South West WA Art Prints
Our homes are the centre of our universe, and we live like the whole world is turning around us. The places we love bring a smile to our face and health to our hearts.
We can escape down south to vineyards and villages or take a boat out to Rottnest. We can let Fremantle surprise us or find the perfect beach somewhere. Look at this beautiful life full of adventure.
The South West is a treasure map of memories and special connections. The whales symbolise this coming together and how we have moved through time, staying close to each other. The artwork includes many well known locations, such as Margaret River township, the Margaret River, Prevelly & Gnarabup Beach, Cowaramup, Canal Rocks, Yallingup, Bunker Bay, Eagle Bay, Meelup Beach, Dunsborough, Busselton and the Busselton Jetty, Fremantle Cottesloe and Perth, the Swan River and Rottnest.
So many of our most precious stories are set in the South West. These places live in our hearts, remembering for us the pathways we have taken and the connections we have made.
In this painting of the south western corner of Australia, I want to express feelings of joy and celebration of this place and its generous spaces. I delight in its colours and the freedom of living here.
We live in this wonderful place, the vast metropolis of Perth. This work look at Perth from the north over the forest and lakes and playing fields of our green northern suburbs. The Perth CBD is flanked by the Swan River, which joins with the Canning River to make its gentle way to the Indian Ocean. Looking down the coast, you can see from City Beach to Cottesloe and Fremantle, and down to Garden Island and beyond, right down to the beautiful jetty at Busselton and the lighthouse at Cape Naturaliste.
What a place this is to live. Each of us can move freely through these wonderful spaces. It is a treasure map, come to life.
This painting is an embrace of all my favourite places. From the vineyards and lighthouses down south, Busselton Jetty, Fremantle, Cottesloe and Rottnest and the beautiful Swan river waterways. I’ve painted the birds soaring to capture that feeling of being on holidays and getting away.
