Bantimita – Message Stick series 10
This artwork is symbolic of Aboriginal message sticks, depicted by the vertical carved lines within the work. Messages were painted and inscribed on a stick, which was then transported by hand. Typical messages inscribed on the stick by painting, carving or burning would be announcements of ceremonies, disputes, invitations, warnings, meetings, events and happenings.

I enjoy providing an opportunity to communicate with you personally on artworks of interests and their significance and story. You can chat to me direct by clicking on the blue message us button on the lower right of the screen. My hope and vision for my online Gallery is to connect with each prospective buyer, allowing for interchange and sharing around your individual art needs, as would occur in a gallery or exhibition.
Reflective in style to many traditional engraved artworks found throughout the Hunter Region and Wonaruah country, my artworks are connected to country in style and design through the use of a sand based medium. The highly textured pieces embody the age old sandstone engraved artworks created by our ancestors and add a whole new dimension to the works.
It is an honour to have my artwork integrated into your living or work space and I am available to you to ensure the acquisition of my works is a gratifying and pleasurable experience.
