Blackhearth Mural by Birgette Hansen

Birgitte Hansen

It turns out this structure was actually the artists residence and studio. I didn't know this while standing out the front happily snapping away. The mural covered the entire front façade which I would have captured if not for a pesky car that obscured the mural. 

The mural is titled. 'Mary quite contrary, how does your garden grow' and is well kept despite being painted back in 2001.

The artist has since moved to Newcastle. I don't know who currently owns the premise but it's nice that the mural has been left intact. Birgette has a second mural in Katoomba which is quite prominent titled 'Mountain Boulders'
