Indigenous artist

Maria Watson-Trudgett

I'm a professional artist and Cultural Consultant - First Nations Strategic Advisor:

  • Art Commissions
  • Artwork Licensing
  • Artwork for merchandise and Reconciliation Action Plans
  • Collaborations
My artworks express my connections to my Aboriginal culture, in contemporary expressions of now. My painting style is a contemporary fusion of abstract and Aboriginal art. These two styles represent my Aboriginal culture and the abstracts of my culture, which arose from colonisation. At times I use groups of symbols as a way of narrating a story and preserving cultural traditions. It is the way our people communicated and passed on information for thousands of years prior.
