The original painting 'The Wave-walker' - Shy Albatross and Limited Edition Print of 'The Neighbours' - Yellow-tailed Black Cockatoos have recently flown to join their new owners in beautiful Switzerland. 

A busy weekend spent with a very talented group  working with gouache - I don't think they drew breath.  

Some were experienced artists, absolute beginners with a passion for painting, and many had never worked with this medium before.  Congratulations to all.

The Raptor & Wildlife Refuge of Tasmania Inc. is a not-for-profit organisation established by Craig Webb on a 20-acre property overlooking Kettering and the D’Entrecasteaux Channel. 

This inspiring Refuge clearly reflects dedication to caring and protecting Tasmania’s natural wildlife, and the proximity of the Refuge to the birds’ natural habitat is a great advantage to rehabilitation. The planting and mulching of many native trees also provides a more natural Bushland setting and privacy.

Private Walks and Talks can be arranged by contacting -

The following prints are available for sale and a percentage of proceeds go directly to the Raptor Refuge.
