Penny Leech 1947-2018 was a gifted botanical and natural history artist. Many of her detailed works are in world- wide collections. She lived in Denmark, Western Australia for 14 years painting every day using local specimens which included her favourite eucalypts. It was in Denmark Leech reached her zenith. Knowing it would have thrilled her, Jennie Partington, Penny’s partner decided to set up an annual art prize. 

Western Australia is well known for its wildflowers, yet does not have an exclusive art award dedicated to its unique flora and fungi.

With collaboration from the Denmark Community Foundation Incorporated [DCF] and many others this award has come to fruition.
