About the artwork:
"Rebirth" pays homage to Jenny's Place, the women who founded it & the women who found refuge & salvation within its walls. I have expressed one woman representing all. Due to the 45 year support of Jenny's place, these women are able to go on to be necessary contributors of building & maintaining the Hunter region as mothers, teachers, doctors, friends & many more. They no longer have to carry the trauma of domestic violence alone & are able to live freely as they should throughout the Hunter.
