About the work

As a Brisbane girl, born and bred, I grew up travelling around properties in south-east Queensland visiting family. These experiences and memories have strongly Influenced my art. 

Conversely, my Mary MacKillop College community in Nundah, my childhood, and the organic Brisbane landscape, make up my identity as a young emerging artist. 

Through this self-portrait, I have visually communicated this connection I have to the native plant life of my home city.
