I was introduced to silk painting in Darwin by a neighbour. Up until this time my art was very detailed and exact. I found that painting in a new medium gave my art a new focus. Firstly, I became very symbolic in my design which freed my style up. Secondly, I became more experimental as I tried to control this new medium.
It was quite a liberating time for me and the art began to reflect the learning that was part of taking on a new culture.
Thankyou Darwin for this liberation.
