Author: Jeanie Adams

This design is based on Jeanie Adams children's story books; "Pigs and Honey" and "Going for Oysters". The underlying map gives a perspective of the area and its relation to the sea. The pattern overlaying this map is based on two weaves used by the women in their handcrafts. This represents the entwined relationship between the people and the sea. The orange colour represents the people and their dependent relationship to the sea and land for food while the blue represents water and its fluidity through the community which depends on it. The gum leaf represents Jeanie and her path to the North, and the people are illustrated images by Jeanie Adams taken from the two books.
