About the artwork:
I was at a crossroads in my artistic practice.
I wanted to instil more meaning into my art by spending more time immersed in and painting the natural world and the things that matter to me.
Ellie set up the Merriwa gallery as a not for profit enterprise and describes it as “a celebration of creativity”. She is a mentor to the local community that includes indigenous artists and teenagers.
Whilst I painted locals dropped by to chat.
I wanted to instil this painting with her quiet resolve.
