We are pleased to announce that Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artist and AHPA member Rachel Radcliffe has been commissioned to create an original artwork to be used for resources related to AHPA’s Reconciliation Action Plan (RAP).
AHPA thanks everyone who submitted an EOI earlier this year. AHPA’s Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander committee were impressed by the standard of submissions.
A little bit about Rachel:
I am a Yamatji/Martu woman born in Geraldton, Western Australia. When I was young, I would paint and do various arts with my mother including making jewellery and paintings. I love painting and I do it to tell stories and keep connected to my Aboriginal culture. My mother and family have passed down traditional techniques which I use in both canvas paintings and digital artwork. Since 2015, I have worked full time and studied a Bachelor of Health Science to ultimately help improve the health outcomes for my people. With the demand and stress of working full time and studying part-time, I was able to come back down, relax and be creative in my art.
