Ruby Hunt’s House, Maria Island is a hand printed reduction linocut in oil inks, on Fabriano Artistico paper.

Any visitor to the Maria Island township will see a tiny cottage on a hill overlooking the township and the bay. It once belonged to Ruby Hunt, who operated the island’s two way radio linked with Hobart. As I wandered around the area I imagined what it must have been like to live in that little house, watching the ferry come and go and the landscape change with the weather and seasons. Was she lonely, or did she love living within the serene beauty that surrounded her home?
