In 2013 I was awarded the amazing opportunity to undertake a 10-week internship at Ikuntji Artists. The internship was provided through The National Art School’s Aboriginal Art Centre Internship program. As a practising artist, the opportunity to explore indigenous culture and art practice in the birthplace of the 1970’s aboriginal art movement was invaluable. It was an experience that not only influenced my art-making and identity but my understanding of Australian history and identity. The people and friendships that I met and made throughout my time in Haasts Bluff will always be with me.
