This painting is about a pattern I naturally started drawing and painting as a teenager. I later realized, it looked like some of my old peoples’ tree carvings. For me this pattern represents heritage and a spiritual connection to my old people, it also represents the Murray river and our land. Our tree carvings were memorials for our passed people and they honoured their stories. Through my art I use this pattern as a symbol of my heritage, of my people’s strength and for life.
