About the Artwork
Artist: Janet Essley
Title: Diverse waterbirds sharing habitat in Roebuck Bay, northwest Australia / Australian Aboriginal bark painting style
This beautiful artwork comes from Red Knots: A Cultural Cartography of a Migratory Bird’s Annual Journey, conceived by Janet Essley in collaboration with the biologist Lee Tibbitts in order to raise awareness of Red Knots and other long-distance migrants in the East Asian-Australasian Flyway. Janet carefully researched art styles from the different cultures in countries where the Red Knot spends time during its yearly migration, to produce a glorious collection of original work.
