Hello world!

Welcome to a place where I can show you my artistic world — the people that inspire me, the natural things that catch my eye, and my own art work.

And to begin, some photos that I took on our recent trip to the Flinders Ranges. Enjoy!

 

 

The Flinders Ranges are incredibly old. Fossil evidence has dated them to about 640 million years, which make them some of the oldest mountains in the world. Move through them and you see the bones of the earth.

The rocky, exposed environment means that many plants are suited to the arid conditions, such as the prolific white cypress pine (Callitris glaucophylla). However, along the dry creek beds there are magnificent river red gums (Eucalyptus camaldulensis), like these growing along the track into Wilpena Pound.
