The First Australians

For five years we had the honour of living and working in the Aboriginal & Torres Strait Island communities of the NPA (Northern Peninsula Area) in Far North Queensland, Australia. This series of paintings is my attempt to show the beauty and strengths I saw in these lovely people.  I hold them in high regard and consider many in these communities our friends and family.
