The Artwork

Light, medium, dark - we are all the same.


Created by First Nations artist Kimberley Engwicht, a Bundjalung and South Sea Islander woman, currently residing on Yugerra Country.

Kim started out experimenting with ink and brush pens on paper but later turned to digital media. She loves to create fun, bright and positive digital art along with different styles of lettering. The majority of her work is big and bold, with strong use of block colours.

She loves to empower others with her art and always tries to use her artwork for the greater good, helping and encouraging others where she can.

"Let's challenge the stereotypes of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people by telling the world that we come in all different shades. Light, medium, dark - we are all the same."

Great T-shirt Design

T-Shirt feels and looks terrific. My only constructive feedback is that the t-shirt it is too long in length. It would be great if Life Apparel Co would have choices of t-shirt lengths. My height is 165cm and the t- shirt is a bit too long for me.
