JOAN MULLARVEY

Creating bold and distinctive images, Mullarvey captures the beauty, harshness and fragility of our natural environment.  Mullarvey is an accomplished artist living in North East Victoria and her work has been exhibited both domestically and internationally.  Organic, natural plant materials are primarily her inspiration when she creates monoprints.  Collecting foliage from her garden or the roadside enables her to capture a moment in time before the beauty fades and disappears into the undergrowth. Each print is a unique, original hand pulled artwork.
