About the Print

The Spotted Pardalote is one of the smallest of all Australian birds. Although moderately common in all of the reasonably fertile parts of Australia, it is seldom seen closely enough for identification. Pairs make soft, whistling wheet-wheet calls to one another throughout the day, which carry for quite a distance. One of the difficulties in locating a pardalote is that the contact call is two calls: an initial call and an almost instant response, and thus can come from two different directions. They nest in a long underground hole inside a riverbank or shaded slope.

Isopogon is a shrub of the family Proteaceae that is endemic to Western Australia’s southwest from Albany and the Stirling Range eastwards to the vicinity of Cheyne Bay.

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
