Edith Cowlishaw: Printmaker
Edith Cowlishaw has been long recognised as a master Australian Artist printmaker. A recognition that has been gained over a lifetime of dedication to the technique of etching and her enduring bush walking passion. This relationship with the native flora and bush landscape of Australia is evoked in her detailed intaglio drawings of the delicate native plants and flowers, often overlooked, hidden in the undergrowth of the bush.
Cowlishaws' passion for the bush echoes with bush walkers world wide. Her mastery of technique and aesthetic is obvious; it is both a great recommendation of, and recognition for, her skills as printmaker and artist, that her work is represented in the personal collection of the Japanese Royal family.
