Josephine has painted her country and her families' country, Nyilla, which is near the Canning Stock route, in the middle of the Great Sandy Desert.
 

"When I was young with my parents and family they showed me how to hunt and showed me my country. All the rockholes and sandunes for hunting in."
The many circles represent the tjurnu, or soakwaters, of this country.

Personal note from Laure: 
This artwork brings so much brightness and warmth, the colour palette resemble a paquet of traditional lollies spread over a canvas!
This brings so much joy...
