Story: Dabil

I’m always pulling inspiration from my surroundings. My love for the water is one of the best things I enjoy painting. Dabil means water in Jandai language. Capturing the motion of the moving current by painting these lines of rich blues and greens. When I’m feeling discounted to country at times It’s the first place I want to go to the beach to reconnect. 

The flowing movement metaphor of water is like our culture and language continuing on into the future. We will always carry on a connection to our home lands, passing knowledge and customs down to our younger generations. Caring for country is important because of the significance of saving our water ways and oceans for years to come.
