About the Collection
‘Journeys’ serves as a reminder that through the darkness there will always be light. Over every mountain is a new adventure, and even when things are really difficult, your connection to culture and the support of those you love will give you the strength to get through. The campsites on the painting represent different journey points and important events in Caity's life. Some good and some hard, but all contributing to who she is today.
WHAT EACH SYMBOL MEANS
The mountains represent all the struggles Caity has overcome and how she continues to connect back to culture when things become difficult.
The suns represent a reminder that through the darkness there will always be light.
There are also many treasured hidden symbols throughout the painting; including a music symbol representing her papa; a mother and child, representing herself and her son and flowers that represent her grandmother.
Through this collaboration, Caitlyn will be supporting a charity that sits close to her heart, The Stars Foundation. This Charity helps support Indigenous girls and young women to attend and remain engaged at school, complete Year 12 and move into full-time work or further study.
