Artist Statement

Just as the vibrant colours of this ancient land can be breathtakingly beautiful, equally is the innocent radiance of its youth.  I've chosen to apply the traditional technique to this portrait to convey the connection our culture has to the land and its elements. The cools of the waterholes and river systems, waterfalls and lakes, in complete balance with the warm sun, red dirt, mountains and rocks. This is our wholeness, our equilibrium, our balance. This is our Radiance.
