The Artist

Ruth Davys

I am a proud Wiradjuri woman. Teaching my culture has always been a part of me and I’m passionate about passing this culture on to my
children. I think it is important for our people to know where we came from, to learn from our ancestors, Elders and to pass this knowledge on to our younger ones.
