The following works were created during a two month internship at the Tapatjatjaka Art and Crafts Centre as part of the National Art School’s Aboriginal Art Centre Internship (AACI), 2021. A huge thank you goes to the donors Mark Tedschi and Sharon Tofler for financially supporting this opportunity. Additionally, I thank Jane Easton at Tapatjatjaka Art and Crafts Centre for facilitating my stay and to everyone in the community who made my time there welcoming and enriching.
In addition to working at Tapatjatjaka Art and Crafts Centre, I taught three art classes at Titjikala School and alongside MacYouth (MacDonnell Regional Council Youth Services).
I am immensely grateful for this experience in Titjikala and pay my deepest respects to the Arrernte, Pitjantjatjara and Luritja peoples (among others). I extend this gratitude to all Indigenous cultures and custodians of this land to which I practice on – past, present and emerging. Always was and always will be Aboriginal land.
