An acknowledgement of Emu's back out home. This artwork is one of my favourites with how fun and fresh it feels.

When visiting out at Bourke, the emu's on the back road to Wanaaring and Louth always provide a heartwarming moment but also a good chuckle as dad's chasing his kids and mums has the day off as she wanders off into the scrub. Emu was always a huge part of our life growing up as Uncles, cousins and brothers would collect emu eggs to blow and paint or carve on. (Mum and my grandmothers would never say no to a decent cake or bread and butter pudding from one egg)

But my relationship had developed and changed over time when I became a teenager as I developed an allergy to Emu feathers and the oil in their skin. This became a sore point for me as emu's were always so beloved but I couldn't engage with the feathers when crafting and in ceremonial practices. Then the healing properties and traditional use of the oil from emus also felt like a disconnection. But, I learnt that I can still engage even though it may be from a distance but I can still connect through photos of them and paintings. This is my connection of telling my experience by revisiting my time with them through painting.
