Christabel Blackman has only recently returned to Australia after living in Spain for 25 years. Although her previous studio amidst the pine forests on the outskirts of Valencia has been replaced with one in Rozelle, Sydney, she is still nourished by the harmony and beauty of nature. “I am currently living in a gorgeous federation house. The pathway leading up to it is cascading in roses and out the back, beyond the studio verandah, is a tableau of colour; a florid blooming garden with mauve parterres, camellia and gardenia bushes, purple daisies, and strawberries,” she says.

Exhibition opens: 6pm Saturday 28 June 2014
Exhibition closes: 12 July 2014
Location: Anthea Polson Art, 18-20 Mariners Cove, Seaworld Drive Main Beach Queensland 4217
