Art print of an original painting by Helen Ansell. Boab Tree (Adansonia gregorii)The Boab Tree is related to the Madagascan and African Adansonia species known as baobabs. As with other baobabs, it is easily recognised by the swollen base of its trunk, which forms a massive caudex, giving the tree a bottle-like appearance. The huge tree, found in the Western Australian Kimberley region, is used as food, medicine, shelter and artwork. Boabs range form 5-15 metres in height, usually between 9-1...

Art print of an original painting 'Golden Grevilleas' by Helen Ansell. 'This painting came about as the basis for the design for a mural I did for Morawa Senior High School earlier this year. Being the town of Morawa’s floral emblem and a flower I have never painted (nor ever seen painted before) I love to be able to celebrate our local flora in this way as well as to educate both myself and the public that see my work about the many varieties of native flowers we have in Western Australia – ...

Art print of an original painting 'Native Hibiscus' by Helen Ansell. 'The inspiration for this painting came from my daily drive between Yalgoo and Mullewa in 2020, when I was driving the 200km round trip to deliver art lessons within the community. I saw a gorgeous flash of purple on the side of the road and had to stop and take a photo of this exotic looking flower, growing happily in the red desert dirt. While the tropical (non-native) hibiscus is better known, I loved discovering that, li...

Art print of an original painting 'Qualup Bells' by Helen Ansell. 'I was instantly attracted to these gorgeous flowers for their lovely bell shapes and their soft pink and green hues. I spotted a pot plant of these in our local garden centre (no it didn’t survive in my garden as we have the wrong climate where I live!) and as I proudly carried it around the store, I had a few people come up to me asking what it was, as it is such an unusual and beautiful plant. Such unusual colours, I tried t...

Art print of an original painting 'Major Mitchells amongst the Macrocarpa' by Helen Ansell. 'These cockatoos are mainly found in arid and semi-arid inland areas of Australia, though they are often seen regularly in other climates. They particularly favour conifers (Callitris spp.) sheoak (Allocasuarina spp.) and eucalypts. Pairs don’t tolerate nesting closely together; hence they require extensive woodlands. Numbers have declined as their habitat has been cleared. This branch of cockatoos, Lo...

Art print of an original painting 'Honey Possum' by Helen Ansell. 'This tiny marsupial, Tarsipes rostratus, is found in the south of Western Australia, being most common in regions of high Proteaceae diversity. Its entire source of food is nectar and pollen from a diverse range of flowering plants, and is often an important pollinator; similar mammals are all bats. It is mainly nocturnal, but will come out in daylight to feed during cooler weather. A prehensile tail and opposing toe on the lo...

Art print of an original painting 'Bush Banksias' by Helen Ansell. 'There are over 173 varieties of banksias in the world and over 60 of them occur naturally in Western Australia. When I returned from living in the UK for three years, it was the banksia plant with all its large, wild and dramatic shapes of leaves, flowers and pods that really drew my attention in wanting to paint them. And they have been one of my favourite flowers to paint ever since. In this painting, I deliberately chose t...
