Kartika Medcraft-Smith

Pakana Dreaming

Kartika Medcraft-Smith is a proud Leterrermairrener and Plangermaireener Pakana woman from North East Tasmania, a descendant of Mannalargenna with NSW Wiradjuri family connections, raising a family on Ngunnawal and Ngambri country in the beautiful ACT. Her artwork is inspired by the Tasmanian Mole Creek Caves used by her ancestors for birthing, storing food, shelter, creating tools and teaching.
