Julianne Smart

Julianne SmartMy background is as a physical geographer and I am passionate about both conservation and the Australian aesthetic. I have trained in printmaking for some years at the Hazelhurst Regional Gallery and Art Centre.  Linocut and, to a lesser extent woodcut, are the mediums I have gravitated to- enjoying as I do the process of carving as much as the image making.  I am exploring ideas around perceptions of ‘common species’ and space in my work.
