Wiradjuri Woman

The Wiradjuri Woman was burnt on the Possum Skin Cloak for the opening ceremony of the Commonwealth Games in 2006 and now I have created a sculpture emerging out of this tree stump – as if a spirit is breaking free.

"I am a proud Wiradjuri woman. All of my work is based on traditional Wiradjuri stories handed down to me by my Grandmother and Elders of the Community in which I interpret in a contemporary way.

The stories attached to my art are about the land, animals, bush tucker and the river."
