My image of the Kaitherr Gub (the wind before the rain) the kaitherr Gub is the wind that blows at the turn of the tide, when the outgoing tide turns into the upcoming tide.

This change in the weather bringing on the kaitherr gub followed by shattered show rains.

My design in this print represents the incoming tides and the outgoing tides.



BAYWAW MARKAY (Spirits of the whirlwinds)

This etching is my interpretation of the bad spirits of the whirlwinds.

All winds of the earth were created and are controlled by the spirits from the other side, (spiritual world) The pattern shown in this print represents the cultural beliefs of my people.

The designs flowing across represent all the different winds which that flows through the Torres Strait.

The patterns on the bottom of the prints are the energy of the seas and land causing the whirlwinds to shoot upwards and twist.

The colours I have chosen for these prints are earthly colours of the open sea to the traditional owned islands.
