The painting is an abstract Aboriginal landscape from Wellington, on the banks of the river where the old Aboriginal camp used to be. The area is of great significance for me because my ancestors lived in the area and having recently visited the camp, I felt a particular connection to it. The painting is called 'She Makes Her Own Way' because despite the continuous intervention and development of the area, nature continues to make its way and so do the spirits of my old people.
The area is now a heritage listed site called 'the old Aboriginal camp'. It is one of the largest sites in the Wellington area and has archaeological as well as ethnographic significance.
I am a Wiradjuri artist from the Wellington area of NSW. My work is Aboriginal contemporary with an emphasis on the use of color to convey my cultural connection and my life experiences.
My art is deeply rooted in my experiences as a Wiradjuri man, a father, a son and a member of the urban Aboriginal community of Sydney’s inner west. Within the urban context, I prefer to produce pieces which reflect my environment. I use recycled materials which come from an urban environment in my art. This is based on the Aboriginal tradition of only using what you need from your environment.
In March 2018, I had the honour of being made a member of Boomalli Aboriginal Art Co-op.
