    HEAR THEIR STORIES. SUPPORT THEIR DREAMS. WEAR THEIR ART.

    <div id="artwork_description">
    <h4>Waratah</h4>
    <p>Created by First Nations artist Karen Lee, a Wiradjuri woman.<br><br>
    Karen is a contemporary artist whose work is influenced aesthetically by her local environment - the Blue Mountains and Nepean River in New South Wales and its surroundings.
    <br><br>
    "I love native Australian flowers. I love their structure, which for me perhaps subconsciously is a symbol of strength, and serves as an inspiration to me when overcoming hurdles in my life. The Aboriginal name of the Waratah from the Eora people means 'red flowering tree'. Aboriginal peoples sip the dew from Waratah flowers, which was believed to bring courage to the sick. It was also sometimes infused in water and drank as a sweet treat. It is a flower that features in many varying Dreamtime stories.

    Wattle trees in flower are tied to a string of memories for me, a reminder of my youth, when they came into bloom and their aroma filled the air. I have fond memories of walking through bush, touching the soft fluffy Wattle flowers."
