See the works of this self-taught artist, a Victorian railway engine driver by trade who devoted his paintings to Australian native flora and fungi. Did you know his paintings are on the Australian Passport?
Kris from ‘Bugs n Slugs’ has been extremely busy undertaking sessions with local kindys, preschools and schools across the South East, spreading the word about life in the deadwood. By the end of the week she will have shown just how important deadwood is to over 1000 people!! A full report will be in the next blog. Hope to see you on Sunday at the library!
