1.  How would you describe the art that you make?

I am a visual storyteller who experiments with a range of mediums and processes, so to narrow down my style is quite difficult. My work is very emotive, and greatly inspired by cultural motifs and beliefs from our own cultural heritage, and by Indigenous beliefs which connect land and spirit.
