Botanical Description

This small, spreading, stout tree reaches 4–11 m in its native habitat. Its flowers are reddish-pink or coral-coloured and hang decoratively on reddish stems. It produces clusters of orange barrel-shaped buds with horned caps, followed by a profusion of flowers between August and December. The flowers produce abundant nectar and pollen, which provides a good food source for wildlife. It mainly grows on hillsides around Kalgoorlie and Coolgardie in Western Australia.

About the Artist

Helen Ansell is a regional Western Australian artist. Her vibrant paintings capture the spirit of native Western Australian flora and fauna. Helen grew up in Ululla, a remote Aboriginal community in central WA and has strong ties to the indigenous communities there. Helen now lives in Mulluwa, the centre of WA’s wildflower country, where she is inspired by the wild desert landscape. Her passion for supporting regional communities has seen her take part in large-scale public art projects in and around her town.

“I often get asked about the use of dots in my artwork and whether I have an Indigenous background. I grew up in an Aboriginal community which has had a huge influence on my art. I have the full support of my home community in Wiluna for my artistic pursuits as well as formal letters of support from recognised Aboriginal Elders in the Midwest. I only ever use dots in a purely decorative sense with birds and flowers and never paint Aboriginal Symbols, dreamtime stories, law business or any other symbolism.” Helen Ansell
