Awakakal, Wonnarua & Bundjlung Artist
"My practice represents the multi-layered history of our people and our intrinsic connection to country. I have been caring for country for most of my life and have a reciprocal relationship with the land. Ochres are living, sentient beings, filled with energy & spirit and hold a knowing that is learned over deep time.
I acknowledge and honour the connection that my people and all traditional owners have to this ancient medium. I respect and understand that
each different nation/clan group has its own history, traditional cultural practices, protocols and spiritual beliefs with ochres.
These ochre stories are the palette of my cultural expression and I hope they can evoke and resonate with your own connection to country and how you walk upon it."
