Josephine Kay

I was born in Ballarat, however although I was aware I was Aboriginal, I did not get an understanding of cultural practices, and they were not handed down.

As I got older, and had my own children, I began to discover more about my culture and love to teach my children about their Aboriginal heritage.

I love doing my artwork.  It gives me a sense of connection and healing to my past and to  my culture.  It is relaxing and therapeutic for me and I’m looking forward to getting better and better, while at the same time, becoming a stronger in my Aboriginal knowledge.
