About the Painting

Tanya paints the bush tucker and flowers found in the harsh desert lands of Utopia. Annual rainfall is very low; however, the country bursts into life after the winter rains with colourful flowers and bush foods. The women still go out to collect these special plants, seeds and fruits, which can be used for many things, including as a food source rich with vitamins and bush medicine.
