Patternbank love Gail Kellet’s linocut studies of the Australian flora and fauna where she lives on the Fleurieu Peninsula, Southern Australia. Kelley enhances the main image in her work with bold elements in both the foreground and background including large areas of black and white, giving the plants centre stage.
