"These are the ripples on the surface of the river water."

The Fitzroy River runs directly behind Sonia's community. After the flood waters recede, there are billabongs that hold a plentiful supply of parlka (barramundi), kurlumajarti (catfish) and bream. She paints gapi (fish), parrmarr (rocks) where the fish is cooked, ngurti (coolamon) and karli (boomerang). Sonia paints these images over and over as though they are etched into her psyche.
