Murrook, is a self-exploration of being in a state of happiness. Bush dyed fabrics, basketry, and adornments, respond to the coastal land and seascapes of Worimi and Biripi Country, entwined into wearable art. This body of work is the artist experiences of the ‘happy place’ within self and within Country.
