Bush fires are a part of the natural cycle of our great country Australia. Weather the fires are caused by lightening strikes, man-made mistakes or deliberately lit by people, they create devastation, terrible loss of lives and habitat to both humans and animals. These drawings and prints are from the series "In the Line of Fire". These drawings and prints are my response to the constant unfolding narrative of bushfires, their impact on the native animals and the lasting impressions they have on all of us.
