This beautiful cushion features artwork by artist Zowie Baumgart
This piece represents the sandhills that Zowie grew up playing on Minjerribah (South Stradbroke Island). Zowie Baumgart is an Indigenous Australian artist born in Canberra and raised in her family’s traditional country in Southern Queensland. Zowie is a self-taught interdisciplinary artist working across a diverse medium. With a strong understanding and creative talent ever since her high school days, she is now diversifying into a more traditional art expression. Raising her own family has brought her closer to her family origins, connection to the land and ignited a renewed passion for the representation of her people’s oral history through painting. Her works represent the combined narratives of both her mothers and fathers clans, the Kombumerri people and the Butchulla of Maryborough and Fraser Island.
