“Each of the flower paintings in this book represents a personal discovery.  During a lifetime of interest in wildflowers and love of the Australian bush, my discovery of Western Australian wildflowers in the wild, began with a trip to my parents from my home state of New South Wales in 1973.  Without the benefit of very much knowledge of botany, we relied on photographs and descriptions in a few books in order to identify the plants we were seeing for the first time.  Since then I have lived and worked amongst the magnificent flora here in Western Australia.
This book is not just intended as a guide to finding flowers in their natural habitat, as many of them are grown in gardens, parks and as street trees all over Australia and overseas.  I hope to make people more aware of out magnificent wildflowers, to discover them for themselves and to study and grow them, an occupation which has provided me with a great deal of pleasure and satisfaction. “
