I paint my Country, Amaroo. I paint about bush medicine and the old ways, when people get sick we boil the bush medicine to washing babies and we drink it when we get the flu. Our Grandmothers teach us to find bush medicine through painting and collecting bush medicine out bush. I have always loved to paint.
The purple flowers in my paintings are tropical speedwell which are used on skin conditions like scabies and also made into a tonic for drinking. The yellow flowers are pretty flowers that grow in the country after rain and the purple flowers are bush tomato.
