“Return to Eden” is a play on words as one of the towns devastated by our recent Australian bushfires was called Eden. This painting came out of a response to feeling so helpless for the HUNDREDS OF MILLIONS of animals who lost their lives and homes and wanting to do something about it to help in some way!
I asked online what animals people wanted me to include and I’m pretty proud of the fact I managed to get most of them in!
– Baby Bats (abandoned by their mums)
– Native Bees
– Sugar Glider
– Lace Monitor
– Diamond Python
– Pygmy Possum
– Spotted Quoll
– Lyre Bird
– Yellow Tailed Black Cockatoo
– Sulfur Crested White Cockatiel
Some of the Native Plants I have included are:
– Grass Trees
– Old Man Banksia
– Woolemi Pines
