When Wise Women Whisper

Exhibition dates: 1st August – 30th September 2020
Location: Biloela Hospital, QLD

I’ve been drawing imaginary women for years – ever since I decided anyone calling themselves an artist really
couldn’t claim not to be able to draw a face. These women are imagined, not intended to portray anyone one in
particular, but rather to give life to an idea or a possibility. They always seem to have a look about them suggesting
that if they were to speak, it would be worth listening to. Combining my passion for catching poems with my love for
bringing these characters to life, the poems are an attempt to share the wisdom that looks ready to spoken.

Scanning the QR code beside each poem with your smartphone will take you to a recording I made just for you to
listen to the poem being read.

Exhibition dates: 13th June – 31st July 2020
Location: Biloela Hospital, QLD

An exploration of cultural connection to land while in isolation. I am a Aborignial, Torres Strait and South Sea Islander woman. I have strong connection between the sea the rainforest and the bush. I have been inspired by the colours of those environments. Through out this project I have used art as away to reground myself and focus on my wellbeing. Working and creating amidst the global pandemic of COVID-19 and with the travel restrictions from community and family retaining my connection to country has been really important to me.
