Published: 15 May 2019I feel very close to this country because of a great love for its flora and flora. I paint the threatened flora species of the Cumberland plains woodlands of western Sydney. We only have about 6 percent of bushland left. I paint the disappearing herbaceous flowers that might disappear forever. I stretch a hand out in friendship across to all the people who are helping to save our flora and fauna. Sonia Bennett singer/songwriter/botanical artist.
