Awards and Past Works
NAIDOC 2016 Artwork Winner
My artwork titled "Songlines" was selected as the winner and used throughout Australia to celebrate NAIDOC week.
“Dreaming stories are presented as elaborate song cycles (Songlines) that relate to a specific place, group or individual.
Dreamtime ancestors made Songlines as part of the creation story to provide a map of the landscape, and represent the relationships between the lands, the sea and the people.
The painting represents all of the songlines coming together to create our nation. You can see how they criss-cross the land as they run east, west, north, south, and diagonally across the country to track the journeys of our ancestors”.
