Lucy Culliton Carina’s bogong moth jumper

oil on board

90 x 70.1 cm

This jumper was designed and knitted by my aunt Carina, who was a biologist. I’m not a knitter myself, but I felt like I made every stitch in paint. The palette of browns and pinks are my favourite colours to paint. Carina died in 2007. Her picture jumpers told stories, and I plan to paint all of them. This is the first in line.
