About

I paint Indigenous portraits because I am proud of my ancestry‚ my partners ancestry and to know that my children have such a connection to this beautiful land Australia. The first people are a beautiful people that should be acknowledged and I wish to capture the beauty within and when you see there beauty you see the beauty of this land and how we should protect the culture and our land. I paint in acrylic on canvas and use a vanish for a gloss effect that brings out the inner soul.
