My first piece of art

tjilari-art

This may very well have been one of my first pieces of art. I would have made it at kindy in 1978. Mum found it while sorting through some of Grandmas old pictures. Arn’t Grandma’s awesome! She held onto it for all these years! I’m thinking of incorporating some of it into a new website design.

Notice the name “Tjilari” at the bottom of the picture? That was my aboriginal name, given to me because someone had recently died with the name “Matthew” when we arrived in Central Australia.
