Diana Boyer kept sketchbooks recording everyday life around the farm on Bobbara Creek, in the Binalong district of southern New South Wales. The National Museum of Australia now houses some of them.
Apparently she carried pencils, ink, brushes and watercolours everywhere so she could record what she saw on the spot. Trained as a botanist in Argentina Diana Boyer’s observed the property’s changing landscape, native plants and local animals, so that her sketchbooks reveal the how climate change impacted on the environment.
In 2006 Diana Boyer created Time Change, an animation using a series of small watercolour painting some of which are on display.
In 2007 the Boyers left Bobbara Creek and now live in the UK. The sketchbooks and artworks were donated to the National Museum of Australia by Diana Boyer in 2008
