The happiness of life
The happiness of my life is mum. Mum hand are holdings me since I was born and mum hand will holding me until fulfilment end of my life. Mother is powerful, she never let me down every time I’m falling or give up she always reach my hand and pull me up to a better life. Also every time I turn around I realise life is no better without her.
My art was a digital oil painting by using free image from online

I am stardust
By Kylee Hoffman
I believe I am more than my body, I am spirit and I am energy. When I look to the night sky, I look beyond into the infinite galaxy. I connect to the stars that shine brightly, Comforting and reassuring me that my ancestors live on and that I am part of the mystery of the cosmos.
My artwork is reflective of my time with my Nanna in her last weeks. A feeling of letting go but also reaching for on the other side. The tree is a symbol of living a colourful life and always living.

As a Palliative Care Arts Psychotherapist, a common thread shared with individuals facing end of live, is the call to nature. During the liminal phase between life and death like a bird song, nature is calling us back.
The natural environment often creates a greater sense of peace, a deepening connection, and belonging in the here, now and beyond. Nature is an important element to the human spirit: experienced with a gentle caress of a cool breeze or the gentle warm rays on our face. A shared space with loved one’s, often filled with joy, laughter and love.

My artwork represents teens, adults and children with disabilities and their ABILITY to reach their full potential and to shine bright like “gold dust”
Live for Today
By Carol Nagy
My paintings message is to enjoy every minute of every day. Even if it’s as simple as noticing a flower. Soar to your greatest heights even if that’s something as simple as singing in the shower or cooking a new recipe!
I have painted a steep ladder symbolising a hard climb and a generic person soaring as high as they can.
