Linda Jackson's Rainbow Menagerie
I live in the rainforest.
I have a spectacular tail that I raise over my head when I sing and dance.
A kaleidoscopic introduction to native Australian animals and a celebration of the rainbow. Linda Jackson's virbrant colours and bold patterns bring this iconic designer's spectacular colour and form to a new generation.
