My print is based on my personal experiences of me working on the lugger boat called "Yancy Taum" and how we'd be using the stars at night to navigate to and from island to island at night using only the stars

The image of the lady in the picture represents my Mother who told me to jump on the lugger "Yancy Taum " to earn a income for myself after i was suspended from T. I High school back in 1990 .

The star consolation is my star sign Virgo and the Southern Cross you see in the print we used as the main stars to navigate our way home.

I'm grearful for have had this experience on the boat for nearly a whole year working out on the sea because it made me learnt a lot things and also made me really want to go back to school and finish it off properly.
