‘Tree hollows are animal homes’
#1 Design collection – Eucalypt Open Forests, south-eastern Australia
‘Tree hollows are animal homes’ is a series of designs inspired by the relationship between the many Australian animal species that use hollows and the trees that provide them. This first set of 5 designs includes illustrations of 19 animal species that use hollows in the Eucalypt Open Forests of south-eastern Australia.
‘Possums of Australia’ design collection

As a result I now present you with 8 different possum / glider designs.

Binna Burra, September 2021 The forest always gives so much. But I need to slow down, to observe, to open myself to its abundance, for this to happen. As I walk into the forest I see the different layers, shapes, colours of green that are the leaves, foliage,...
