My family are Yamatji people, my grandfather born in Northampton. Nanna was part of the Stolen Generation from Australia’s northwest. l am still on my journey of discovery, learning culture and trying to find my Nanna’s true identity, as our Aboriginal heritage was kept hidden for decades. Some journeys were exciting as another piece to the puzzle is found, but every journey was extremely emotional and sad. As a child I found my calm under the Melaleuca tree in our garden, where I was connected to Country. I am an Aboriginal woman, contemporary artist inspired by my grandparents’ strength.
