Mirra Whale is an artist who is drawn toward relationships that are formed between the man-made and the natural environment. Hill End's landscape, with its scarred hillsides and sheer mine shafts, offers dramatic inspiration for the artist. Whale plans to create a series of paintings and drawings focused around notions of place and belonging that explore the history of early settlers to the region as well as Hill End's present day community.
