Olive Pink: Artist, Activist & Gardener showcases an exquisite collection of original paintings of Central Australian flora and artfully weaves her beautifully written biography of Miss Pink’s life with faithfully reproduced memorabilia.
Miss Pink was ahead of her time with her fierce independence and resolve in support of Aboriginal people of Central Australia. As well as being an outspoken advocate for the rights of Arrente and Warlpiri people, Miss Pink’s deep love of the Central Australian landscape drove her burning desire to study, illustrate and preserve and live among the beauty she perceived. This in turn lead to the eventual realisation of her “Big Idea”, the formal establishment of a Central Australian Flora Reserve in Alice Springs; as Olive Pink Botanic Garden.
