My name is Rachael Angus and I would like to introduce myself as Project Lead for RISE Community Art. I have 12 years of experience in healthcare and nursing with a keen interest in alternative therapies and holistic healing and a huge regard for Australian Indigenous Culture including bush medicine and Indigenous art.
It is wonderful to see painting as a way to connect with culture and tell stories about Aboriginal life which can be passed down to future generations. I particularly love that the art represents landscapes, totems, dreamtime stories, traditions and culture. There is such great comfort in creating art that can keep a clear mind, build confidence and makes you feel good!
