Bernadette Boscacci is an Australian artist based in North Queensland.
She works across multiple media and her approach is typically interdisciplinary – interweaving her studio-based practice with her professional arts and environmental education and community cultural development work.
Bernadette’s creative enquiries explore the following themes: Nature, culture, the metaphysical, connectivity, myth and mortality.
She is also a passionate landcare volunteer who runs an urban, riparian regeneration project in her home suburb of Garbutt, Townsville.
In 2012 and 2013, Bernadette worked on three main works, part of a collection situated along the Ethno-botanical Trail and Historical Timeline on Townsville’s Jezzine Barracks / Kissing Point / Garabarra redevelopment.

The artist acknowledges the traditional owners of country throughout Australia and their continuing connection to land, culture and community. In particular, the Gurambilbarra Wulgurukaba and Bindal peoples of Townsville, whose land on which she lives and works, paying respect to their ancestors and elders past, present and emerging.
