It's was a beautiful morning hanging up and signing this commissioned piece for Michael and Stella. In their amazing new home.
I sign on the back of all my paintings with my hand print becasue. You want a piece of art that touches you, that moves you and we express so much through our hands and we can create so much with them. The can build, destroy, create, hold carry, mold, sculpt and touch you and like a piece of out it's moves your heart and spirit and can impress on you powerful emotions. So that is why I sign with my hands for there is nothing more personal then our finger prints.
So blessed to have been given this opportunity of such creative freedom. To create this painting for Michael and Stella.
And welcoming into there family. And the strong connection we now have. #art#family#blessed

This is the trailer for ‘Black Day, Sun Rises, Blood Runs’ a brand new film and multimedia exhibit opening tonight in the First Peoples exhibition that uncovers the hidden history of massacres of Aboriginal people in Victoria. We are very proud of the hard work of the Bunjilaka staff, who worked in close consultation with the First Peoples Yulendj Group to produce this very important project.
Today was such an inspiring, emotional and empowering day! ✊
Listening to such strong Indigenous leaders talk history, country and the current crisis we have in Aus with the mistreatment and abuse of our brothers and sisters in prisons and in juvie as well as other abuses of power by our government, was moving and invoked such a strong sense of pride in me for my community.
We also had the opportunity to hear from Black Lives Matter co-founder Patrisse, the founder of the Canadian chapter of BLM Rodney and Dawn who started her own chapter in Longbeach. It was so inspiring listening to them tell their history and the reasons they got in to/created BLM.. it really made me think about what more i can do to create awarenes of the atrocities happening in Australia at the moment.
So thankful for the opportunity to meet and listen to these AMAZING people ✊

Last day on Warlpiri country. Been an amazing 8 weeks in the Northern Territory. Grateful to the Purple House for giving me an opportunity to work and make a difference for end stage renal failure patients. Have met the best people and had some really great experiences. This organisation goes above and beyond and I'm glad I have been lucky enough to be apart of it. Definitely feel I have grown as a person and proud as an Aboriginal nurse to have achieved my life long goal of nursing our mob in remote areas! 🖤💛❤️Next stop is Alice Springs and a few days off to see the sights ✊🏾👣
