In the tradition of botanical artists Marianne North and Rowan Ellis, this book features the work of nationally acclaimed botanical artist, Philippa Nikulinksy, whose exquisite paintings capture the natural wonder and diversity of the Australian desert.

‘The Soul is there in the dust, the red rocks and blue sky, the wind and rain, in the dunes and salt-lakes, in the people, and in the plant and animal life, waiting to be experienced, revealed, revered, by those who would look.’ Stephen D Hopper.
The perfect book for anyone interested in botanical art, natural history or fauna and wildflowers.
