STORYLINE ABOUT THE ARTWORK
This artwork is about the strength of a woman and her gift of nurturing. My mothers are my biggest inspiration. In Tiwi culture, I call my mum's sisters mum, calling me daughter. There is a softness to the chaos, which my mothers do for their families. My mothers build the bond of the family. People have often told me that my mum's kindness is her weakness, but her compassion is one of her greatest strengths.
