About the Book

Husband and wife team Philippa and Alex Nikulinsky journey into isolated outback regions, often staying for months at a time, to paint the Australian bush.

Cape Arid National Park is a fascinating and remote area on the far south-eastern coast of Western Australia. Braving howling winds, grit, sleet, 43 degree heat and thousands of flies the Nikulinskys’ travel rough sandy tracks to be rewarded by shimmering seas, islands and unique flora and fauna.

In Cape Arid, the Nikulinskys share the privilege of their experences through exquisitely detailed botanical watercolours, sweeping black and white landscapes and an intimate written record of their journeys.
