Artist: Shara Delaney
Artwork: Mothers Country

There’s also my maternal grandmother Marion Violet Close nee Currie who married into the close family. My Nan is 95 years old and still going strong. She’s originally from Jerico/Bunya Mountains but an Elder of our community Minjerribah.

This painting is our many family groups on country past and present that keep growing. The circles bounded together, for stronger relationships. Colours chosen to represent our women, with touches of blue to reflect Quandamooka Waters.

My mother told me our Grannies gathered wildflowers for special occasions, for decorations in their homes and for the graves.
