"This story is about my great grandmother - my mothers, mothers mother!
This country is sacred, warm and beautiful. The colours and symbols represent everything about the land of where my grandmother was born and raised - bushtucker, bush flowers, waterholes, love, marriage, dancing, singing, and womens ceremonies are all connected into the painting and more.
The touching bases of the colours are changed in so many different ways to inspire the look as this country is so meaningful we love to share the thoughts of our minds through art by giving it that beautiful desirable look. As our culture is beyond gifted and to share what I can through this way means the world to me and I’m forever grateful to share."
- Khatija Possum
