'AUSTRALIA -Images and Inspiration combines the talents of two very creative Australians -author Mocco Wollert and visual artist Glenise Clelland. Australia's vastness has inspired many other artists and authors but the words and images in this book are as diverse as the two women who created them. Each painting is different, every word meaningful.
'Mocco Wollert is an award winning author with over 200 published works. She has lived and worked in Northern Australia and now lives in Brisbane, Queensland, Australia. Glenise Clelland has won many prizes and has been exhibiting her paintings in Australia and overseas for the past 35 years. Her work is in Government , Corporate and private collections.
'Glenise has spent many enjoyable years travelling and working in the Pacific Islands and Northern Australia. She now lives in Noosa, Queensland, Australia. Glenise always travels with a sketch book in hand to record moments glimpsed and unbelievable colours of Australia which she now shares in her paintings.
'Both Mocco and Glenise have lived and travelled throughout Australia and this successful collaboration celebrates their personal and unique response to their individual experiences. This book covers vast distances from the tropical rainforests in the north to the dry open plains of central Australia and the rugged cliffs of the Kimberley, to the delights of the Great Barrier Reef. All Australians, and anyone who has travelled in Australia, will identify with the images and words in this book.
'Glenise's landscapes are inspired by Nature but are not a photographic representation of what she sees. Mocco's sensitive and inspiring words show her connection to the Australian landscape she loves. Both are passionate about expressing their love for their country in their individual way.
'This is Mocco and Glenise's third collaboration. Together Mocco and Glenise have produced two other books bringing together their individual talents and vision. This is a book for all Australians and art lovers and those who have travelled in Australia and those that dream of travelling to Australia.' (Publication summary)
