   Field Trip    exhibits a world I found to be alive and erupting with colour, pattern and incredible plant peculiarities.    In a series of trips in 2016 I learned about desert places previously unknown to me, illustrating my way into an Australian landscape through the flora and fauna.    These silk scarves push the ‘Eremophila neglectas' of our plantscape into the spotlight, challenging the notion that ‘there is nothing out there’,noticing and applauding our arid land plants.    Fragments only, but I hope they take you there.    They are illustrated, printed and made in Australia.     Photography + Styling by  Georgia Blackie

  Olive Pink    Olive Muriel Pink (1884–1975 is a woman who opened a door onto a living arid landscape for me.     In her Alice Springs garden reserve, with rock wallabies looking over my shoulder, I sketched Eucalyptus orbifolia (minniritchie, Round-leaved Mallee) and several Eremophilas.     So much choice!

  Bush Silver : Stripped of colour and context these flowers shine in silver. I found beauty in their isolation as single specimens, especially  Eucalyptus macrocarpa  and  Banksia menziesii , but essential is the companionship of their smaller, spindly, silver - stemmed friends.   Left to right (bottom row) :   Acacia truncata  (Red Eyed Wattle),  Senna artemisioides  (Silver Cassia),  Eremophila neglecta ,  Eucalyptus kingsmillii,   Hakea lorea  (Corkwood), Unidentified acacia,  Indigofera leucotricha  (Silver Indigo),  Ammobium alatum ,  Eucalyptus gillii .

  Sand Goanna (Gordon)    I saw my very first living Sand Goanna circling our campsite at Wooleen Station in Western Australia. But my second encounter, with a goanna resting lifeless on a rock shelf in Weano Gorge, Karijini National Park, allowed me to observe its intricate surface markings and patterns. This Sand Goanna circles around the scarf on a landscape of quick and instinctive sketchbook scribbles undertaken on the same trip.
