Trina Dalton-Oogjes  I am a Wathaurung Woman.Born on Gunditjmara Country (Warrnambool) and now living on Dja Dja Wrung country, I feel connected to all these communities and it is shown in my paintings.All my paintings have a story and a spiritual connection. Through art, I express my connection to my heritage, my community and country. I find painting relaxing and let each piece come to life. And depend on how I feel this will influences the colors I use from hot pink, to yellows, blues and browns and much of my inspirations comes from animals and the Australian landscape. My style is contemporary Aboriginal art with a combination of crosshatch and dot work, preferring to work with acrylic on canvas or ceramic, but sometimes I divert to other mediums at different times with basket weaving and wood burning. I enjoy traveling around different areas from the bush to the coastal areas gathering inspiration from the land and sea for my works.I have been interested in art & crafts from my early childhood, being encouraged to experiment with different forms of mediums and then later on concentrating on acrylics on canvas with exhibitions and sharing my culture with others ******************************************************
