Heart and soul of the 'Whale Tail House'.
No matter what your interests may be, there is sure to be something to delight you on this isolated island, we call home.
Local artist Dianne Blake shares with us a little of her King Island:
As an artist living on King Island I draw my inspiration from the environment that has many guises and moods. From the quirky melaleuca trees to the vast and varied geological forms. The endemic and migratory birds, the wild oceans, the rolling hills, the changing light, the seasonal colours to the deeply embedded energies, they all stimulate my creativity.
To walk these coastlines and fossick along the shoreline in a landscape devoid of crowds brings solace and a connection to place. I am a painter, a printmaker, a sculptor, who enjoys photography and surrounded by a creative community.
Our home was filmed by Australian Grand Designs - known as the “Whale Tail House” my husband Andrew is also a sculptor, printmaker and painter.
We lived and worked in North East Arnhem Land at Yirrkala at Buku Larrnggay
Mulka - arts centre for many years before moving to King Island.
