Brenda Haas Botanical Artist – Devonport
(North West )

I came to botanical art in the year 2000 and have since then increased my fascination and desire to learn more about the world of plants. Our native flora holds a special place in my heart because we must learn to recognise if we are to save these unique and often threatened species. I give classes as numbers demand.

Colours of Tasmania

The spectacular landscape of the East Coast of Tasmania where I live, inspires my artwork and the Polymer Clay & Resin handcrafted items and jewellery that I create.
