Artist Lyn Franke will hold an inside/outside show at her home this coming weekend.

Landscapes incorporating crushed wildflowers and other items from her garden, small acrylics and oils and exterior boards featuring recycled materials will be on show at 3 Koolyanga Road.

The mixed media artist said the garden of her long-time home was a constant inspiration ” kangaroo paws often featured in her paintings.

A newly planted contemporary native front garden provided further inspiration and an ideal backdrop for her work.

A well-known textile artist, Franke brings exterior boards to life with pebbles, pressed tin and other recyclables and a rusted paint effect.

‘This will be a diverse show of about 40 pieces, some new, some older,’ she said.

Award-winning Franke, welcomes the public this Saturday and Sunday, 10am to 4pm both days.
