Artist’s statement

My body of work aims to redesign the boundaries of what Aboriginal art can be. I believe that it is not the styles and materials that an artist uses that matter, but rather the belief that what they are doing is culturally significant. I aim to change the way in which people see Indigenous art and to show the interconnection between people as well as the connection of people to place.
