The two stages of ‘Sunday in a Bush Camp’ were painted over three years. The artist’s original concept included only men so she added the women and children in the second stage, imagining that they had walked from Katikati settlement to see their husbands and fathers on this day off. The artist began drawing as a tiny child, now has her own art school and is expert in many crafts.
