La Macina di San Cresci



“Artists are interesting creatures. We can be obsessive, dedicated, spirited and single minded in our pursuit for that perfect realisation of our art. We tend to be outsiders and are often that square peg in the round hole, so when you find an oasis like San Cresci you hold on tight -- for it’s that sense of belonging which welcomes you.”

After graduating high school I spent the next 8 years between travelling the world every second year, and studying and saving every other. My university education included fine art, philosophy, psychology and anthropology. I graduated with Honors in Antropology. My thesis was focused on a cross-cultural study exploring art as a communicative tool that encourages individual wellbeing and social capitol. I discussed the use of art in the Northeast Arnhem Land of Australia, the Yolngu, and its presence in right of passage, passing knowledge, the spirit world and sacred sites. I paralleled the Yolngu arts practice with the western practice of Art Therapy.
