SANDRA Hall is an artist who is delighted with linotype and enjoys the challenge of print-making.

She has put together a thoughtful series of works for exhibition, which highlights her focus on nature and insects.

The pieces are also testament to her rich cultural background, having grown up in south India, Ireland and Australia, where she ultimately studied art.

Hall has worked as an art teacher in high schools around the state and she brings an entymologist’s detail to her fine work at the Zig Zag Gallery.

Her love of landscape is reflected in some of her pieces, which play as a backdrop to the insects and fauna in the foreground of her work.

On display until Sunday, November 28, Hall’s work has been paired with Anita Phillips, whose focus is oil painting and landscapes.

Titled Near and Far Perspectives, the pair have embraced the Western Australian landscape and native fauna and flora in their works.

Hosted at Zig Zag Gallery, these contemporary works are for sale and can be bought in house from staff. Reasonably priced, they depict local scenes of nature in delicate and pristine environments.
