"There is so much about Brisbane I love…. Its abundance of colourful flora that continually changes throughout the year. Its perfumes. It’s intensity of light. Having to respond to the sub-tropical climate Brisbane people are relaxed, unpretentious and open. These lifestyle traits are also reflected in the Queenslander home and I think my work responds to the joy of living in such a place." ~ Debra Hood

As the primary focus of her work, local artist Debra Hood has spent the past 20 years obsessing over the iconic 'Queenslander' home. Her art undoubtedly stirs something deep in the heart of all Banana Benders.
