2016 Winner Shinju Art Awards:
This piece is a picture of myself, I painted the top half of my face to represent our connection to culture and land, who we are and the blood that has spilt over history. I painted the bottom of my face white to represent white culture and glued the zipper on, this represents being silenced and having to conform to white society.
kaleidoscope World of Fashion "Bring the Painting Alive"
This video is of the kaleidoscope World of Fashion "Bring the Painting Alive" premier held at Boola Bardip WA Museum. This is the moment Karen and I had been eagerly anticipating! Here we have the stunning Aboriginal model Miss Simone Penina Ware bringing this gown justice. The was she walked down this runway, demanding attention was absolutely breathtaking. This was my very first experience in the world of fashion and the talent was absolutely incredible. I was so incredibly proud to have the opportunity to be apart of it.
Boola Bardip Gown
Here it is folks, I finally had some time to put together a very quick video! If only I could paint this fast lol As you can see, the items are already sewn, ever single piece! From the pieces that made the bow (they already had boning in them to keep there shape) to the ribbons 🎀 As I mentioned before this has 60+hrs of work in it but I had mentioned that I only had 2wks, along with full time work to pull this off!! With no room for error!! Phew thank goodness it did!! @karenelizabethyoung & I had not worked together before, we didn’t even know each other BUT she put her faith in me and away I went😁 🖤💛❤️This is for you Mum, your spirit soared in me with every brush stroke🖤💛❤️ #aboriginalartist #aboriginalfashion #perthfashion #handpaintingmaterial #broomegirlsforever #fashion #bakerboy
