should have thought that myself! Well here are two beautiful mini vases from Lyn at #thestudiohandmade with dried Australian wildflowers mixed with non native flora.

Summer Gold will be going to a its new home in the Yarra Valley. So heartening to know others appreciate my art. As well as ‘Embracing our Wildflowers’ I have been asked to add a new photographic art piece to the winter exhibition at the Market Building Winter show, Castlemaine, Victoria.

Yam Daisy is back

It was in 2016 during a foray into a mosquito laden bush that we first saw the Yam Daisy. It was one lonely plant and I have wanted to see and photograph more ever since then. Yesterday during our lockdown exercise, walking into the Box Ironbark bush near our home we spotted several of theseContinue reading “Yam Daisy is back”
