BEHIND THE COLLECTION
ROAD TRIPPING AROUND TASMANIA
I had always wanted to travel to Tasmania.
After living in Australia for 11 years, we decided during the height of the pandemic that if we booked a trip six months in advance, surely the borders would open up and we would be able to spread our wings. Well thats what we did, we booked a camper van for nine days and got ready for our Tasmanian adventure, and as luck would have it, the borders were open and what an inspiring adventure it was!
Every day in Tasmania held new and exciting experiences as we moved around the state in our camper van, stopping off at a brand new place every afternoon. We meandered our way from Hobart up North to Stanley and then made our way down the east coast and back to Hobart.

There were so many fantastic artisan cafes, beautiful vineyards and whisky distilleries that we visited.
I really hope that you are able to get a small insight into how much I loved exploring Tasmania, the way in which it touched my heart and has touched the heart of so many Australians who visit and are inspired by our Island state. It is the wonder and magic of Tasmania and the way it has caught the attention of so many others before me that I have tried to portray within this collection of paintings.
