When I walk across the dry river bed, climb a shelf of warm, red rock, float in the azure blue of a Kimberley ocean I am reminded of my why.......
I am reminded of a people that stood here before me, and I always pause to wander over the stories that I have heard. These are stories of grief and loss that have left a resounding eco across this country and deep within the soul of its people.
For many years this ancient land has been the inspiration for the work that I create. I now feel the need to pause within my artistic journey to give a nod of recognition to the traditional owners of the country that has been so generous to me.
