My son’s wife is from Sri Lanka and most of her family still live there. When I visited them 18mths ago we formed a wonderful bond. I am an avid sketcher so while there I did many small sketches of the area and I have done many more of Australia. My original intention for this mixed media piece was to show the connection between our families and countries through my sketches but as I progressed, I realised something more. My sketches all were of plant life, or had nature involved in the subject. I realised that for me, family doesn’t just involve people. I connect strongly with nature and feel that it is part of my family.
