Firewood Banksia

Written by Philippa Nikulinsky


A dazzling and wondrous celebration of Banksia menziesii (Firewood or Menzies’ Banksia) by one of Australia’s best botanical artists. After many field trips and long observation of the species, Philippa Nikulinsky has created a series of detailed drawings and paintings that record this banksia and its cycle in all their beauty.

’It’s obvious a lifetime of honouring the flora and fauna of WA in watercolour has not dimmed Nikulinsky’s enthusiasm. Firewood Banksia is further proof her unstinting commitment to her subject is very much alive and well.’ Artist's Chronicle
