MEGAN TAMPALINE

The brush-tailed rock wallaby, one of Victoria’s most critically endangered species rests within a rocky crevice with her precious joey. She gazes over her vast mountainous home. Now that her kind is so rare, this land seems larger than ever.

I wanted to create something beautiful to remind everyone about the importance of pre­serving our natural home and its creatures. I learned about brush-tailed rock wallabies while doing research on the Grampians, which was the location I chose to create this landscape.

I have always focused on animals and nature in my art. Although it is only this year that I fell in love with drawing our native wildlife. My inspiration is all around me, so I wondered why I haven’t been doing this all along.

I created this work using mixed media. Beginning with a thin wash of watercolour, many layers of coloured pencil and finished with gouache details.
