About the artwork:

Tamar Island, Riverside


With a rich and varied history Tamar Island has been a quarantine station, farms, a training base for soldiers and a watery graveyard for sunken ships called the Burial Grounds.

In 1890 Tamar Island became a botanical ark with over 500 trees donated from the Botanical Gardens in Hobart.  There are still roughly 100 trees including varieties spruce, fir, elm and oak on the island today.

Until the 1950s, the island was offered as a farming lease. The last resident was Thomas Robinson, who in 1892 leant his plough up against an oak tree upon the death of his wife. That tree is still there today with the plough embedded in its trunk.

About the Cockle Creek to Queenstown collection:

Cockle Creek to Queenstown interprets, with visual images and history, the Tasmanian landscape through a combination of themes. These include: tracing the journeys of the early exploration by the Europeans, the settlement of the Tasmania, the representation of palawa kani, illustrations of the land and its histories and the relationship between the images and text.

About the print on canvas:

Each canvas is hand-stretched over a kiln-dried timber frame and coated with Aquathane-UV liquid laminate. This ensures the prints are fade-resistant, durable, and easy to clean. Print comes on premium archival canvas and printed with genuine Canon inks to guarantee the prints are made to the highest standard.

Please note – actual size may vary, size indicates maximum width or height (eg. portrait or landscape).
