Garden on the Hill, Maria Island is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

The small, circular garden that inspired this artwork was planted on the hillside above the Darlington Township in Maria Island National Park. It is situated just outside the ruins of a house that would once have overlooked the whole township, the bay, and across the water to mainland Tasmania.

It was probably once a neat little garden, planted with flowering succulents that could survive the harsh conditions and salty breeze from the water. It has now run wild, outliving the house itself and still flowering every year, long after the people who planted it have gone away.
