BOTANICAL MARVELS: Naturally drawn to a sense of place

Travel Writer WILLIAM YEOMAN talks to a WA artist about landscape and a retrospective of her work.

As daughter-in-law Angela Nikulinsky writes in the superb monograph complementing the current exhibition Naturally Nikulinsky: “Philippa’s approach to her work is by total immersion in the Western Australian environment. She doesn’t go bush to find and pick a specimen to draw, she goes to a place to be there."
