About the artwork: Delicate and simply beautiful, fragile yet able to withstand the harsh climate - the desert daisies are a wonderful sight in the red sand. My small hands grasping the bush and picking perfect little bunches to admire later. They carpet the ground and I am reminded of the beauty of Country.
About the artist: Emma Stenhouse is a proud Ngarrindjeri woman and a contemporary indigenous artist on a journey of self discovery, deepening her connection with her family, exploring her heritage, and inspired by her love of Country. Emma encapsulates her knowledge in her storyworks
formed by her deep relationship to land and guided by strong female role models in her community.
Growing up in Broken Hill, Outback New South Wales, Emma intrinsically draws on her connection to the arid lands of the bush. This is often evident in her use of colours inspired by the red dirt, and the simple concepts of nurturing nature and to continue its growth and sustainability. She now resides by the beach and explores the shades of green & blue reflected in the region. The lush green fields, hills and the blues of the many waterways and the Southern Ocean.
Emma is an Educator and is passionate about sharing her experience and culture through her art practice within her classrooms and in workshops. As a multifaceted creative, she explores diverse art practices influenced by her journey. Each art piece is braided with learning, an enriching exchange between artist and viewer, a continuation of culture - a platform for cross cultural exchange.
