Antique nautical maps become metaphors of journey and navigation. Floating on these maps are islands - rubbings created directly from my previous hand cut topographical constructions of the three main mountains of Woonoorooran National Park.

These works are inspired by both the endurance and the fragility of these landforms;  human endeavour has lead to the islandification and fragmentation of these World Heritage rainforests that dominate my FNQ home.

These works explore both the beauty and the vulnerability of these landforms...

This triptych is currently on exhibition at the Cairns Regional Gallery as part of the Take It Home exhibition:
