Limited edition Quokka Head print. Available in various sizes.

This drawing is a part of my “Floating Head” series. Quokkas are a cute little marsupial that can only be found on Rottnest Island off the coast of Western Australia and also in some locations in the South West of Western Australia. Because they are relatively defenseless, small and inquisitive they are very vulnerable to attacks from introduced species such as cats and foxes so there aren’t too many on the mainland of Australia, though they’re just about everywhere you look on Rottnest Island away from predators. Living in Western Australia for most of my life I’ve visited Rottnest Island quite a lot and so have fond memories of summers riding around the small island on push bikes (there are no cars or motorbikes allowed on the island) to snorkel at all the beautiful little beaches and having these funny little animals constantly coming up to say hello. The Dutch originally discovered the island and thought the quokkas were giant rats and named it Rottnest which translates to rats nest which sounds horrible but quokkas are not at all related to rats and are actually very closely related to wallabies and kangaroos.

All prints are limited edition (1 of 200) and printed on Canson® Infinity Edition Etching Rag.

“Canson® Infinity Edition Etching Rag is a 100% cotton Fine Art paper with a smooth texture, reminiscent of the original genuine etching and printmaking papers. The paper has the purest white tone available on the market, without any Optical Brightening Agents, also called OBAs. Optical Brightening Agents are artificial brighteners that deteriorate in time. Canson® Edition Etching Rag offers a high paper shade stability and a resistance to aging by using natural minerals.

This museum-grade paper provides deep blacks, excellent image sharpness, optimum colour graduation and its unique slight grain makes it ideal for printing detailed work, colour photographs and exceptional black and white portraits.”

The printing is undertaken with specifically designed fine art ink and printers to create accurate colour replication and to ensure longevity.
