• Finding Our Heart

Continuing my ongoing relationship with Hardie Grant publishing, the chance presented to illustrate this book authored by the great Thomas Mayor was an immeasurably honourable opportunity.

It became a re visiting of a career long practice and consolidating that practice into one text. A twenty year artistic painting sojourn, re addressed from the figurative origins of pencil / ink / watercolour & finally acrylic paints on various surfaces. The origins never reach their ‘use by date’.

These are the illustrated direct effects of Colonialism upon a land later titled ‘Australia’.

Of a highly esteemed modern day warrior, utilising the incredible power of literary prowess. A book that reaches far & wide and reintroduces the relatively young demise of First Nations cultures yet requests the empathy of the oppressors only two hundred & thirty two years into the oppression.
