Utilising my skills as an artist and teacher, my Sand paintings are a dynamic way of explaining my family’s cultural beliefs.
Drawing from our traditions as desert people, I am able to convey to the audience our knowledge of the cyclic elements of nature and the spirituality of the Dreamtime during the creative process.
Scaled to suite the venue, these vibrant images in coloured sand are a popular attraction at festivals, schools, conferences and the like.
As I explain the meaning of this form of living art to the audience, I encourage and guide them to participate in its creation.
The completed Sand painting is exposed to the elements and allowed to gradually fade and return to the earth. In keeping with the concept of impermanence.
