A new exhibition inspired by nature is opening at Jacaranda House in Wauchope.

Colleen’s work can be seen on a regular basis at the Royal Botanic Gardens Sydney “Botanica Exhibition” and exhibitions of The Australian Watercolour Institute. Internationally her work has been exhibited in South Korea, China, Taiwan, the United Kingdom and Germany.
Colleen has been a finalist most recently in The Waterhouse Natural History Prize at the Museum of South Australia in 2010 and 2011 and The Shanghai Zhujiajiao International Watercolour Biennial Exhibition, in 2011,
Colleen thought that it would be nice change to exhibit locally.
“The intimate exhibition space in The Studio at Jacaranda House on 39 Cameron Street in Wauchope, is just ideal,” said the artist.
