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.

Sunshine Coast Council acknowledges the Sunshine Coast Country, home of the Kabi Kabi peoples and the Jinibara peoples, the Traditional Custodians, whose lands and waters we all now share.
We commit to working in partnership with the Traditional Custodians and the broader First Nations (Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander) community to support self-determination through economic and community development.
