Living Next Door to Ellis A series of ceramic works inspired by the Flower Hunter Ellis Rowan –
In the early 1900’s Ellis, a petite English woman known as the Flower Hunter, made adventurous trips into North Queensland and Papua New Guinea to paint native flora. One of her collections is held at the Qld Museum and this is the inspiration for my exhibition. If too many of our Native Flora become extinct then the only record we will have of these species will be Ellis Rowan’s paintings and ceramic ware on which to serve up our explanations on what happened to our native flora.
