The Australian Bird series is inspired by all the local bird life that Maria sees in her garden in the Blue Mountains - she is very lucky to have 3 lyrebirds living in her garden which backs onto National Park. The Australian Superb Lyrebirds are most notable for their amazing ability to mimic natural and artificial sounds from their environment, and the striking beauty of the male bird's huge tail when it is fanned out in courtship display. They are among Australia's best-known native birds.
Originally painted with watercolours on cold pressed paper and then scanned at high resolution making these high quality prints almost identical to the original painting.
