These prints are recalling a family story from Gidji Marra spring at Kalbarri in Western Australia.

Starting with a vinyl cut relief,  then a jigsaw method used to produce a variety of different states of the print.

“From 9 to 13, I can remember going to Gidgi Marra. We used to fill up a couple of ten gallon drums with water for Dad. We’d use an enamel mug and a billy can made from an empty fruit  tin. We used to clear the water lily leaves away with our hands and then dip the mug in to get the water to fill up the drum. We had to remove the leaves carefully. We weren’t allowed to damage them.”
