About the Painting
In this art piece Julianne has portrayed the connection Nyungar people have with the land and animals throughout the six seasons. The concentric circle connect a meeting place to each season as the colours of the country around us changes. Colours according to each season and the birds are our connections as animals and totems.

Birak: December – January, season of the young
Bunuru: February – March, Season of adolescence
Djeran: April – May, season of adulthood
Makuru: June – July, Season of fertility
Djilba: August – September, season of conception
Kambarang: October – November, season of birth
About the Artist
Kaya I’m a whadjuk Nyungar artist Born in Subiaco Perth western Australia, and raised in Ngaruawahia New Zealand from Tainui Decent on my dad’s side.
I’ve always found that by participating in arts mainly painting and sculptures and weaving it presents an opportunity to develop and provide freedom of individuality .. allows the artist to portray meaning and passion that is often buried deep within and begins the journey into healing and setting a connection to today’s world while taking into account the journey that has already been travelled .
I like to learn from my elders the traditional ways in which they would create art to tell stories and add my own twists on things to retell my own stories for future generations to come.
