There could be fairies in this garden – Gulgamree, Mudgee,  is a seamed lino-block print made in response to a garden in Mudgee friends have grown as a sanctuary from their busy world.

The environment they have created is a repository of memory – an affirmation of actions and past experiences. This garden is a place of safety, where loved ones and family gather, friendships are nurtured, resilience built, and health restored.

This is a garden into which I have been welcomed. ~ Christine Druitt Preston, 2019.
