” My work is a blend of all the places I have been, the people i met and loved, the music I have danced, the books I have read and the art that i see and inspire me and keep the passion alive . It is a privilege to be standing on Bundjalung country, I am grateful with all my heart for being welcomed to such a beautiful corner of this planet, it is an honour to share this experience in this magical place. I respectfully acknowledge the past and present traditional owners of this land the Bundjalung people. Together we acknowledge the contributions of Aboriginal Australians and non-Aboriginal Australians to the education of us and all children and people in this country we all live in and share together “.
