At Sea – Shark Bay Crabs
Sue Helmot Artist

‘At Sea – Shark Bay Blue Swimmer Crabs’ is the latest painting in my Gascoyne Food series as Artist-in-Residence for the Gascoyne Food Council. It’s part of the line up for my upcoming exhibition ‘From the Source – A Landscape of Food’ at the Carnarvon Community Art Space from 6 – 18 August during the Gascoyne Food Festival.

Thank you so much to Mitch and the crew @westcoastcrabs for allowing me to check out their new season catch of Blue Swimmer Crabs and to take loads of research pics in preparation for this painting. It’s been a pleasure to meet the hard working people behind the food during this project. I couldn’t resist sneaking one of them into a painting. Must do it again!

I am really looking forward to sharing all of the paintings that I have been working on over the last few months. There’s still a few more that I’m keen to get done! All of the artworks will be available for purchase. Please direct message me or email at if you would like to be added to the mailing list for the exhibition.
