Pauline Syron-Coxon will be the featured artist of the month for August at Jindabyne Tourist Information Centre for The Art Room.
She has created a series of paintings for the exhibition that reflect the Australian landscape of the Alpine region.
Pauline Syron-Coxon is a descendant of the Aboriginal people of the Worimi and Biripi people. Pauline is a self-taught artist who started her art in 1999 being inspired by her Koori Nanna, who passed away that year.
In 2010 Pauline with her husband, Anthony, began their journey to explore the Snowy Mountains. Drawn to the rugged beauty of the area, Pauline felt a connection to the country and with her family have relocated to Berridale.
Pauline’s art, which is acrylic on canvas captures the landscape, flora and fauna of the Alpine country, respecting the traditional owners of this country.
Pauline’s Aboriginal heritage of the Barrington Tops is the country of mountains and snow in winter, our song lines, stories and people are from this landscape.
“ I wish to share my journey with everyone, welcome,” she said.
Country - Worimi and Biripi, Clan groups Warringal (Barrington) and Wallamba (Wallis Lake Forster) and Biripi (Manning River).
