Our very existence in this beautiful country “Girt my Sea” is young as a Nation but old & rich in the rightful owners, our Aboriginal peoples.

Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander heritage is an important part of Australian heritage. Evidence of the occupation of Australia by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people dates back more than 60,000 years. As well as historically important, Indigenous heritage is of continuing significance, creating and maintaining continuous links with the people and the land.

Places that hold great meaning and significance to Indigenous people include:

*places associated with dreaming stories depicting the laws of the land and how people should behave

*places that are associated with their spirituality

*places where other cultures came into contact with Indigenous people

*places that are significant for more contemporary uses

Since my passion began in photography, I gradually grew another passion for the Arts, namely our Indigenous Art. This floral finger painting is an example of the beauty & unique heritage relating to all works by our Aboriginal Artists.

Hope you Enjoy!
