First to ascend in every night sky she gently rises, the brightest star, the evening star. From a glimpse at the horizon to her peak in the darkness, she guides the way through the shadows. Higher than the tallest mountains, her glow lights the path ahead. She holds the spirits of those who have passed and together they lead us forward. We look to see her each night and feel the comfort of her as she watches over us. Know that she will greet you a the sun sets, she will see you through the longest nights. Her light reflects the light within us all.

”I am a proud Ngarrindjeri woman, with strong links to the Gunditjmara people of Warrnambool.
I would like to acknowledge the Traditional Owners of the land where this artwork was created, the Peek Whuurrong people of the Marr Nation, and pay my respects to their Elders, past, present and emerging.
I recognise them and respect their cultural heritage, beliefs and relationship with the land, which is important to all of the Marr Nation people living today.
I acknowledge the Elders of the Ngarrindjeri people who have given me support in my journey as I recognise who I am as a Ngarrindjeri woman and Artist.
Thank you kindly for your purchase and support of my arts practice.”
