“This piece was created in 2022 after I had attended a Straight Talk summit in Canberra. The stars represent our ancestors who walked before us. The women are the 60 inspirational woman I met in 2022. Then you have my connection to the water. My connection to my family. My connection to mob, and down the bottom is my connection to lands we live on.”
