I walked along the ‘Great River Walk’ by the Nepean River, Sydney, Australia. It was a very hot summer and I was camped by the river for an artist residency at the Penrith Regional Gallery & The Lewers Bequest. I did lots of drawings, collages, and an animation. It inspired a series of drawings and an animation.
In this drawing, I was thinking about our capacity to dream and be the best courageous and free-spirited person we can be, through personal transformation and connection to nature for healing. Ultimately to transform into something new like a butterfly and shake off the old flaky stuff.
