Statement: Truganini (1812-1876) was born on Bruny Island. The maireener Pink-tipped Kelp Shells, were made into adornments for the women. My Textile Art piece represents their idyllic life when women camped by the bay and gathered shells, the campfire going and only the sound from the forest, wildlife and sea.
