Meet the Creative Minds :

Agnes Wotton Indigenous Artist :

I’ve lived on Palm Island Bwgcolman, QLD all my life. My mother who is an Indinji woman gave birth to me in 1971 to my Father, a Yalanji Man. I

’ve been painting for 17 years and got my first big breakthrough at the Cairns Indigenous Art Fair in 2019. Art is a way of expressing myself and escaping from reality. It gives me peace of mind, and I would like to use my work to help others also find their dreams.

Sea Anemone Abstract :

“Sea Anemone is part of a series about my home, Palm Island. It conveys the beautiful movement of the waves that slowly move through the house of the anemone. It also captures the inner peace of one’s soul. The red and white elements represent the clown fish that lives in the anemone’s house”.

Spiritual Transformation Abstract Butterfly:

The butterfly is symbolic to the Australian Indigenous people – as it’s believed that the butterfly represents spiritual transformation. Butterfly’s also bring hope and happiness. Personally, I paint butterflies to represent self, my connection to the land, my spiritual journey and how far I have come.

Spiritual Transformation Cross Hatch Butterfly:

The butterfly is symbolic to the Australian Indigenous people – as it’s believed that the butterfly represents spiritual transformation. Butterfly’s also bring hope and happiness. Personally, I paint butterflies to represent self, my connection to the land, my spiritual journey and how far I have come.

Jo Wilson Indigenous Artist  :

“I’m Jo Wilson, a First Nations woman & contemporary Aboriginal Artist. I am a proud descendant of the Ngemba people of Brewarrina (Northwestern NSW). I paint intuitively and through ritual, this connects me to my ancestors. I love to create my own dreaming, depicting healing rainbows, but often also include my love of the moon, sun, stars & universe in my works”.

Father Moon Sky:

This piece depicts the moon & stars & expanding universe. The moon in our Aboriginal culture is a man and has many different meanings among our First Nations of Australia.

Walking on Country :

I created this piece using many colours in the brush strokes. Each brush stroke representing many different tracks made by mob across Country.

Seeds of Life:

This painting represents birth in its many different forms of native flora & fauna.

Creating Waves:

These lines depict the waves and patterns Mother Earth makes on land & sea.
