Reckless Romantics is a universal story this new body of work inspired by the romantic notion of the seductive beauty of the Australian bush and examines our deep fear of the untamed. How quickly the romance can turn sour. (Grimm’s fairy tails, Picnic at hanging Rock, the fires of Yarloop, the Gruffelo,
a convict history).
