My artwork is about acknowledging Indigenous Australian ways to live off the environment,  and the happiness, culture and history they bring for all Australians. It also displays the Aboriginal Flag which represent 3 significant parts and colours of their culture as well as displaying the beauty of an Australian landscape, cared for by Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people. My artwork relates to reconciliation because it shows an Aboriginal family living around some of Australia’s environment and that they are still enjoying and using Indigenous ways of living. I believe that my artwork speaks deeply from the heart because I have always been passionate about justice and freedom for the Aboriginal people. Therefore, my artwork is speaking and displaying from my heart.

Reconciliation means… Acknowledge what has happened in the past and that we will move together as one in trust, justice, freedom and equality.
