Kimberley Art

Kim from Mt Hart (Story continued....)

"...After Africa I returned home to Queensland and settled back into Western life with the help of my family. I had the chance to work on some great community art projects like helping create 30 handmade guitars and paint them up with my art. These handmade guitars were distributed throughout the local primary schools around Brisbane for the kids to use during their music lessons..."

Handmade Guitars

"...I also got to spend a fair bit of time over on Stradbroke Island with the Salt Water Murris Art Group, and got the chance to do a collection of paintings recording the history, fauna and flora of Ormiston House. These paintings were given to the Carmelite Nuns who are the custodians of Ormiston House..."

"...And after a while I decided to travel to the Kimberley because it is a place that has always called me. So I came up here doing WWOOFing (Willing Workers On Organic Farms) which means you get food and a bed in return for 4-6 hours work per day. I was planning on returning home, but Taffy and Mt Hart changed everything, and I am now helping run the business up here..."
