The Austin Collection -
The Austin Hospital Collection – healing tool of nature.
The proposal was for 30 paintings of landscapes, containing animals and plants of Australia, were to hang in both ‘Outpatients’ of the Austin and the Heidelberg Repatriation Hospitals to create a healing atmosphere for patients attending.
Most of the paintings are in an impressionist style of landscapes around Melbourne and Victoria with added detailed cameos of specific animals or plants.
This project served to deepen my love and understanding the environs and the animals and plants of Australia. I continue to search and discover more of what this wonderful country has to offer.
