    Design

    This design represents my journey through life so far, on this journey I have added to my knowledge about my culture, heritage, and my family’s history. It depicts the connections between the cultural knowledge I have been taught by family members along my journey.

    The sun rays reaches out over country and touches all of my family and people. The rivers and waterholes sustain all life, with many across Country being special and sacred places. Yilamara is the stem of a wild orchid, its flower is close to the rays to gain energy and power to continue my journey of connecting and learning.

Russell currently lives and works on Bundjalung Country, NSW.  He is a skilled painter, sculptor and digital artist that has refined his traditional style and has developed a contemporary representation.
