Shortly after her training in England, Lesley Meaney migrated to Australia in 1969, as a young art teacher. These 366 pages are a visual diary of her 50 years in Terra Australis – of her curiosity and of her evolution in responding to this country. In her own words, Lesley states “Being Australian is not about making a decision or even choosing: it’s about becoming. My journey towards feeling Australian has been a slow process: my immersion into the landscape, especially my five years in the North West, has been a partner in that journey. I now feel I have taken root , like one of our eucalypts – trees which, I think, represent the soul of our sunburnt country”. This hardcover and stitched 25cm x 30cm coffee table book clearly reveals Lesley Meaney as a technician , a master of a number of crafts , which she employs in her work – making it a fantastic gift.
