March - April 2022
Palgarup landscape and wildlife artist, Barbara Maumill, draws on her local environment for inspiration to present a stunning new body of work, entitled wild inspiration.
The area's exquisite variety of flora and fauna are her muse. Barbara captures both their spirit and appearance in her beautifully detailed work. In particular, the old growth forests of the area offer a richness in light, colour and texture that she transposes onto canvas and opens our eyes to the intricacy and beauty of the natural world.
