This painting represents Mothers, Grandmothers, Aunties and sisters. Aboriginal women past, present and future.
Their love, guidance, compassion, wisdom, and leadership that is shared and imparted as mentors, protectors, and educators. It is because of her we can.
The lines connecting the painting are the genes and traits we inherit from our mother.
The pink flowers that are scattered throughout the painting represent the continuation of women imparting their love, guidance, knowledge, understanding, compassion and the important roles they played in our past, present and future.
