As a botanist, Nita uses this knowledge to ‘play’ with botanical illustration and move her works towards the modern form.  Pen and ink is currently her favourite medium but on occasion colour creeps in and energises  the piece. Graphic design fills much of her spare time at present in the form of logos and china pieces for volunteer organisations. Nita enjoys offering her love of line and spaces for the enjoyment of others. Often she works along with other artists. For example the fine china pieces for Myall Park Botanic Garden began as a joint design but she continued on alone with further pieces and design refinement.

Also creeping into Nita’s works are representatives of the fauna of Australia. Emus and echidnas especially appear often on her studio table.

Her paintings have been exhibited in Australia, England and New Zealand. Her work is in public and private collections around the world.
