Annabel Nowlan was one of five sisters who grew up on a large sheep farm in Central NSW, believing as girls, they would never get to run the farm.
However, when their mother died and their father couldn't cope, the girls put to practice what they'd done all their lives. They looked after the sheep buying and selling at the Cootamundra sheep sales, organising shearers and classing the wool themselves.
Meanwhile, Annabel also followed her dream of becoming an artist. She now lives in Melbourne and her work, informed by her life on the land, is sought after by major galleries and art lovers around the country. She is passionate about this history of the land, ecology and Aboriginal culture.
